It all started with Amazon one-click in 1995. Now different buy buttons are widespread across the web. PayPal remains the most pervasive buy button online, with 67 percent of top e-commerce websites accepting it as a payment method, according to a recent PYMNTS.com survey. Proving that an early start is an advantage, the second most prevalent button is Amazon Pay, which is accepted by ten percent of merchants. New to the game are the checkout wallets of the international card schemes.
Cybercrime continues to grow and evolve, taking new forms and directions. It is also beginning to converge with serious and organised crime, supported by a professional underground economy of skills and services. “The global impact of huge cyber security events, such as the WannaCry ransomware epidemic, has taken the threat to another level,” said Rob Wainwright, executive director, Europol on the publication of the 2017 Internet Organised Crime Threat Assessment report.
In mid-September, the Bank of England issued a new polymer £10 note featuring the author Jane Austen. The notes include raised dots in the upper corner to help blind and partially sighted people identify them. Security features include a hologram window to raise the bar against counterfeiters. But with so many digital ways to pay, why issue new notes? UK consumers are enthusiastically using digital payments.
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".
