A decade has passed since the housing bubble burst, and it has been a slow, painful recovery from the Great Recession that followed. Many Americans have not recovered at all. American homeowners bore much of the brunt of the recession: seven million of them lost their homes, most never to return. Today, despite booming real estate markets in some cities, millions of homeowners are still heavily at risk.
“American healthcare is broken,” according to Tim Shively, a pediatric anesthesiologist who does contract work for the federal government. “Both sides of the aisle just can’t agree on what would be best for the nation, and there are too many moneyed interests who want to keep things the way they are.”The facts support Shively’s negative prognosis: at the end of 2016, over 28 million Americans remained uninsured, and this number may be increasing. Many more Americans are underinsured.
The U.S. housing boom in the early part of the aughts was prelude to the crash at the end of that decade. Foreclosure rates rose 81%, according to the 2008 year end report issued by RealtyTrac. Today, with time and distance between then and now, we see a much different picture. Earlier this year, in their August Mortgage Monitor report, Black Knight Financial Services reported that foreclosure inventory hit a 10-year low. The decline in the foreclosure rate can be attributed to a number of factors.
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".
