Surrounded by top steel executives in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump gave a speech in April that painted a grim picture of the U.S. steel industry. For decades, he said, American steel companies have been under siege from foreign competitors “who have made a living off taking advantage” of lax trade laws, flooding the U.S. with cheap steel and leading to shuttered mills and widespread layoffs. The reality for the industry isn’t quite so dire.
Chief executive officers of America’s largest steelmakers said global overcapacity of the metal is at crisis levels as they urged the U.S. to determine that cheap steel imports are a threat to national security. Speaking at a public hearing into the impact of steel imports, CEOs including Nucor Corp.’s John Ferriola and AK Steel Holding Corp.’s Roger Newport said the U.S. must build up defenses against a flood of production from China and other nations that offer state support to the industry.
The economic woes sparking turmoil for global equities is a boon for gold, with prices trading above US$1,200 an ounce for the first time since June. Spot bullion climbed as much as 2.3 percent, the biggest intraday gain in two months. Shares of precious-metal producers surged. The 30-company Philadelphia Stock Exchange Gold & Silver Index of shares rose as much as 6.2 percent. Newmont Mining Corp. was the third-biggest gainer among stocks tracked by the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index.
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".
