The decision to retire from your career isn't one to be taken lightly. With retirement comes a world of repercussions, from the financial to the emotional. It's therefore crucial to put a reasonable amount of thought into when you retire. If you're not sure where to begin, these three questions can help narrow down your ideal retirement age. First, let's be clear: No matter the state of your health, the answer to this question should be a resounding "yes."
It's not every day that $1,000 falls in your lap, but if you're looking at a bonus, commission, or even a generous gift, it pays to use that money wisely. Here are some of the best things you can do if you suddenly find yourself $1,000 richer. No matter how much money you earn, you need some sort of backup plan in case an unexpected expense hits you where it hurts or you lose your job without warning.
When we think of summer, we often imagine days spent lounging on the beach, swimming at the neighbor's pool, or hanging out at the local ice cream joint. But for some people, summer isn't an extended period of leisure. Rather, it's a time to get working and bring in some extra cash. Surprisingly, it seems today's teens aren't all that motivated to work when school's out. Only 43% of teenagers held jobs last summer, compared with 72% back in 1978, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
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".
