Employers puzzled by pay gaps should be asking a different question, says one observer at the Financial Times. LONDON: Is the gender pay gap caused by discrimination, or the different choices men and women make in the labour market? Unless you are at either extreme end of this debate, you are unlikely to think it is wholly one thing or the other. But the truth is that we are in the dark about where the balance lies. No wonder that policymakers across the world are reaching for their flashlights.
La semana pasada hablé con un mensajero de una empresa del sector de la economía colaborativa que recibió un email en el que le informaban de que su "contrato de servicios" terminaba porque no había aceptado suficientes encargos de reparto. En su defensa les dijo que la aplicación no funcionaba bien y cuando sus protestas no recibieron respuesta, pidió ayuda al sindicato de los trabajadores de la economía colaborativa, el Sindicato Independiente de Reino Unido.
Devon Live’s film reviewer Sarah O’Connor went to see Geostorm – the American science fiction disaster film starring Gerard Butler. And it’s fair to say, she didn’t think too much of it…It is hard to imagine who thought it would be a good idea to open a movie whose main theme is the devastation caused a weather disaster, just days after some of the most deadly storms in history killed so many people, but it is debatable which is the bigger crime – the timing of the release or the film itself.
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".
