Bob Diamond, the former Barclays Plc chief executive officer turned bank investor, said Britain’s exit from the European Union will bring the continent’s nations closer together, comments that drew opposition from some bank executives. Brexit is a “‘net positive” for European banks outside the U.K., Diamond, whose Atlas Merchant Capital invests in lenders, said Tuesday at the Bloomberg European Banking Conference in Milan.
With the Bundestag, or lower house of parliament, set to expand to six parties in the national vote, building a governing coalition may be the most difficult yet. Assuming that Merkel wins, there’s a higher probability that she’ll ally with the pro-market Free Democrats and the Greens than renew her alliance with the SPD, which has governed since 2013, Holger Schmieding, chief economist at Berenberg, said in a note to clients.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel made her final pitch to voters saying she’ll keep Europe’s dominant country in the political middle of the road, shouting over noisy far-right protesters as she wound up her re-election campaign before Sunday’s national vote. With all polls showing Merkel’s Christian Democratic-led bloc in the lead, the three-term chancellor positioned herself as a bulwark of stability whose international standing will help maintain peace and prosperity.
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".
