Brazil's 14th oil and natural gas exploration and production rights auction set a financial record for the country's recession-battered Treasury, but it did little to realise government hopes of getting new investors to jump-start its once booming oil industry. The 3.8bn reais ($1.2bn) raised from winning bids was the largest local-currency haul (but not in US dollars) in two decades of auctions and the government was quick to declare victory.
The speed and complexity of the modern marketplace is the domain of intellectual agility. Top sales professionals (ultra-high performers) possess four types of intelligence that are tightly intertwined – each connecting, affecting, and amplifying the others. Ultra-high performers combine high IQ, AQ, and TQ with high EQ to dominate their competitors. Your intelligence quotient (IQ) is an indicator of how smart you are. Innate intelligence is baked into your DNA.

Sorry, but time to focus on defict/debt was before passing debt/deficit-busting tax-cuts for rich while demanding border wall boondoggles & blank-check military-spending increases. Good or bad, town halls, summer jobs are irrelevant fiscal peanuts beside tax-bill budget insanity. https://twitter.com/nkorotash/status/954610713036664834
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".
