Much has been made about the challenges that Scotland might face as part of a ‘hard’ – or ‘clean’ – Brexit. Both SNP Members of Parliament in Westminster and their MSPs in the Scottish Parliament have been quick to signal discontent with any status outside the EU’s Internal (Single) Market or its Customs Union.
Brussels chiefs have leaped on mounting speculation about a second EU referendum to issue a fresh plea for Britain to reverse Brexit. In an intervention that infuriated Leavers, EU Council chief Donald Tusk insisted yesterday that there is still time for the UK to change its mind. He insisted the EU’s “hearts are still open” to a U-turn for the country to stay in the European Union.
A key Government priority in 2018 must be to build on our continued economic success following the referendum result by ensuring our services sector is an integral component to future trade deals, says Rory Broomfield. After the doom-mongers were proven wrong about the UK economy in 2017, the Government should take the initiative to make 2018 – and subsequent years – even better for Britain by incorporating the service sector within our trade deals.
Right now @leovaradker is praising the #EU - especially the European Council - for giving smaller nations 'a seat at the table'. I wonder if he realises that Juncker wants to merge the Council Presidency into the Commission... #EPStrasbourg
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".
