The chairman of the House Financial Services Committee is pressing – so far unsuccessfully – to force Richard Cordray, director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to declare whether Cordray will serve out his term at the CFPB or resign soon for a possible run for Ohio governor. The chairman, U.S Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), is a determined foe of the CFPB in general and Cordray in particular. Cordray is a former Ohio state attorney general.
Banks are pulling back on making auto loans to customers with subprime credit, in response to an ongoing increase in delinquencies. Auto loans that were 90 or more days delinquent – and therefore likely to be written off – accounted for 3.92 percent of the total amount outstanding for the second quarter of 2017, up from 3.46 percent a year earlier, according to the New York Federal Reserve's Quarterly Report on Household Debt and Credit.
Auto suppliers are bracing themselves for “inventory correction,” as automakers keep a lid on production in the second half of the year to reduce inventories of unsold cars. That causes some short-term pain to the suppliers, but in the long run that’s healthier and more profitable for the automakers than slashing prices on new cars or pumping cars into rent-a-car fleets – the traditional ways car companies work off excess inventory.
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".
