French President Emmanuel Macron visited England on Thursday to discuss a host of bilateral issues, from migration to Brexit. That seems like a pretty routine, boring story. Yet excitement is rising in both countries because of a single piece of cloth. Yes, cloth. Macron is expected to allow the Bayeux Tapestry to visit England for perhaps the first time in its history. This might well be the first time it's been seen in England since it was finished around 950 years ago.
The new U.S. Embassy in London has been criticized by none other than President Trump for being expensive, with a price tag of about $1 billion. But it’s still cheaper than the U.S. embassy complexes in Kabul, Afghanistan and Baghdad, Iraq. Given their locations, both complexes require heavy security. But the US. Embassy in Baghdad is an entirely self-contained colony. It covers more than 100 acres of prime real estate in downtown Baghdad. That’s almost the same size as Vatican City (108 acres).
That seems like a pretty routine, boring story. Yet excitement is rising in both countries because of a single piece of cloth. Yes, cloth. Macron is expected to allow the Bayeux Tapestry to visit England for perhaps the first time in its history. This might well be the first time it's been seen in England since it was finished around 950 years ago. The Bayeux Tapestry is one of the most famous pieces of medieval art. It's a beautiful 230-foot-long work of hand-stitched storytelling.
“I am a Norwegian,” says Norwegian statesman, Jan Egeland @NRC_Egeland, tells @pritheworld “but the only thing that would make me emigrate to the States is the vibrant multicultural society of the United States.”
@NRC_Egeland Hello sir. Hoping you can help us today (Friday) with an interview here at the main BBC show on US public radio, @pritheworld to discuss US prestige/reputation/influence in the light of recent comments. Pls DM me. Thanks
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".
