P2P Investing 101, by Stu Lustman of P2PLendingExpert.com, suggests that investors should be diversifying into “alternative assets,” particularly peer-to-peer aka marketplace lending. The book is aimed at both beginners and more experienced investors who may not have explored this asset class before. P2P Investing 101’s greatest strength is its accessibility and the sheer amount of useful information Lustman provides.
Almost everyone agrees that the Great Recession was triggered largely by the U.S. housing bubble bursting in 2007. For years beforehand, lenders had been giving out riskier and riskier mortgages, including waiving or lowering down payment requirements. Ten years later, low- or no-down-payment mortgages may be making a comeback. Several private banks are now offering various zero-down mortgage programs or down payment assistance programs for higher-risk borrowers.
A consequence of this was that the underground petroleum tanks were prone to corroding and rusting, and the soil beneath the property was contaminated with gasoline. But this problem, which the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection took very seriously, was rectified before Demetre took ownership. So Demetre had no reason to think when he took over the lot two years later that he would have anything to worry about.
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".
