The Federal Reserve has fined the French bank BNP Paribas $246 million for not monitoring bankers who manipulate foreign exchange markets. It’s the latest in a string of fines issued for currency price fixing. Traders who knew that they were about to place a large exchange between currencies would go into exclusive online chatrooms and give traders at other banks a heads-up. Knowing which currencies were about to go up or down made it easy to collect a quick profit.
There is a warehouse shortage on Long Island. The reason is e-commerce. The shift in how consumers are spending money is having lots of unforeseen consequences for local communities, from zoning to how police departments are funded. Marko Glavadanovic, a commercial real estate broker in Huntington, New York, shows off a warehouse that he admits is pretty rundown.
Jury selection has begun for the pharmaceutical businessman Martin Shkreli. He is defending charges that he stole money from one of his companies to cover the lies that he made to investors of another company he owns. Despite a possible 20 years in prison, Shkreli has not kept quiet. Shkerli’s notoriety stems from raising the price of a lifesaving medicine by 5,000 percent – also harassing journalists, provoking conspiracy theories, and flaunting expensive purchases.
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".
