McDonald's has ended its pricey sponsorship deal with the International Olympic Committee - meaning the famous golden arches will not appear at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. It will be the first time the burger brand has been missing from the Games in 44 years. The company had been a top sponsor - forking out a reported $100m per summer and winter games - but both the IOC and McDonald's are said to have mutually parted company.
Bradford-based supermarket chain Morrisons holds its annual general meeting today.But one firm favourite from the room will be missing, with today's meeting the first to be held since the death of Sir Ken Morrison, who died aged 85 back in February.The former boss, who's name adorns the head office, would nearly always turn out for the AGM in his Morrisons tie, before laying down his views to the current board, as the shareholders hung on his every word thanks to his superstar status.His most...
Today's UK wage figures were "astonishingly" weak says Samuel Tombs, chief UK economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics. "Thepainful experience of 2011/12, when inflation surged but wage growth weakened,appears to be repeating; firms are responding to rising raw material costs anduncertainty about the economic outlook by doubling down on pay awards. The fallin wage growth also partly reflects the fading of support from the NationalLiving Wage.
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".
