"Cash is king," goes the old adage. However, does that philosophy ring true when buying a home? Here’s a look at some of the pros and cons. 1. You’re a more attractive buyer. A seller who knows that you don’t plan to apply for a mortgage is likely to take you more seriously.
As the boomer generation begins to fret about aging, many of us seem obsessed with one sign in particular: the blips we sometimes experience in remembering names. Never mind that a lot of us weren’t any good with names even in our teens or 20s — forgetting one now is enough to send you to the brain-imaging lab. Happily, I can still recall the names of all four Beatles, all four Monkees and at least one member of The Dave Clark Five, which is all anybody ever knew anyway.
On a clear March day in 1921, an Army Air Service plane took off from a military airfield in Washington, D.C. Aboard were two men: the pilot and a lone passenger, 22-year-old Henry A. Renz, Jr.A veteran of the First World War, Renz had lost his voice eight months earlier, possibly as a complication of a war injury. To restore his speech, doctors had tried everything, including removing his tonsils and adenoids, with no success.
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".
