BORIS Johnson is set to demand Theresa May hands over a £100million a week Brexit dividend to the NHS in a Cabinet showdown this morning. The Foreign Secretary says the money is necessary to stave off the challenge of Jeremy Corbyn, and also to keep his referendum campaign promise. In the run-up to 2016’s vote he toured the country on a bus emblazoned with the now-infamous pledge that exiting the EU would allow the Government to give the health service and extra £350million a week.
DAVID Cameron has joked that he hasn’t “joined the Peaky Blinders” after he was snapped in a flat cap at Disneyland Paris. The former Prime Minister confirmed it really was him snapped at the theme park over the weekend, saying he took his children while wife Samantha was working in the French capital. But after his new hat raised eyebrows and some unfortunate comparisons, the 51-year-old said he only bought it to keep “warm and dry” – and wasn’t inspired by BBC’s Birmingham crime drama.
FIRST-TIME buyers could actually end up paying more for their new homes after Philip Hammond's stamp duty cut, according to a powerful Commons committee. They are warning the Chancellor's plans are likely to push prices up by at least the amount the reduction is supposed to save, rending it pointless. The cross-party group of MPs say the reforms unveiled last year to tackle the housing crisis will fail without fresh impetus, such as removing council borrowing caps.
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".
