The corporate logo on the deserted plot in a grim industrial park near Johannesburg is broken. At the front, a “To Let” sign hints at a business in decay. A solitary security guard emerges and orders a visitor to leave the premises of Sahara Computers. The company was once at the heart of the mining-to-media empire established by the Gupta family that has been embroiled in South Africa’s biggest political scandal of the democratic era.
Cyril Ramaphosa prometeu a empresários que, sob sua liderança, o Congresso Nacional Africano (CNA), o partido no poder na África do Sul, vai trabalhar junto com os investidores como leões do mesmo bando. "Temos uma presa ali. O que é essa presa? Essa presa é fazer a África do Sul avançar", disse ele no Fórum Econômico Mundial em Davos, Suíça, no mês passado.
Cyril Ramaphosa promised to “turn the tide of corruption” in his first speech as South Africa’s president, saying the nation was entering a “new dawn” following a tumultuous week that culminated in the resignation of former leader Jacob Zuma. “We should put behind us the era of diminishing trust in public institutions and weakened confidence in our country’s public leaders,” Mr Ramaphosa said on Friday in the annual state of the nation address to parliament.
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".
