Michael Lewis isn’t buying bitcoin, but he’s not selling what he has, either. The author of the best-selling books behind hit movies like “The Big Short,” “The Blindside,” and “Moneyball” says he owns $378 worth of the crypto asset. Lewis started with $5 worth of bitcoin that he was gifted as part of research a few years ago, when he thought he might want to write about bitcoin. “I just wanted to understand it,” Lewis says.
If I need cash, there’s one sure bet in my house: my kids’ piggy banks. Thanks to the tooth fairy, birthday presents and allowances, they are stuffed with wads of crinkled bills instead of loose change. Sometimes the kids actually remember to bring money with them to the movies or on a trip, but half the time it’s not enough and the other half they lose it.
I bought gold for the first time this year. Not a gold ETF like GLD or a gold miner stock like Barrick (ABX), but actual physical gold. I had a limited budget, but wanted it as a diversification and a small hedge against the coming zombie apocalypse or market crash, take your pick. Jim Rickards, noted gold bug and author of numerous books on gold, including “The New Case for Gold,” recommended I buy American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins.
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".
