Japan has long been associated with quality products. But as companies like Toyota, Takata, Mitsubishi Motors and now Kobe Steel have shown, product-related scandals are also a fact of life. The latter company is now under investigation for the falsification of data relating to the durability of its metals. Understanding how to communicate effectively in times of crisis, particularly overseas, can make the difference between restoring corporate reputation and allowing it to sink without trace....
Resistance to Bain Capital’s bid to buy ADK is intensifying, with WPP accusing the Japanese company of having "improperly attempted to terminate its co-operation and business alliance". In a new statement, WPP notes that ADK’s sale of its 2.4% stake in WPP, which is worth around $576m (£435m), goes against shareholder advice and would trigger "damaging" tax charges and cancel promised dividends.
ADK has issued a statement in response to recent criticism from WPP, making clear its intention to proceed with a sale to Bain Capital. The Japanese advertising agency reiterated that its 20-year partnership with WPP had failed to yield “expected synergies” and noted that the industry has “changed significantly” since the agreement began. ADK's management has made the painful but necessary decision to unwind a capital and business alliance that simply no...
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".
