Quorn Foods, the company that produces meat substitute products, on Monday announced ‘unprecedented’ global growth for the first half of this year with global sales rising by 19 per cent. One reason the brand has offered for this impressive jump is the growing popularity of the ‘flexitarian’ diet – namely, people reducing meat consumption in favour of other sustainable protein sources.
Glaxosmithkline’s new boss Emma Walmsley today pledged to narrow the drugmaker’s research focus as part of a string of changes to streamline the group. Walmsley, who took over from Sir Andrew Witty in March, called time on 30 pre-clinical and clinical trial programmes and promised to plough 80% of Glaxo’s spending into just four areas of research: respiratory, HIV, oncology and immuno-inflammation.
Manufacturer GKN on Wednesday confirmed plans to shut its gold-plated pension scheme to head off rising costs. The 260-year-old group will shift current final-salary members into a new defined-contribution scheme, which diverts workers’ future pension payments into a pot linked to the performance of the stock market. The firm has also put a new pension funding plan in place and will pay £250 million of proceeds from a bond issue to fill a hole in the scheme.
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".
