Do I hear 26,000? Yes, 26,000 here. The Dow Jones industrial average passed another thousand-point milestone on Wednesday — closing above 26,000 for the first time just eight trading days after first closing above 25,000. That means the Dow climbed 1 percent every two days in frantic bidding — marking the fastest 1,000-point sprint ever. Under President Trump, the stock market’s euphoria seems endless. The Dow is up 42.5 percent since Trump was elected.
A new study shows that 59 percent of parents have a child living with them for more than a year after the kid turns 18. Not surprising. One in five parents (23 percent) has an adult child living in the same household for more than five years. On average, the adult children are hanging around for 4 ¹/₂ years. Here’s the punch line. According to this study, conducted by NerdWallet, about a quarter of the parents expect their children to help them financially when they retire.
The Federal Reserve said last week that Americans’ outstanding debt hit a record level in November. And judging from anecdotal evidence provided by retailers, December probably had a pretty good follow-through. Revolving credit, which is mostly credit card debt, jumped by $11.2 billion, to $1.023 trillion. That went past the previous record set in April 2008. You remember 2008, don’t you? That’s when all the trouble began.
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".
