The biggest wealth transfer in the history of the U.S. has begun. Over the next few decades, baby boomers - the largest and wealthiest generation ever - will pass on nearly $30 trillion in assets to their Generation X and millennial children. More than 10 percent of that amount will change hands over the next decade, creating a whole new class of millionaires, according to a report from insurance broker NFP. It is not known how much of that wealth will be transferred in a graying Delaware.
Chemours said it will immediately halt dumping an unregulated toxic chemical into a North Carolina river. The Wilmington, Delaware company with about 1,000 workers in its home state, has come under fire over the past week for releasing GenX into the Cape Fear River near its Fayetteville, North Carolina plant. Starting immediately, Chemours will take steps to capture and remove the substance from the Cape Fear River and dispose of it, the company said in a news release.
When Sidney "Sid" Balick III passed away last month at 85, his son, Adam, received condolences from some of the biggest names in Delaware. Gov. John Carney and his predecessor, Jack Markell, U.S. senators and even former Vice President Joe Biden all celebrated the life of a man they credit with influencing their careers. But it is a collection of sympathy notes from multiple Delaware lawyers -- largely unknown to the public -- that means as much, if not more, to Adam.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
