Investors who bought cryptocurrencies early on faced plenty of doubters, but today they’re laughing all the way to the bank. The price of bitcoin has had plenty of ups and downs during its turbulent history, but if you bought and held $1,000 worth of the currency five years ago and sold it on Monday, you would have about $374,000 today.
Canadian incomes grew at a real rate of 10.8 per cent between 2005 and 2015, modest gains that economists say were held back by the financial crisis, recession and more recent collapse in oil prices. According to a Statistics Canada release based on census data, the Canadian median household income increased from the inflation-adjusted equivalent of $63,457 in 2005 to $70,336 in 2015. That’s real wage growth of a little more than one per cent per year.
Citing “weak guidance” from regulators, Waterloo-based messaging app Kik Interactive Inc. has banned Canadians from participating in a public sale of its new crypto-token. In a blog post published Thursday evening, Kik chief executive Ted Livingston said the company has reached out to the Ontario Securities Commission, but did not receive a clear answer as to whether or not securities law will apply to the token sale.
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".
