There are fewer incentives to work in Britain now that the pound has fallen in value TIMES PHOTOGRAPHER JACK HILLA senior policymaker at the Bank of England has claimed that more European Union citizens may leave than come to Britain within a few years. Michael Saunders, one of the Bank’s nine rate-setters, said that he “would not be surprised if [flows] turn negative — more people leave than arrive, at some stage”.
A battle for GKN’s aerospace arm, which supplies parts for Black Hawk helicopters, could draw the government into the fray GRAHAM MEGGITT/ROYAL NAVY/GETTY IMAGESGKN is exploring the option of selling its aerospace business to fend off more potential approaches after an unsolicited £7 billion offer for the engineering group last week. A number of US private equity firms and industrial rivals are thought to be running the rule over the aircraft and car parts maker now it is in play.
It turns out that monkeys have much to teach us about populism. Take research in 2003 which found that “monkeys reject unequal pay”. The primates in question were two brown capuchins kept in adjacent cages and rewarded with pieces of cucumber for passing stones to a handler. All was well until one monkey was more generously rewarded for the same task. As one got grapes, the other got angry — chucking away in disgust the cucumber it had been happy to eat and rattling the cage.
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".
