When your life is on the line, you’ve got to give it all you’ve got. No one wants to be in that awful position, including Norman Beck, whose Tedx talk Jeff Miller presents in his article, “An Inspirational Thanksgiving Lesson for Investors.”As is his way, Jeff distills key lessons from this short and worthwhile video. And as is mine, I will add my own thoughts.
A few technical tweaks in how a financial advisor manages retirement savings can result in rather substantial windfalls for the client, according to the latest article from the CFA Institute Contributors on Seeking Alpha, called “Three Tips for Evidence-Based Retirement Plans.” For example, the article’s author, Isaac Presley, CFA, has this to say about the importance of getting the account withdrawal order right (i.e., which accounts – taxable, tax-deferred or tax-free does one utilize first...
Investors tend to be an ambitious lot. So much of the discussion surrounding investing deals with “optimizing,” with not leaving any “money on the table.” This is nothing other than human nature in action. We all want things – and usually the most we can get of it. Seeking efficiency and not wasting are good things, but taken to their natural extreme, one arrives at the character trait of greed, which is generally understood (except, supposedly, on Wall Street) as a negative attribute.
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".
