Did Leave "win"? Sure. Why not? The Leave half of the ballot secured the simple majority that was, almost uniquely in modern constitutional history, apparently required. Parliament is, we must concede, so advised.
Voting day. Normally of course I don't vote, but today is different. Today I will be voting Remain, because there is no Leave to vote for. There is just a grubby party-political struggle, which has been mismanaged to the point of geopolitical crisis.
I love the trilogy. Love it. As a child I saw Episode 4 easily 100 times - a friend and I watched it every day we spent together, and we got together to watch it occasionally even after he moved to another town.
@vigornian Schools aren't purposed for a direct revenue return. (Even the private ones are configured as charities.) They produce education, for a cost, which in any sensible accounting would be written off as incurred.
@vigornian In the same way that a bridge or a cream bun or a tulip cannot run at a loss. It's a mismatching of concepts. Sure, you can attach a nominal P/L account to anything and call it loss-making, but if its purpose is neither to make nor lose money the account is meaningless
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".
