Preventing overseas workers coming to the UK after Brexit will lead to more outsourcing and higher automation instead of higher wages for British workers, a report has suggested. Deutsche Bank has claimed that Brexiteers’ narrative of more and higher paid jobs for British people, especially in low-skilled sectors such as domestic workers, ignores some ‘important considerations’.
Investors piled back into JD Sports shares today after the retailer posted rising first half profits and upped its outlook for the full year. In June the retailer spooked investors after admitting that pressure on margins had risen over the past year as a result of a post-Brexit weaker pound. But today, although pressure on margins remains, JD Sports posted revenues and profits ahead of expectations, sending shares up 10 per cent at the open.
The squeeze on household finances in the UK intensified in August as inflation jumped more than expected, far outpacing rises in pay packets. The consumer prices index measure of inflation hit 2.9 per cent last month, up from July’s 2.6 per cent and above expectations of 2.8 per cent. It was last highest in April 2012, when it reached 3 per cent. The higher-than expected reading builds a stronger case for the Bank of England to look at hiking interest rates on Thursday, when its policymakers meet.
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".
