The ride-hailing company Uber has had its attempt to renew its license to operate in London rejected for what officials call "a lack of corporate responsibility." According to a report in The Guardian, the problems involve serious criminal offenses, obtaining medical certificates and driver background checks. Uber's license with the city expires on Sept. 30, and it has 21 days to appeal the revocation. It can continue to operate while it pursues the appeal.
Residents of the Irish Channel, like in many other New Orleans neighborhoods, have grown accustomed to rolling with the infrastructure punches the city throws at them - boil water advisories, drainage deficiencies and substandard streets to name a few. As of late, they've taken to furnishing potholes in the riverside neighborhood with outdoor furniture and other decor. At least three spaces where street slabs used to be have become palates for the frustration and creativity of locals.
Jennifer Lawrence, the Oscar-winner who's among the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, will be in New Orleans early next year, but it won't be for a movie role. The politically outspoken actress is on the board of directors for Represent.Us -- " a non-partisan movement to pass tough anti-corruption laws in cities and states across America," according to its website.
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".
