French President Emmanuel Macron’s approval rating fell 7 points to 36% in a YouGov opinion poll published Thursday, making him less popular than his Prime Minister Edouard Philippe. Philippe’s positive rating fell 2 points to 37% in July, the poll showed. The new government’s approval rating dropped 5 points to 33%, and the number of respondents expressing a negative view of the government jumped 16 points to 52%. The poll was carried out online July 26-27 among a sample of 1,003 French adults.
Lone drinking is no longer the preserve of the awful old soak. This isn’t to say the lone drinker shouldn’t be avoided, because they absolutely should, at all costs. Though these days, that’s as much because they don’t want to be bothered while doing the crossword as it is because they’re got objectionable political views, are boring you about football, or have just shat their pants.
A French prosecutor opened a preliminary probe into one of President Emmanuel Macron’s key ministers, maintaining pressure on the government in its first weeks in office. Brest prosecutor Eric Mathais said his inquiry aims to establish whether Regional Development Minister Richard Ferrand committed any crime when, as managing director of the Mutuellles de Bretagne, he gave contracts to both his current partner and his former wife.
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".
