(Reuters) – Some boats are lifted a good bit higher than others, it seems, when it comes to the effects of quantitative easing. A Bank of England study, released last week, showed that its £325bn of bond purchases have disproportionately benefited the wealthiest, driving up the value of the assets they own.
March 13 (Reuters) - A game involving “moving candies to make a line of three in the same color” seems like an excellent basis for a $7.6 billion IPO to me. That game is ‘Candy Crush,’ which is the principal ornament and money maker of King Digital Entertainment, a Dublin-based company planning a share offering this month. Seems like they have really hit the sweet spot with Candy Crush. I mean two candies of the same color in a row, well that would just be stupid.
Dec 3 (Reuters) - Jeff Bezos’ plan to deliver Amazon.com packages by drone isn’t just an idea which skirts the line between satire and reality. It is also a neat little illustration of how technological innovation may be lowering overall investment returns. The online retailer is testing delivery by unmanned flying vehicle, Bezos, Amazon.com founder and CEO, told CBS TV show 60 Minutes on Sunday.
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".
