A new controversial way of raising funds with less regulation has captivated the attention of investors, it's called an initial coin offering, or ICO. An ICO is a fundraising vehicle, typically for start-ups. Investors send some form of currency, usually bitcoin or ethereum, to the company. In exchange, they get an entirely new cryptocurrency. But before you bet your retirement on the next initial coin offering, beware of the risks. First is you'll have fewer rights.
The U.S. economy created 156,000 jobs in August, falling short of the 180,000 number economists expected, while the unemployment rate edged higher to 4.4 percent. Despite the miss, markets were higher at the open on Friday, and according to hedge fund analytics tool Kensho, stocks could rally through the month of September.
After a roughly 36-hour journey, a SpaceX Dragon capsule docked at the International Space Station this week, delivering over 3 tons of supplies. Over the past year, Kensho's space index has also soared, up over 27 percent in a period where the S&P 500 gained 12.5 percent. The companies in the Kensho space index design and build rockets, satellites, launch vehicles and their systems.
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".
