Whenever bitcoin comes up in conversation, like many otherwise educated people, I say the same thing: “I doubt its viability as a currency, but the blockchain technology might be a game changer.”I reckon this is the go-to line for everyone who wants to seem smart but doesn’t understand Bitcoin. Take, for example, JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon. Today (Jan. 9) he told Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business he took back his statement from September that bitcoin is a fraud that would end in tears.

By Kevin O’Neil at the Rockefeller FoundationBy Allison Schrager and Amy X. Wang at Quartz3. Scientists are working on a robotic arm that feels. That could change lives. 5. How increasing paid parental leave would help the economy.
The new year is a time to take stock of your life and make resolutions to behave better: eat less, exercise more, be a better partner, or a more present parent. Sticking with these resolutions is hard. But for most people, even those horrible exercise classes and bland diets are more fun than reassessing how to manage their money, especially after a spell of heavy holiday shopping. Getting our financial houses in order should be high on every list of resolutions.
wish for 2018: journalists stop qualifying economic arguments with the perceived political affiliation of the economist (esp when economist quoted never worked for an administration). degrades research and the profession. https://t.co/nNoYVrM7dG
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".
