NESTLE bosses have launched a desperate bid to save one of Britain’s best-loved sweet treats from an uncertain future. Company chiefs have urged euro judges to overturn a ruling that the KitKat’s distinctive four-fingered shape cannot be protected. During a hearing at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg yesterday, they argued it should be granted a trademark. But it is being fought by Cadbury’s owner Mondelez International, which sells a similar shaped chocolate bar in Norway.
BRUSSELS has unveiled plans to use major football events to promote “European values”. Eurocrats have signed a pact with governing body UEFA that will see the EU project championed at matches. They want to use big stages including the Champions League and Euro 2020 to “portray a positive image of Europe”. Their strategy will include deploying young people signed up for the bloc’s taxpayer-funded “Solidarity Corps”.
THERESA May was last night battling to hold off a fresh Brexiteers’ rebellion after she asked Brussels for transition period that could never end. Britain’s appeal for flexibility came as the Government yesterday published its legal plan for the post-Brexit window. Tory MPs also accused the PM of giving in to EU demands for new arrivals to the UK to keep residency rights until 2021.
@JamesCrisp6@NickPetre Good point, and all the bankers will have left for Frankfurt and Paris anyway. And it's pescatarians that really get me - basically 'it's OK to eat this type of animal because it's not cute'.
@HuwSayer Member States agreed to start internal scoping back at the end of last year. They're consulting with Team Barnier of course but he currently only has guidelines for the Withdrawal Agreement + Transition. The future relationship ones will be signed off at the March 23 Council.
@JamesCrisp6 If three-headed chickens will solve the KFC carnage then I for one welcome them. By all accounts the country is descending into some kind of Mad Max dystopia where people are trading bottle tops for scraps of chicken bone out of bins.
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".
