The UK Government is to double to 2,000 the number of visas available to highly skilled technology workers and entrepreneurs in a bid to keep the talent pipeline open post-BrexitThe UK Government is doubling the number of visas available to “exceptionally” talented technology workers and entrepreneurs from around the world in a bid to tempt them into the country’s digital sector.
What amounts to a ban on consignments of waste paper and other potentially recyclable material has led to backlogs and strikes and should prompt a re-think in the West, E&T is told. Mountains of cardboard, old magazines, unsorted mixed paper and other items intended for recycling processing have been allowed to pile up around the main port of Hong Kong because of mainland China’s crackdown on contaminated imports.
Dozens of highly trained inspectors will have to be recruited by the Office for Nuclear Regulation to keep the country compliant with non-proliferation rulesCivil nuclear insiders fear the UK government is blasé about the impact that a scarcity of nuclear inspectors could have on the electricity-distribution network after Brexit.
@alantravis40 Yes, but if needs must, I guess they'll have to compromise. Someone's got to pluck those Turkeys. Maybe gov would allow in more non-Europeans (e.g. Syrian refugees) if it had greater control over migration from Europe. Or perhaps I'm being naive
@alantravis40 My point is that the pool of industrious and determined people crying out for a chance to better their lives extends beyond Bulgaria and Romania, so if cheap EU labour dries up, couldn't gov just change policy and employ non-Europeans?
Could someone please explain why cheap migrant labour always has to come from the EU? Aren't there refugees from Syria, Eritrea etc who would give their eye teeth to come to UK and do jobs like this? https://t.co/REVg4BravF
@AbiWilks Isn't the difference that we know the provenance of these views? It's in the masthead - 'The Sun says', etc - so is more transparent than some anonymous bot person on Twitter who can't be held accountable for what they write
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".
