The Federal Reserve’s concerns about inflation, and its push to raise rates, are somewhat surprising, according to a leading bond manager. With the unemployment rate at 4.3 percent—the lowest rate since 1999—and evidence of recent wage growth, the Fed is engaging in some “preventative medicine,” said Philip Barach, president and co-founder of DoubleLine Capital, on a conference call Tuesday.
After a lull in growth last year, Schwab’s RIA firms are now back in gear, said Charles Schwab chief executive Walt Bettinger in a call Friday with analysts discussing the company’s financial results, released earlier this week. RIA firms brought in near-record net new assets of $49.5 billion in the first half, a 77 percent year-over-year increase. For the second quarter, RIAs affiliated with Schwab added $24.6 billion in net new assets, up 108 percent from a year ago.
There’s a lot of excitement buzzing around the Internet of Things (IoT) these days. And while much of it is deserved, sometimes that excitement has gotten ahead of understanding. As a result, the emerging IoT industry has been rife with the kinds of miscalculations and misapplications that so often plague early adoption. But as the field of IoT moves past its infancy, certain trends and economic realities are becoming clear.
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".
