The U.S. Federal Reserve is widely expected to raise interest rates this week by 0.25 per cent, its third such move in 2017. This will be another step on the U.S.’s road to monetary policy normalization. The new year will see a change in leadership at the Fed, and strong economic conditions are part of the challenge for the central bank. We anticipate that global economic growth will continue in 2018 – albeit at a reduced pace.
DECIDED or leaning, if No is in your mind as you ponder your vote this week, I urge you to do me the privilege of reflecting on the next few hundred words. I will respect your final judgment, of course I shall. If you must vote No please, I urge you, do so for the best of reasons or you could regret your choice, very quickly and possibly forever. Some of my best friends will vote No with a cast-iron, near-religious certainty.
Canberra’s home auction market produced another overall satisfactory result for sellers at the weekend although clearance rates have struggled to exceed 70 per cent over recent weekends. Canberra recorded a clearance rate of 69.8 per cent on Saturday, which was higher than the 67.6 per cent reported the previous weekend but well down again on the 78.6 per cent recorded over the same weekend last year.
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".
