Are things better than they seem, or worse? It’s an age-old question, maybe, but we don’t seem to be getting much better at agreeing on an answer. This is particularly clear when you consider stock markets. Let’s accept, for the moment, that they represent some kind of collective bet on the future: what are they telling us? The answer matters, because it’s far better to buy into under-optimistic markets than under-pessimistic ones, right? Yet there are mixed signals everywhere.
August 31, 20176:27 PM EDT Jennifer Stranzl’s contract as chief marketing advisor, which was never publicly disclosed, could cast a shadow over her husband’s reputation as he struggles to save the ailing retailer The economy is growing at the fastest pace in 15 years and that has some analysts changing their calls for a Bank of Canada hike from October to next week All six Canadian big banks exceeded expectations, but TD rose above the rest on its strong retail performance So what does this...
Maybe Donald Trump wasn’t threatening nuclear holocaust when he said North Korea could expect a rain of “fire and fury” if it didn’t stop threatening the U.S. Maybe he was referring to conventional military options, which can bring fire and fury enough. But, in the context, that seems unlikely. Trump made his declaration (from the banal confines of a New Jersey golf resort) in response to news the hermit state had developed missile-ready nuclear warheads.
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".
