Plans for a trio of real estate projects worth Dh2.7 billion (US$734 million) to be built in Sharjah were unveiled by the emirate's ruler on Tuesday, as it looks to develop its retail and tourism industries in competition with Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The three projects are the first to be developed by Eagle Hills Sharjah Development, a partnership between the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and Abu Dhabi-based real estate developer Eagle Hills.
The collapse of Carillion, the UK's second-largest construction company, is unlikely to significantly impact its interests and the projects in the UAE, according to people familiar with the matter, even as the firm's collapse threatens to significantly impact the UK's economy. The construction firm, which employs 43,000 people globally, including 20,000 in the UK, went into liquidation on Monday after banks refused to provide any further financial support.
Abu Dhabi Financial Group, an alternative investment company with around US$6 billion in assets, has set up new headquarters in Abu Dhabi Global Market, the emirate’s financial free zone on Al Maryah Island, as part of expansion plans, it said on Sunday. “ADGM offers us a strategic location and the certainty of a professional environment benchmarked against globally recognised standards,” said Jassim Alseddiqi, chief executive of ADFG.
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".
