Prices for used cars have reached record highs recently fueled by a boom of returned leased vehicles in good condition that are now up for sale, according to Edmunds. With a healthy demand and good supply, Ivan Drury, senior manager of industry analysis at the auto site, says he expects this trend to continue as lease-rates remain high, around 30%. With the surge in supply of these two- to three-year-old cars, you could drive off with a great deal.
With more than 143 million people affected by the recent Equifax data breach, there’s been a lot of talk about credit scores. But did you know that you have not just one, two, three — or even ten different credit scores? It’s true. Most people have a whopping 70 different scores. Today, I’ll explain why there so many versions and which ones matter most. But first, let’s back up a second. Why should you even care about your credit score?
Going off to college was one of the most exciting times of my life. Not only was I leaving behind years of studying for the SATs, and countless hours applying to colleges and scholarships, but I’d finally get to discover the world on my own and do as I please. But looking back, I wasn’t quite ready to be a grown up, especially when it came to handling my finances. Needless to say, there’s a lot I wish I knew about money before I was on my own for the first time.
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".
