The outlook for Jamie Oliver and his troubled restaurant empire may improve after a programme of closures and cutsJamie Oliver is to underwrite a debt-for-equity swap at his stuttering restaurant empire as part of a wider restructuring aimed at stabilising the business. Short-term loans totalling £5 million will be converted to equity by means of a pre-emptive rights issue. If minority shareholders opt not to take up their rights, Oliver would lift his stake from 73 per cent to 99 per cent.
Going shopping with the Competition and Markets Authority is always a blast. Only last year, the wonks put Widnes on the map — and all for its convenience store experience. They spotted that the Co-op was buying a single shop in the famous Cheshire town: one of eight stores threatened with closure acquired out of administration. No way was the CMA going to allow that sort of malarkey in Widnes, of all places.
Everyone can see Ultra Electronics is a specialist in “advanced underwater systems”. How else would the defence group ever locate the share price — down another 19 per cent to £12.30 after a particularly impressive plunge. But what about some of Ultra’s other claims to fame? Such as being “a world-leading supplier of secure communication equipment”. Apparently, Ultra’s kit enables “timely exchange of voice, video and data” with all sorts of customers: military, government, law enforcers.
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".
