Cape Town – Without strong economic growth, indicators are showing SA is moving towards social unrest, cautioned Fred Robertson, executive chair of Brimstone Investment. "I am led to believe that Sasria is now paying out more claims than they paid out in the 1980s during the revolutionary years. People are dissatisfied – the poorest of the poor," he said as keynote speaker at the annual general meeting of the Century City branch of the Black Management Forum (BMF).
Cancun – Security has never before been so important in the aviation industry. This was emphasised by Alexandre de Juniac, director general and CEO of the International Air Transport Association (Iata), in his opening speech at the industry body’s 73rd AGM, taking place in Cancun, Mexico. He said among the challenges faced by the global aviation industry at the moment are mounting security threats, a looming infrastructure crisis and smarter regulation coming under pressure.
Cape Town - There is no reason why the tourism industry cannot strive to create black industrialists in its midst, according to Minister of Tourism Tokozile Xasa. "We can strive to have black industrialists also in the tourism industry - as long as they form part of the value chain feeding into tourism.
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".
