British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron have vowed to continue cooperating on a range of issues after the UK leaves the European Union. The two sides also promised to help each other in their respective foreign military operations: British helicopters to help France's fight against ISIL and al-Qaeda in North Africa and French assistance in securing the EU's eastern borders with Russia.
Lesbos, Greece - A surge in refugees heading to Greece over the past three months has put a strain on emergency facilities on Lesbos island, home to an over-populated and increasingly dire refugee camp. The camp on Lesbos was built to host 2,000 people, but it is now home to three times as many refugees. The conditions are so difficult that some refugees say they are willing to hurt themselves in the hopes of being removed from the camp.
The past few months have seen a sharp increase in refugees arriving on Lesbos by boat from Turkey. Over a million people have landed on the Greek island since 2015. Conditions inside the main government-run camp are poor and there is little prospect of travelling further into Europe. Despite this, up to 200 people are arriving on the island on a daily basis. Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull reports from Lesbos.
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".
