It’s not just U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May who is bristling at the European Union Court of Justice. Germany’s top judges, of all people, have been threatening to sidestep some of its rulings. The Federal Constitutional Court, the country’s highest tribunal, said in a ruling published last week that it has a duty to ignore the ECJ in Luxembourg in some situations.
The issue came to a head when a 2015 judgment on a ECB bond-buying program didn’t attach all the strings the German court had called for. In last week’s case, the German justices sent a request to Luxembourg for limits on the ECB’s quantitative-easing policy, arguing that without them, it may turn to the weapon of last resort. U.K. citizens turned their unease into a vote to leave the EU altogether -- and the role of the ECJ was a major part of that discussion.
Steinhoff International Holdings NV shares slumped the most on record after Manager-Magazin reported that Chief Executive Officer Markus Jooste is among employees being investigated by German prosecutors in a 2015 case tied to possible accounting fraud. The clothing and food retailer’s stock dropped as much as 14 percent in Frankfurt and traded 7.8 percent lower at 3.90 euros as of 12:12 p.m. local time. About 33 million shares traded, more than eight times the three-month daily average.
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".
