The UAE’s retailers are expecting a big boost in sales over Eid Al Fitr, with some already reporting record figures as the holiday nears, while Eid sales and promotions are also contributing to an ebullient retail sector. "In the last two days our sales have been up 400 per cent compared to the same period last year," said Hamdi Kulahcioglu, the general manager of Tryano, the department store in Yas Mall.
Third-party logistics companies such as Deliveroo and Talabat pose a threat to the country’s food and beverage (F&B) sector, according to the chief executive of Dubai’s Freedom Pizza. The UAE explosion in F&B delivery is placing more pressure on the beleaguered sector struggling with weak consumer sentiment and a constant supply of new concepts and geographies.
Philippine Airlines (PAL) has relaunched its business class service on flights to Dubai after a 50 per cent jump in passenger traffic to the UAE in the three months to the end of June. PAL took over the Manila to Dubai route from its low-cost cousin, PAL Express, in 2014 and has only recently deployed its A330 aircraft, which allows for a business class service. PAL will fly its 368-seater A330 with 18 seats in business class.
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".
