As pressures mount on operators, their relationships with landlords are becoming increasingly important. But, are both sides speaking the same language? David Abramson, chief executive of leisure property consultant Cedar Dean, discusses for MCA Insight. Over the past few weeks we have seen the execution of two CVAs for big names in the restaurant world. Both Jamie’s Italian and Byron have been left with multiple vacant units, and Prezzo set for the same.
Shekha and Jack put another London based Drake and Morgan to the test. Is the chain really as consistent as it threatens to be? Yes, looks like they’ve got this thing down to a science…Party planners, more city workers – people planning parties for city workers. Couples who might be city workers, or might not. Pub/bar crawl planners. People who ‘do brunch’ in the soft reflection of glass and concrete.
Shekha and Jack head down to Drake and Morgan’s recently opened City hotspot – can it survive what must be one of the most competitive places for a watering hole in the capital? Probably…City workers – down from their high towers, cocktail drinkers (basically the premise of Drake and Morgan).
@Hermesparcels just spent an hour looking for this in my office building. Can you please remind your couriers NOT to lie and say "in reception"if they've just dumped parcels by the front door, thanks. https://t.co/awbNa8Fq8Z
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".
