QUESTION: What will the market do now? Moisand: Given the behavior of the market recently, I suspect a lot of people are asking that these days, Tim. I do not know what the market will do, I’ve never known, and I believe if anyone tells you they do know they are trying to dupe you or they are fooling themselves. It is a tricky proposition to move money around based on one’s theory about what the market is going to do next.
Q. Due to a transfer, I will be selling my home this year. My neighbor says that because I’ve only lived in it for four years, the new tax law says I’ll have to pay taxes on the sale. Is that capital gains or regular taxes? A. Sam, you probably won’t pay any income related taxes upon sale of your home. The final law made no changes to how primary residences are taxed upon sale.
Paying for the college education of a child or grandchild is one of the most common goals of families. There are several ways to fund this effort, but one of the most popular is a 529 college savings plan. Prepaid college tuition plans are simple but not very flexible. Putting money into a regular savings account maximizes flexibility but offers no tax advantage. 529 savings plans by contrast offer both considerable flexibility and tax advantages.
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".
