And for most debt-weary Americans, shopping is not on that list. Did you know that 24 percent of Millennials are still paying off credit card debt incurred during the last holiday season? This shocking fact comes from the 2017 Consumer Holiday Shopping Report released by NerdWallet and reported on here by CNBC. The number is slightly lower for Gen-Xers at 16 percent and Boomers at 8 percent.
Driving is hard. It requires skill and the full undivided attention of an experienced sober human to control a ton of steel going at high speed. The main reason that 30,000 people die on the roads in the US every year is that a lot of us out there don't meet that standard. In Toronto Canada, back in April, 2015, Gideon Fekre took his eyes off the road to reach for a dropped water bottle.
From Nordic to Japanese to Mediterranean, a number of diets claim to have the key to longevity. But what do these really have in common? What do Japan, Greece, Italy, Norway, France, Germany, and Canada have in common? You might be scratching your head for a while, so here's the answer. They are among the most equal nations on Earth, and they also happen to have the longest average life spans. Could these two factors be connected somehow? Keith Payne of Inequality.org thinks so.
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".
