Brookfield Asset Management Inc. convinced a Delaware judge to throw out a lawsuit that accused it of taking Rouse Properties Inc. off the public market through a “fatally conflicted” process. Brookfield’s 34 percent ownership in Rouse at the time of the deal can’t be treated as a controlling stake, meaning the Toronto-based firm didn’t have, or breach, any fiduciary duty to Rouse’s shareholders, Chancery Court Judge Joseph Slights wrote in a March 9 opinion.
UnitedHealth Group Inc. shareholders can scour 12 years of the insurer’s records to support claims that its directors played a part in an alleged Medicare fraud perpetrated by the company, a Delaware judge decided. The investors—two pension funds and one bank—filed suit in 2017 after UnitedHealth rejected their initial requests for the information, which relates to an ongoing federal lawsuit accusing the company of filing thousands of false Medicare claims.
Could Wall Street firms such as Apollo Global Management LLC and Carlyle Group LP really have some of the smallest pay gaps between their CEOs and average workers? That’s the question that has some consumer and worker advocates raising their eyebrows as reports required by the Securities and Exchange Commission disclose for the first time how much CEOs make compared with median workers.
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".
