That the world is burdened by political instability is hard to dispute. Over the past year, the UK has voted to leave the European Union, then endured a general election that left it more divided and confused than ever. US citizens selected Donald Trump as their 45th president, based, it seems, in large part on the buccaneering businessman’s debatable claim to be a world class dealmaker.
Riots, terror attacks and a welter of security issues are stalling and undermining many of the infrastructure projects central to China’s grandiose $900bn One Belt, One Road programme. The Chinese government is determined to build a vast grid of railway lines, highways, pipelines and ports that slash the cost of shipping Chinese goods overland to Europe, and by sea to South Asia, Africa and beyond. But its hopes of rewriting globalisation in its own image are running into trouble.
Cyprus’s remarkable revival from near-basket case four years ago to a flourishing economy that has rid itself of the legacy of a once-toxic banking system, is a model for any nation that finds itself in financial and economic dire straits. “The reason we are having this meeting here is to showcase a genuine success story,” said EBRD president Suma Chakrabarti. “And it really is a success story — one of recovery and return to growth.
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".
