IF you can spare 71 minute of your precious life, please watch The Party, the latest film offering from Sally Potter (Ginger & Rosa, 2012; Rage, 2009). Indeed, I implore you to see it. This is film making at its very best. A belter of a film that you will want to watch time and time again. Shot in black and white, it packs more into 71 minute than some films do in three times the length. It will make you laugh and cringe in equal parts.
If we had a bigger and broader financial adviser community, I am sure we would already be part way to providing a solution. But that vision of an adviser Nirvana is not going to happen in my lifetime or anyone else’s. What a shame. So we need to look at other ideas. Opinions on what should be done to boost the habit tend to ratchet up in intensity as the Autumn Statement approaches or a Budget is in the offing.
THE novels of the quite brilliant Ian McEwan often make for great cinema as evidenced by Enduring Love (2004) and Atonement (2007) amongst many others. Now add to the list On Chesil Beach shown on the final day of the BFI London Film Festival at a packed Curzon Mayfair. The focal point for the story, that begins in the early 1960’s, is the marriage evening of Edward (Billy Howle) and Florence (Saoirse Ronan). Two beautiful individuals in the prime of life.
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".
