Having liked the Samsung Gear S2’s bezel design, I was curious to see what would come next from the South Korean manufacturer in a smart watch market prone to hits and misses. Some months later I have my answer, with a device that has clear similarities to its predecessor but also a number of improvements. Gone is the smooth matte and minimalist exterior of the S2, replaced by something altogether chunkier.
For many companies, an established international competitor with deep pockets emerging in their home turf would be a death sentence. But for Maaz Sheikh, CEO of Dubai-based online video streaming service Starz Play, the effect has been quite the opposite. After launching its Middle East and North Africa (MENA) service in 2015 the firm has seen its fortunes pick up in part due to the entrance of established international platform Netflix, he argues from the firm’s office in Dubai Media City.
GCC and India real estate firm Sobha Group is planning a project in Oman and a potential push into another sector as part of its wider expansion plans, according to the company’s chairman. Speaking to Gulf Business, PNC Menon said the firm was putting plans on hold for a large-scale affordable housing project in Dubai he first mentioned last year to focus on other areas.
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".
