A new Credit Suisse report casts serious doubt on a widely accepted global economic trend. Sub-Saharan Africa has experienced solid economic growth in recent years, with the World Bank projecting 5.6% GDP growth across the region in 2016-2017 even when South Africa is discounted. As a World Bank chart demonstrates (see left), sub-Saharan Africa is outperforming the rest of the developing world.
Former defense secretary Robert Gates isn't optimistic that the landmark July 2015 nuclear deal with Iran will lead the country to halt any of its disruptive policies in the Middle East or its support for terrorist groups.
As President Barack Obama has often argued, a nuclear agreement with Iran will not be based on "trust." Now that an agreement has been finalized, the US and its partners intend to hold Iran to what the believe to be a vigorous and even invasive verification regime.
And here's a grimly ironic diagnosis of the conditions which led to the Civil War just a few generations later—the fact the essay's about religious freedom rather than the abolition of slavery doesn't make this passage any less eerily dead-on https://t.co/J69VyGon2L
Remarkable how much moral and philosophical ground he manages to cover in the space of like, 1700 words. Also such a thrilling and brilliant revearsal (at least by our contemporary standards) to use Newton and Galileo as arguments *for* protecting religion from the government
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".
