Today the nation awoke to news of Jack Duckworth's departure from Coronation Street. Shares in Newton and Ridley may never recover. Actor Bill Tarmey will exit after the 50th anniversary in December – so is Jack set to join his little swamp duck Vera in that great Red Rec in the sky? And will we ever see Little Tommy again? Those of us who call into Weatherfield several times a week knew the end was near when Jack moved out of No 9 last year. Disappearing to Blackpool for months on end was one thing.
These should be exciting times for finance graduates: tougher regulations and new reporting standards are being written to prevent another global financial crisis; the emergence of new fintech challengers is reshaping the sector as cutting-edge technology disrupts everything from trading floors to payment systems; and the recent WannaCry ransomware was a reminder that cyber security will remain a high priority.
Every organisation worth its salt wants to attract and retain the best staff, but the reality of the current economic climate means few employers are able to offer the generous salaries, company cars and perks they once could. And, at the same time, a growing number of employers are recognising the correlation between happy and healthy employees, satisfied customers and business results. They are discovering the bottom-line benefits of keeping staff healthy.
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".
