Theresa May's offer to EU citizens has been rejected as a "damp squib" by the chief Brexit negotiator in the European Parliament. In a major blow to the Prime Minister, Guy Verhofstadt said her plan casts a "dark cloud" over people's status and risks leaving them with "second-class citizenship". Mrs May used a dinner with the other 27 nations last month to unveil her "fair and serious" offer to let 3.2million EU citizens in Britain stay after Brexit .
Northern Ireland's powersharing crisis is set to drift on through the summer after talks were scaled down - with a deal before the autumn unlikely. DUP leader Arlene Foster made the bleak statement today despite the government threatening to replace the Stormont assembly with direct rule from Westminster. She said: "We are going to keep working at it through the summer and hopefully we can come to an agreement later on in the year. "We are certainly up for an agreement, we are up for devolution."
The Northern Powerhouse minister has quit the Government in a new blow to Theresa May. Andrew Percy left to "pursue other challenges" despite being asked to continue his role in Theresa May's reshuffle. His role was designed to oversee ex-Chancellor George Osborne's flagship project of improving infrastructure and business in the north. His departure comes after another minister, Lord Bridges of the Brexit Department, used the reshuffle to quit his job.
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".
