One look at my Instagram is all you need to see that I love exotic cars. Especially Lamborghini. But, while they’re intoxicatingly fast and a blast to drive, the prices tend to scare away most people. That sticker shock is usually where the story ends, but as you’ll soon see, there’s numerous clever methods savvy car buyers use to save. This is something I’ve always been interested in - since as long as I’ve had an interest in cars actually - so I decided to seek out an expert for some help.
Millennials are frequently portrayed as self-consumed and frivolous, but the reality is actually far from it. The bulk of our generation is entering the realm of parenthood and along with that comes family quality time, time often spent traveling. According to millennial parents 52% say they are doing a very good job as a parent, compared with 43% of Gen X parents and 41% of Boomer parents.
John Willard "Bill" Marriott Jr. is the executive chairman of Marriott International. Although it started as his family's root beer stand, Bill grew it into the world's largest hotel company, with more than 6,000 hotels in 120 countries and a $38 billion market cap. Over his 60-year career, he helped turn Marriott into a global name brand. Starting as just a family business, Marriott has since grown to over 225,000 employees, and with that many people under his tutelage, few know leadership better.
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".
