In this article from our archives, we talked to Lufthansa’s Product Director about the airline’s first incursions in providing satellite-based In-Flight Connectivity (IFC). With the Paris Air Show 2017 going on this week and since the Global Connected Aircraft Summit happened just a few weeks ago, it’s interesting to contrast how things have changed. This story was originally published in January 2010.
We are well used to seeing significant GDP growth figures for emerging market economies. But do those headline-grabbing numbers reflect the reality on the ground? India saw GDP growth of 7.5 per cent year on year in the first quarter of 2015, but Rajiv Sasha Raichand, finance director of Brookfield Multiplex in Mumbai, says that the reality is "very sector-specific". E-commerce and "e-tailing" (online retailing) are seeing massive growth.
Corporate governance can be seen as a set of mechanisms put in place to protect the value of investors' residual claims. In the past two decades, China has had one of the fastest growing economies globally. For Chinese companies, some of the Anglo-American corporate governance practices may be relevant and applicable, while others may not be, because of its unique business climate that is subject to the influence of both capitalist and socialist views (Liu et al., 2011).
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".
