BELFAST—Ireland has emerged as an unexpectedly tough hurdle to advancing stalled Brexit talks next month, prompting Dublin to warn that Britain isn’t doing enough to prevent the return of customs checks on the island and could potentially reignite sectarian violence. Republic of Ireland officials fear that Britain’s decision to leave the European Union, slated for March 2019, will cleve Irish business links and social ties that have deepened since the end of violence almost two decades ago....
BRUSSELS—European Union governments voted Monday to move the bloc’s equivalent of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to Amsterdam, one of the first formal decisions taken as a result of Brexit. The decision was taken after Milan and Amsterdam tied in the final round of voting with 13 votes each. One country abstained. Lots were drawn to pick which of the two bids would win the agency, officials said. The...
BRUSSELS—Catalonia’s former leader Carles Puigdemont on Sunday turned himself in to Belgian authorities, after Spain on Friday requested his extradition.

Northern Ireland local official: “If a border re-emerges, some young people in our community will be for the U.K., others will be for a United Ireland and they will blame each other. This will create a problem where we didn’t have one.” #brexithttps://t.co/voUuGuVplg
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".
