Missouri's minimum wage will rise by 15 cents next year to $7.85 an hour, state officials announced Monday.The increase, as predicted in this space three months ago, is based on inflation between July 2016 and July 2017. It's the biggest raise for the state's minimum-wage workers since a similar 15-cent increase in 2015. Missouri's minimum wage didn't change last year and rose by a nickel this year.
When Emerson raised its bid for Rockwell Automation early Thursday, the timing was no accident.Rockwell was showing off its technology at an automation fair in Houston, and top executives were scheduled to meet investment analysts at 1 p.m. Their upbeat prepared remarks focused on things like Rockwell’s “above-market revenue growth” and “success in smart manufacturing.”Emerson gave everyone something else to talk about.
Your home may be your castle, but it’s also probably your biggest tax shelter.That may change if Republicans push through either the House or Senate version of their tax bill. By nearly doubling the standard deduction — to $24,000 for a married couple — both bills would make itemizing a thing of the past for all but roughly 5 percent of taxpayers.The change would probably cut most folks’ taxes, but it’s a big departure from a century of using the tax code to encourage homeownership.
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".
