That is also giving the EU a pause, according to a person familiar with the discussions among the 27 governments. The bloc doesn’t want to approve an offer on the divorce bill, only to find May replaced by someone who has different ideas, the person said. That underlines how perilous May’s position is: presenting a firm offer on the bill and getting nothing in return is exactly the kind of thing that would weaken her. And her political survival is out of her hands.
Germany is keen for Brexit talks to move on to the next phase as the European side wants two things for a breakthrough: a better offer on the divorce bill, and greater certainty that Theresa May can stay the course, according to people familiar with the situation. In Germany, there is political will for talks to move on to trade, even as Chancellor Angela Merkel is fighting for her own political survival.
“I can’t not tell the prime ministers that we should respect each other, that we should strive for our political families to have respect for other countries in the public debate, in the European Parliament and in other European institutions,” Szydlo told reporters in Gothenburg, Sweden, before a meeting with her EU counterparts on Nov. 17. “Debates should be based on the truth.”
#EUETS reform approved by member states. What an outcome! Only 2 countries abstained, one was against. UK in favor. Rumors of Britain building a blocking minority with eastern members didn't materialize. Carbon prices up. More on @TheTerminal
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".
