Véronique Laury wants to make the DIY experience “a walk in the light” rather than a nightmare and feels that both B&Q and Screwfix share “the same ecosystem”Whether it’s leading a boardroom or fitting a bathroom, areas once regarded as the epitome of “a man’s world”, Véronique Laury knows what she’s talking about. She is a veteran of both, which presumably gives the boss of the company behind B&Q the necessary tools to complete the job facing her. It’s a big job, too.
The 500g pack of McVitie’s Digestives is going to be replaced by a 400g pack AlamyIt would appear that nothing is safe from the effect of rising costs in a post-Brexit world — not even McVitie’s Original Digestives. Pladis, the Turkish owner of the biscuit manufacturer, is shrinking the size of a 500g pack of Digestives to 400g as it adapts to higher ingredient costs and the fall in the value of the pound.
A fresh furore over Britain’s tax rules has erupted after it emerged that the American giant that swallowed up Cadbury is not paying UK corporation tax. Mondelez International, the US multinational that used to be part of Kraft, put in place a tax-efficient structure after its £11.5 billion takeover of Cadbury. The company has more than £8 billion of debt listed as a bond on the Channel Islands stock exchange.
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".
