Robert Mugabe always saw himself as Africa’s revolutionary hero. He led Zimbabwe’s struggle for liberation from the British Empire and white colonial rule. And he became the only leader the country has known since it became an independent nation in 1980. After almost four decades of brutal oppression and economic ruin, his legacy is that of a vain and brutal dictator who ruled Zimbabwe through extortion and exploitation. Mr Mugabe was initially lionised for his singleminded patriotism.
BRUSSELS -- European broadcasters on Wednesday warned that they may be squeezed out of the market if the European Union moves forward with plans to sell off broadcast frequencies to such users as mobile phone operators.In November, the European Commission proposed selling off the open market frequencies used by broadcasters, mobile phone operators and air traffic controllers. But the European Broadcasters Union said that competition for access to spectrum will add huge costs for broadcasters.
Pity. That was what the other European Union leaders felt for Theresa May as they listened to another summit appeal from the Prime Minister to speed up the Brexit negotiations. None of them said so explicitly, but it was implied in their comments before and after the two-day meeting that ended yesterday. They were talking as if she were a colleague unaware she was about to be fired.
Merely switching traditional cotton with light wicking fabric might not seem a breakthrough. But @TIMEMagUSA rightly lists the Nike Pro #Hijab as an invention of 2017 for the simple, yet overlooked capacity to empower:
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".
