Your twenties, particularly after college as you’re settling into a career, are a great time to match your money to your values, says certified financial planner Sophia Bera of Gen Y Planning. "(It's) a really good time to check in on your finances and see if there are tweaks that you can make so that you can use your money to match your values to make a great life," Bera said. It’s not so much about the kinds of things you buy (like too much avocado toast instead of a house).
If you grew up in a small town, you might remember coming home after school as a teen with nothing to do. Developing plans for a new hiking trail with designers and town leaders? Maybe not, but that’s exactly what teens in Hurley, Wisconsin, are doing under the leadership of Neil Klemme, 4-H Youth Development educator department head for the University of Wisconsin-Extension Iron County.
Congress let funding expire over the weekend for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, a program that helps millions of low- and moderate-income families afford health insurance. The funding lapse is in part because of Congress' focus on repealing the Affordable Care Act, meaning other legislative priorities — like funding CHIP — were pushed aside. Wisconsin's former Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson says health care has unnecessarily become a partisan issue.
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".
