Our guest for this episode was Erica Grieder, a journalist and author of Big, Hot, Cheap, and Right: What America Can Learn from the Strange Genius of Texas. The state of Texas is often stereotyped and thus easily misunderstood. But its economic model — low taxes, light regulation, not much spending on public services — appears to have worked quite well for it.
You know the type. The relative or friend so congenitally pessimistic that good news unsettles him, as if he would prefer that a bad outcome justify his cynicism rather than embrace a happy surprise. The central banks of advanced economies are stuck in such a mindset. For the past 18 months they have witnessed economic growth with little inflation, and jobs growth with only modestly rising wages.
MMA heavyweights' striking often looks* so cumbersome and/or un-technical that it's like they're fighting inside a vat of viscous liquid (with the obvious exceptions of Stipe and younger versions of Cane and JDS) #UFCSydney
* How it looks =/= how it is
I've got Clark 30-27 at #UFCSydney -- superior technically, impressively unbothered by Rawlings's early aggression. Between-fight recommended reading is The Economist on Scandinavian super-rich tax avoidance https://t.co/M0UDQ6jd7s
I mean, I hope to spend basically all of my retirement reading and talking about great books while sipping Scotch. Hell, that's all I ever wanna do *now*. And occasionally watch a night of MMA fights, but really that's it
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".
