- Many of you know that your credit card often carries rental car insurance, but each card can provide a little bit different service. Wallet Hub, a finance site, really crunched the data here on this. Fifty-seven percent of credit card rental car insurance doesn't cover all rim or tire damage. Nearly 62 percent will cover your vehicle for 30-plus days. And more than 17 percent penalize you for damage from gravel or unpaved roads.
- If you have a child heading off to college this Fall, you - the parents - have some summer homework yourselves. I know many of you think of your upcoming college freshman as a baby in some way. But, mom and dad, they're about to live on their own and to make their own day-to-day decisions. So let's work on 4 THINGS to get them more financially fit by doling out more responsibility. First, if they don't have a , well then, it's time. Yes.
- Saving for your future is for every age. But as you get closer to retirement, strategies change. I talk to a money manager who says you need a plan in your 50s because it's different than the one you needed in your 20s. Fifty is that much closer to retirement. But it's also that much closer to living off of what you've saved. Talking about retirement seems like such a far away notion, then suddenly it isn't. Let Lisa Brown, a certified financial planner, wake you up.
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".
