ROME – Intesa Sanpaolo SpA said Wednesday it is willing to buy at a symbolic price, and only at certain conditions, parts of the businesses of two troubled Italian banks, raising the prospects for Italy's second largest bank to become their savior. The bank said its board has given the green light to the purchase of some assets and liabilities of Banca Popolare di Vicenza SpA and Veneto Banca SpA, two mid-sized Italian lenders which asked in March to tap government money to stay afloat.
ROME—Italy is set to cut its public services spending by around €30 billion ($33 billion) in 2017, as a review aimed at improving the country’s finances and sclerotic bureaucracy appears to gather steam. The reduction is equal to nearly one-fifth of the government’s primary costs, excluding personnel expenditure, and a further €31.5 billion of...
Valeria Collina tried last June to enter the east London fast-food restaurant where her son Youssef Zaghba worked in the kitchen. He blocked her at the door, saying she couldn’t sit there unaccompanied by a male relative. “He was becoming more and more unyielding in his views on Islam,” Ms. Collina said in an interview outside Bologna. “But there was no reason to think it could end in the terrible act that he did.” More than...
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".
