Argentina’s lower house approved a bill on Tuesday that changes how pensions are calculated, clearing the way for President Mauricio Macri to push through other proposals designed to narrow the budget deficit and open up the economy. Lawmakers approved the overhaul of the pension system by 128-116 votes and two abstentions, after more than 15 hours of debates. A riot outside Congress briefly halted the session, while a general strike against the changes added pressure on Macri’s allies.
Macri can now move on to the rest of his legislative agenda, which includes efforts to change the tax system and labor laws. His government has vowed to narrow an overall fiscal deficit that has remained above 6 percent of gross domestic product by cutting subsidies, widening the tax base and reducing labor costs. The peso rose 0.5 percent to 17.49 per dollar, the first gain in four days, as investors saw an improved outlook for Macri’s plans.
President says he may run again in 2019 to see plans throughArgentina’s ambitious reform plans will be vulnerable to global debt markets in the coming years, said President Mauricio Macri, who gave his clearest indication yet that he will seek a second term to fulfill them. Macri said in an interview with Bloomberg News on Tuesday that it will take time to lower double-digit inflation and to cut labor costs that have kept real-economy investors at bay.
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".
