Egypt moved to ease a dispute over poppy seeds in wheat cargoes after a spat with international traders threatened to lead to boycotts and jeopardize food supplies. Two shipments held up at Egypt’s Safaga port amid concerns over toxic poppy seeds have now been authorized to unload, and officials tried to assure the public that non-harmful poppies are common in Europe and can’t be used to produce narcotics.
Um número cada vez maior de carregamentos de cacau do Equador tem sido devolvido devido à presença de sementes de capim-camalote, segundo o Serviço de Inspeção de Saúde Animal e Vegetal do Departamento de Agricultura dos EUA. As interceptações deste ano foram as primeiras registradas desde 2013. O capim-camalote, geralmente encontrado nos trópicos e nos subtrópicos, é proibido nos EUA porque compete por nutrientes do solo, água e luz com culturas como o milho e o algodão.
“There’s a very competitive white-sugar market in Europe developing, but EU tariffs and restrictions on cane sugar artificially inflate our costs, pushing us out of the market,” said Gerald Mason, senior vice president of corporate affairs at Tate & Lyle, which is owned by American Sugar Refining Inc. “We expect the U.K. to have in its toolbox in the future the ability to set its own tariff rates on sugar.”
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".
