May must keep potential rebels on board, because even with the support of 10 lawmakers from Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party, she has a majority of just 13, meaning that just seven Tories need to vote with the opposition to inflict defeat on her. So far, more than 150 amendments have been tabled for the Brexit bill to be considered at the committee stage, including more than a dozen apiece that Soubry, Clarke, Morgan and Grieve have signed up to.
Mainstays of the British high street took contrasting views on the economic effects of Brexit as the Bank of England shifted toward raising interest rates. James Dyson, the man behind the eponymous vacuum cleaner, says the prospect of a disorderly U.K. departure from the European Union doesn’t faze him. For Charlie Mayfield, chairman of John Lewis Partnership Plc, one of Britain’s best-loved retailers, Brexit “is having an impact on everyone” and rattling business confidence. So who’s right?
Theresa May leaves after casting her vote in the general election at a polling station in Sonning, U.K.U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s gamble to call a surprise election came at a huge political price. But that wasn’t the only cost. Figures published on Wednesday show the election cost the country 141 million pounds ($186 million): running the poll itself was a shade over 98 million pounds, while another 42.5 million pounds was spent on posting electoral mailshots to voters.
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".
