Two London traders have been charged by the US financial authorities in the largest crackdown so far on manipulative “spoofing” of the markets. James Vorley, a precious metals trader, is accused of illegally placing bids and cancelling them moments later, to move prices up or down to his benefit. Mr Vorley, 37, faces possible extradition to America for the “manipulative and deceptive scheme”, US officials said.
New York has unveiled plans for its first congestion charge under which drivers will pay $11.52 (£8.31) to enter busy parts of Manhattan. Cars will have to pay the fee if they enter midtown or downtown at peak times on a weekday. Trucks and commercial vehicles would pay $25.34 (£18.28) and there would be a surcharge of between $2 (£1.44) and $5 (£3.61) per trip on for-hire vehicles like yellow cabs and Ubers.
New York’s homeless crisis is threatening to spiral out of control after 45 rough sleepers were seen on a subway train. The homeless men and women had crowded onto the underground E train when temperatures plunged to minus 15C because of a lack of shelters. As commuters looked on, they curled up under blankets with their belongings in plastic bags. One man took off his soaked boots to dry his socks.
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".
