If the vibe surrounding your office NCAA pool is like mine this year, there's only one word to really sum it up: deflated. Despite my pleas and reminders to fill out brackets, only eight intrepid Business First souls could work up the energy to join in the fun. Yes, I know, the Louisville Cardinals are playing in the NIT this year, and March Madness just isn't the same after the NCAA's punishment last month.
It turns out Chairman and CEO Steve Trager wasn't the highest-paid executive at Republic Bancorp in 2017, according to the company's annual shareholder proxy filed this week with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Trager's total compensation package amounted to $545,525 last year, which was an 8 percent increase from 2016. He received a modest base salary increase - to $376,502 - and a sizable increase in bonus to $129,500 from $92,500 last year.
Several of Humana Inc.'s top executives received hefty increases to their total compensation in 2017 - with the exception of CEO Bruce Broussard. In fact, Broussard saw his 2017 compensation package remain essentially flat compared to the previous year. He took home a total package of about $19.8 million, just about $40,000 more than his 2016 compensation. His base salary grew slightly to $1.27 million, but his stock awards shrunk to $10.2 million vs. $11.8 million a year ago.
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".
