Newcastle owner Mike Ashley will demand to see the colour of money before agreeing to talks over a possible takeover. Ashley has been in charge for 10 years and has assured manager Rafa Benitez that it’s business as usual as the Spaniard prepares for the Toon’s return to the Premier League. Since winning promotion, the Sports Direct billionaire has received substantial interest, especially from the Far East, over either investing or possibly buying the club outright.
Cristiano Ronaldo told Sir Alex Ferguson SIX weeks ago that he wanted to leave Real Madrid. The former Old Trafford star confided in his former United boss that he was unsettled at the Bernabeu weeks before the tax allegations became public. Ronaldo and Ferguson have remained close since his £80million move to Real Madrid and chat regularly when their paths cross. Ronaldo sought out Ferguson within minutes of Real Madrid’s latest Champions League triumph in Cardiff.
In life, I have found a simple truth. The more I try to get things done, the less time I have to do them. I must decide on my priorities. In the old days, I used to set aside an hour on a daily basis to do this. Iâ€™d make complicated lists and then strategically go through and mark them from A to F, depending on their priority. Then I would take this list and painstakingly plan my day. I would schedule things down to the minute. That hour that I spent on planning was a way to procrastinate.
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".
