Being a politician — whether a president, governor, or senator — can’t be easy. You’re always in the spotlight — your words and actions forever documented for all to see. And even if you make the right decision for your constituency, you’re still going to make some people upset. It’s almost a no-win situation, which begs the question of why people bother running for public office at all. In the case of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, his overwhelming unpopularity is well-deserved. Closing beaches.
Planning for retirement is a lot of things, and stress-free probably isn’t one of them. So much planning and so many factors go into forming a successful retirement that it’s hard not to lose sleep because of it. Contributing to a 401(k) or Roth IRA is a good start. But a study by TIAA-CREF shows a third of people aren’t aware of their retirement investing options. Making mistakes on your way to retirement could force you to rearrange your plans, but those mistakes don’t have to be catastrophic.
Car insurance: Odds are you have it, probably think you pay too much for it, and don’t really know what to believe when it comes to your policy. One thing we all know is we have to keep paying those premiums if we want to legally stay on the road. Several factors determine exactly how much you pay for your insurance.
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".
