If ever there was a suitable carrot to dangle in a bid to make us work harder, this might just be it. Wealth consultancy WealthInsight and Spear’s magazine have revealed more billionaires are born in London than any other city in Europe (unless you consider Moscow part of Europe, in which case we’re second). Globally, New York and the Russian capital rank above us but seemingly 21 of the world’s billionaires were born in London, (22 are from Moscow and 52 were born in the Big Apple).
Lendy is to take over as the headline sponsor of one the world’s oldest and best known sailing regattas. The peer-to-peer (P2P) platform last week agreed a three-year deal to sponsor Cowes Week, which has a rich heritage dating back to 1826. Lendy follows in the footsteps of more traditional City players such as Aberdeen Asset Management and Skandia that have partnered the event in recent years.
Things seemed to be looking up for the Lib Dems. In electoral terms, they appeared to have their mojo back. With Labour’s policy on Brexit leaving voters somewhat confused, it fell to this tiny party of nine plucky MPs to be the unashamedly pro-Remain, anti-Brexit party. In theory, 48 per cent of the voting population was up for grabs. Alas, this idea has not survived contact with political reality.
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".
