Some people are O.K. with paying more for a meal if it means they don't have to leave a tip.According to a new survey, 43 percent of people want to eliminate tipping in favor of higher menu prices. Not everyone agrees. The same survey shows 33 percent of people hate the idea. "I would rather leave the tip because it's going to the workers instead of the restaurant as a whole," said Claire Kinas, who lives near Marquette University. Denise Maltra said you get what you pay for.
Sorry, deal hunters but in 2018 you'll likely see price increases that will hurt your pocketbook, starting with airfare.If you're planning a vacation, the Global Business Travel Association predicts the price to fly will go up nearly 4 percent this year.

Extreme weather in places like Italy, France, and California, means grape harvests in 2018 could be the worst they've been in decades.
CEDARBURG -- Seven students at Cedarburg High School are skipping school Thursday and Friday to compete in an international robotics competition at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The students are competing at the Zero Robotics Competition -- where high school students program satellites on board the International Space Station. “That's the crazy part to me. We went from basically nothing to going to MIT and watching our code run on the ISS. It's totally crazy to me,” said Brandon Lusk.
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".
