A no-deal Brexit would take 4.7% out of UK economy over 10 years, costing the UK £105bn and each member of the population £1,585, research by a US thinktank has found. The study by the authoritative Rand Corporation, one of the largest to look at the effect of various forms of Brexit on the European, British and American economies, finds that the UK will be better off under a “no-Brexit” outcome. This scenario includes the softest Brexit option of remaining in the single market as Norway does.
Boris Johnson has said his plea to the Iranians to release British dual-nationals such as Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe had been “received and understood”, but it was too early to be confident of whether his call for her release on humanitarian grounds would be met. The UK foreign secretary said he hoped the presence of Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s three-year-old daughter in Tehran awaiting her mother’s release, would be uppermost in the Iranian’s minds.
Boris Johnson, the UK foreign secretary, has ended his two-day visit to Iran without any announcement on the release of the British dual national Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, but has agreed with President Rouhani that Britain and Iran wanted to make progress “on the removal of all obstacles in the Anglo-Iranian relationship”.
Labour foreign affairs spokeswomen @EmilyThornberry asked @BorisJohnson if UK govt would support a plan whereby Iran, Hezbollah and Shia militias quit Syria, provided Assad stays in power, coalition forces depart & international community help with reconstruction.
The foreign secretary Boris Johnson has left Tehran with no news of an immediate breakthrough on Zaghari-Ratcliffe. To be expected and visit regarded as useful. Unclear as to whether her court hearing will proceed today.
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".
