The next big thing in apartment living may be very small – that is, micro. But for the real estate owners who develop them, the returns the may be huge. Buildings in some of the most expensive cities in America now offer units so small that ordinances had to be waived just to allow them. In New York City’s Kips Bay, a development called Carmel Place opened in November offering 55 studio units renting between $2,540 and $2,750 per month.
Income taxes are due less than two months from now. It’s also the time many Americans contemplate rolling their 401(k) plans into an IRA. But doing so may depend on several important factors. According to Alec Young, investment strategist at OppenheimerFunds, the quality of a 401(k) should be the top concern. “The way you determine that is the fees on the funds,” he said. “Take a look at what the ranges are. Are my funds in the lower end of those ranges? What's the investment selection like?
It’s been a tough year so far for markets all over the world. Just about every major global index is down, with some – notably, the Shanghai Composite (000001.SS) and the Nikkei 225 (^N225) – getting pummeled year-to-date. The S&P 500 (^GSPC), often used as the benchmark for U.S. large cap portfolios, is holding on by its fingertips, up just a fraction of 1%. But even the ultimate American index has more exposure to the global economy than meets the eye.
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".
