UK universities receive around 25% of their income directly from the government budget. This results in a cost for the tax payers of around £ 7 billion, give or take. Compared to the scales on which countries like the UK are used to spending it is a ridiculously small amount. For instance, to use an archetypal example, the British Ministry of Defence spent around £ 38.3 billion in 2016, over 5 times what Universities received from the government.
The Ramblas, one of the most iconic streets in Barcelona, was one of the latest objectives of the terror-van strategy adopted by extremist terrorism. Realistically vans are perfect weapons. They are easy to come by and due to their role in modern transport, very hard to control. An everyday object, turned into a lethal weapon, was used to kill 13 people, and injure over 100 more. The list of victims is however much longer, and I would like to take this opportunity to pay homage to their loss.
In 1971, Houston Sports received the Rockets who were founded four years earlier in San Diego. I’d also like to point out how weird it is that they were the Rockets in San Diego before becoming the Houston Rockets. It’s like the inverse of the New Orleans Jazz moving to Utah where the name made MORE sense after the move. All digressions aside, in that time since 1959, Houston sports has had plenty of amazing athletes don a Houston sports jersey, becoming icons of the city in the process.
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".
