If you’re surprised to see them at the top of Bankrate’s ranking of best and worst cities for retirement, don’t be. Places that might offer seniors the best standard of living may look a lot different from our traditional sun-and-golf idea of retirement havens.
Refinance rates were mixed, but one key rate receded. The average rate nationwide for a 30-year fixed-rate refinance fell, but the average rate on a 15-year fixed cruised higher. The average rate on 10-year fixed refis, meanwhile, climbed. Rates for refinancing change daily, but they continue to represent a bargain compared to rates before the Great Recession. If you’re in the market to refinance, it could make sense to lock if you see a rate you like. Compare refinancing rates in your area now.
If you want the best earnings and job prospects after college, majoring in one of these subjects is a good start. To find the most valuable college majors, Bankrate used data from the U.S. Census 2011-2015 American Community Survey. We determined the median income for bachelor’s degree holders in each major, and the unemployment rate among those same graduates. These degrees can bring more money for saving, investing and achieving overall financial well-being.
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".
