Another week, and another set of numbers that send completely contradictory messages about the impact of Brexit on the City of London. This week the recruitment firm Robert Walters said the City had shrugged off concerns over Brexit and that hiring had "surged" 37% in July compared with last year. Meanwhile a rival firm, Morgan McKinley, published its own research saying recruitment had dropped by 11% over the same period...
Stamford’s recent population growth has brought new life and energy to the city, particularly in the South End and downtown where thousands of new residents have been drawn by newly constructed apartments and the ability to walk to places like restaurants, the grocery store or the train station. But these two neighborhoods remain disconnected from each other, bisected by the train tracks and Interstate 95, and accessible only by busy roads that were designed for cars and not people.
UK business leaders have welcomed a European court ruling which may pave the way for smoother EU trade talks ahead of Brexit. The European Court of Justice today ruled that an EU trade deal with Singapore will need to be ratified by all 38 national and regional parliaments in the union. However, the ECJ also this morning ruled that the EU has “exclusive competence” to ratify a trade deal in a number of areas, such as transport, labour and environmental standards.

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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
