Fan Plan needed to sell enough plans for teams that would fall by the wayside during the season while keeping enough holders in the game to make it interesting. Halfway through the football season, TCU was considered to be one of 15 teams still in the hunt. But Fan Plan’s index factored in the Horned Frogs’ tough upcoming schedule and priced TCU’s plan at the $20 minimum. One hundred Froggies thought they knew better than the computer. “We were a little nervous on that one,” Leiweke says.
Ross Perot Jr. , chairman of Hillwood, says D-FW has two huge factors that should put us in the win column. Number One: “We are the population center of North America, which is one big trading block. It very easy for your team to move through all of the markets -- three hours to the West Coast, three hours to the East Coast, a couple of hours from Mexico, two or three hours to Canada. For a global business like Amazon, which is in the logistics, retail business, we're the perfect spot."
Legendary oilman T. Boone Pickens is hanging up the hedge-fund spurs he's worn for the past two decades as his health declines. The 89-year-old founder of Dallas-based BP Capital Management says he's not heading into the sunset -- not quite yet -- but that it's high time to get his affairs in order. "It's no secret the past year has not been good to me, from a health perspective or a financial one," Pickens says.
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".
