We’ve had Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and even Toys R Us’ usual pre-Christmas sale, but there’s another event which gives Plymouth’s economy a festive shot in the arm: the annual Men’s Christmas Shopping Day. And this year the affair is celebrating its 25th anniversary – with Yuletide consumers, of the male variety, arriving in Plymouth to trawl 12 of the city’s leading “shops”. In other words, a large group men go on an all-day pub crawl like you wouldn’t believe.
So, you want to be a beauty therapist? Well here’s your chance, because a Plymouth training agency is recruiting students now – and all you need is enthusiasm, willingness to learn, and a bit of creativity.

The Devonport dockyard and naval base could have a secure future – and may even expand – if the UK commits to building more warships, a Government advisor says. Sir John Parker, author of the national shipbuilding strategy, said Plymouth could benefit from a modular approach which would see work spread around the country’s dockyards. His comments come as The Herald lobbies the Government to protect neighbouring Devonport Naval Base - and demands future ships are based in Plymouth.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
