Now that the cost of the UK’s Brexit divorce is beginning to emerge, we can calculate exactly how many Boris buses £50bn could buy. No, we are not referring to the London Routemasters – although we have worked out that with that sum you could buy 141,542 of them. We mean the “£350m weekly EU cost” that was emblazoned on the side of Vote Leave’s battlebus during the EU referendum campaign. It equates to nearly three years’ worth of the promised weekly gain.
North Korea’s efforts to develop a nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the US mainland have accelerated during the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency. The country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, has presided over a series of successful missile tests, including North Korea’s first launch of an ICBM on 4 July, a development he promised in a televised new year’s address.
Just after 12am on Monday a white van travelling at about 50mph struck a crowd of people outside the Muslim Welfare House on Seven Sisters Road, just a few hundred metres from the Finsbury Park mosque in north London. The streets were busy because it was shortly after evening prayers had finished. A 48-year-old man suspected of being the driver of the van was arrested at the scene by police.
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".
