China is struggling to wean itself off coal. Reports this week that primary school students in the northern province of Hebei were having their classes outside in sub-zero temperatures, in a bid to soak up any warmth left in the sun, caused a public outcry on social media. Their predicament came about because some schools had not switched over from coal to gas or electric heating in time for winter.
Chinese policymakers should prioritise financial stability over economic growth while the country's banks must gradually increase their capital in order to reduce risk, the International Monetary Fund has recommended in a new report. The IMF's first health check of China's financial system since 2011 found that tensions were emerging as China's credit expansion had outpaced GDP growth.
At a lavish ceremony in London's Saatchi gallery just over a year ago, cashed-up Chinese automotive company Nio launched the world's fastest electric car, the EP9. Accelerating to 200km per hour in just a sliver over seven seconds and built by a company backed by half a dozen of the biggest names in the Chinese tech industry, the launch attracted plenty of buzz. Founder William Li said at the time the EP9 was "born to push limits" and show "what is possible with electric vehicles".

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".
