U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May right now cares more about the choreography of what happens next in Brexit negotiations than the kind of deal she’ll get when they end. The reason? May’s team knows she needs to promise European negotiators more money, but doesn’t trust them to follow through with the trade talks she wants, according to two people familiar with the situation. May has been here before, her officials believe.
European Union President Donald Tusk gave Theresa May 10 days to come up with a new offer on the Brexit divorce bill in order to break the deadlock in negotiations. Tusk set Dec. 4 as the absolute deadline for the U.K. to put a new offer on the table and also come up with a solution to the thorny issue of the Irish border after Brexit. May came away from talks hailing the positive atmosphere on both sides.
Prime Minister Theresa May meets European Union President Donald Tusk on Friday as the U.K. seeks guarantees that the bloc will allow stalled Brexit talks to make progress in exchange for new British assurances over money. Suspicions remain in London that the EU will simply bank any new promise from May and then demand more, without agreeing to move talks on to the trade deal that the U.K. wants, according to a person familiar with the matter.
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".
