Swamped by a torrent of bad publicity over mass cancellations, and its handling of them that might give at least some of its customers pause for thought before flying with it in future, the airline needs pilots and it needs them fast. In attempt to persuade them to give up days off a bonus has been offered, reportedly £12,000 for captains, £6,000 for first officers. That’s a handy sum, even after tax has been taken off the top. Whether it will prove to be enough is open to question.
The Government’s decision to launch an urgent review of the law relating to cyclists, which could result in it bringing forward a new law of causing “death by dangerous cycling” says a lot about the way this country is run. The move follows the widely publicised case of Charlie Alliston, who knocked over mother of two Kim Briggs while riding a fixed gear bike with no front brakes.
A 50 year drain on living standards, is the effect of what the Resolution Foundation describes as Britain’s “housing catastrophe”. If you consider its figures you’ll see why “crisis”, an adjective stripped of much of its power by over use, no longer cuts the mustard. The so called ‘Silent Generation’ that grew up prior to the Second World War (1926-1945) spent just 7 per cent of its income on housing at the age of 30.
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".
