A journalist for almost 10 years, I cover the European Central Bank and the German economy for Bloomberg News in Frankfurt. In a previous life I covered the Vatican for 7 years for several Italian and American media, including Time magazine and Religion News Service. I also worked in radio and as...
Germany’s economy slowed more than initially estimated at the start of the third quarter, leaving it trailing the euro region’s other large nations. IHS Markit’s German composite Purchasing Managers Index for July dropped to 54.7, down from 56.4 in June and missing the 55.1 flash reading. That’s a 10-month low and the first time in more than 12 years that the survey for Germany has lagged France, Italy and Spain.
Rate of people out of work remains at record low of 5.7%German unemployment continued to decline in July in a sign of confidence in Europe’s largest economy. The number of people out of a job dropped by a seasonally adjusted 9,000 to 2.537 million, data from the Federal Labor Agency in Nuremberg showed on Tuesday. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey was for a decline of 5,000. The jobless rate remained at 5.7 percent, the lowest level since the country’s reunification.
Manufacturing can serve as an example for the challenges faced by the euro-area economy. While a Purchasing Managers’ Index points to broad-based economic growth, price pressures showed further signs of easing in July: A gauge for input costs fell to a 9-month low, while charges increased at the weakest pace since the start of the year, according to IHS Markit.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
