The French president, Emmanuel Macron, is to visit Calais, two days before a meeting with Theresa May to discuss the handling of the migration crisis at the Channel port. France has already warned it is seeking an overhaul of the 2003 Le Touquet agreement that shifted British border controls to the French side, and will be demanding “a certain number of improvements” from London.
A Frenchwoman nicknamed the “Black Widow of the Côte d’Azur” has gone on trial accused of killing two elderly men for their money and poisoning two others. Patricia Dagorn was described in police reports as a “venal and unscrupulous” woman who preyed on the affections of her ageing and wealthy lovers. She was accused of murder, poisoning and the administration of harmful substances as the four-day hearing in Nice opened on Monday.
Catherine Deneuve has apologised to female victims of sexual assault who were shocked and hurt by the controversial letter she signed attacking the #MeToo campaign. The French actor said she stood by the statement that caused an international outcry when it was published last week, but distanced herself from a number of other female signatories. Le Monde newspaper, that ran the original letter, described Deneuve’s response to the row as “a form of mea culpa”.
@YodaKnight72@BM_Bourguignon@guardian 1. Journalists don't write their own headlines. 2. As you can read: "French actor says she stands by letter..." saying exactly that she stands by the letter, but she apologised at the end to victims of sex attacks who might have felt offended.
#Macron praises Calais police for what he says is a difficult and unusual mission dealing with migrants, but says their behaviour must be exemplary. No more waking people up in middle of night or using teargas during mealtimes.
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".
