Homeowners should consider grabbing a record low rate mortgage while they last, with lenders warning that rates may not go any lower. Borrowers can lock into two-year fixed rate mortgage at just 0.99 per cent at the moment - or secure a five-year fix at 1.64 per cent - but those waiting for even better deals could be disappointed, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders.
Go-Ahead group expects passenger numbers and revenues to have declined 4 per cent over the past year at its Govia Thameslink Railway, which includes the strike-hit Southern Rail. But the transport group, which also has a bus division, said it was on track to meet its full-year profit forecast as strong bus passenger numbers in some regions offset slow sales growth at Southern, which was afflicted by strike action over the past year.
UK chip maker Imagination Technologies has put itself up for sale just months after Apple said it will no longer use its products from next year. The company, which has been making graphic chips for Apple’s iPhone since its launch ten years ago, said it has already received interest from a number of potential buyers. It comes as Apple said in April it would no longer use the key components made by Imagination from next year and make its own graphic chips instead.
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".
