The pre-match build-up to the bidding for English Premier League TV rights is in full swing. Soccer's bigwigs are betting that the next three-year broadcasting package will fetch even more than the current 5.1 billion pound ($6.9 billion) deal, most of which comes from the pockets of Rupert Murdoch-backed Sky Plc. They hope the content-hungry behemoths of Silicon Valley and Seattle will force the price to ever more ludicrous heights.
"Move fast and break things" might just have broken. That's the well-worn unofficial motto of technology upstarts, those disrupters of the status quo like Uber Technologies Inc. that aim to move quickly to establish themselves, win over customers and ward off would-be competitors. Normally what breaks when tech upstarts move fast is the software code.
And while Trump might be emotionally attached to a "very big and exciting" trade deal with a post-Brexit Britain, American negotiators will probably focus on getting the best deal, sector-by-sector, regardless, especially given such a deal would need to be signed off by Congress. What this likely means in practice is getting more American goods flowing into Britain -- including goods that weren't allowed in when the U.K. was an EU member, such as chlorine-washed chicken and hormone-fed beef.
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".
