“Boomerang” kids returning home? Get ready for stress and dissatisfaction. Adult children moving back with their parents is so common a phenomenon that it’s inspired Hollywood movies (witness Failure to Launch with Matthew McConaughey). Credit the financial crisis and the slow economic recovery that has followed. One in nine parents surveyed by Fidelity and Stanford University’s Center on Longevity said their offspring had returned “to the nest” in the last year.
New research from the Pew Charitable Trusts shows that small- to medium-sized businesses — those with five to 250 employees — are least likely to offer retirement-savings plans. Just over half — 53 percent —of the small and midsize American employers surveyed offer a retirement plan to workers, Pew said in a report released this week.
These are good times at Vanguard. Its 2017 Partnership Plan dividends will likely rise 15 percent from last year, according to Dan Wiener, editor of the Independent Adviser for Vanguard Investors. Since the top executives earn the bulk of their compensation from the Partnership Plan, that amounts to a significant raise for a lot of local folks. Based partly on assets under management — and Vanguard now manages a record $4 trillion in assets — the Partnership Plan pays out millions each year.
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".
