This weekend saw The Russian State Ballet of Siberia make a very welcome return to the Grand Theatre Blackpool as part of their 2017/18 tour. This year’s offerings were The Snow Maiden, The Nutcracker and Swan Lake. I was fortunate enough to be present at the performance of the ever popular Tchaikovky’s Swan Lake. Internationally acclaimed as the greatest romantic ballet ever written, Swan Lake tells the story of Prince Siegfried and his discovery of and ensuing love for Odette.
LONDON (ICIS)--Greater volatility could be in store for Europe’s methanol market and prices in 2018, a trend which is both feared and relished by different players on the scene. Halfway through last year, some were expecting the relative calm of mid-2017 to continue to dominate. New methanol supplies were due to come onstream across the globe in late 2017 and take the sting out of seesaw pricing driven by China’s chop-and-change consumption.
LONDON (ICIS)--A futures contract for the European methanol market could launch as early as March, a Russian methanol trader who is involved in the process said on Tuesday. Metadynea Trading, a Swiss supply and distribution business whose parent company is Russian methanol producer Metafrax, is actively preparing for the launch of this contract, its trading manager Vasily Mikhaylov told ICIS.
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".
