Looking abroad for a cheap place to live? Avoid Angola. Luanda, the capital of the oil-rich nation, retook its ranking as the most expensive city for expatriates from second-place Hong Kong, according to Mercer’s annual survey. The cost of renting a three-bedroom unfurnished house of international standards in an appropriate neighborhood actually slid in Luanda, where the economy has been hit by the crude-price rout.
The proposal is the latest attempt by Cell C to push through the sale of a 45 percent shareholding to Johannesburg-based Blue Label for 5.5 billion rand, a deal agreed in October after almost a year of talks. It’s being cast as a debt refinancing rather than a takeover as South African regulators may demand a license reapplication in the event of a change of ownership, the people said.
The proposed transaction will see Cell C split about 9 billion rand ($688 million) of borrowings into three special purpose vehicles, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. Johannesburg - Cell C is seeking to cut its debt by 73 percent as part of a deal that will help South Africa ’s third-largest mobile-phone operator sell a stake to Blue Label Telecoms while retaining its operating license, according to two people familiar with the matter.
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".
