What is fair pay for enduring a new job for nine months that isn’t quite the right fit? How about $100 million? That’s what Thomas Freston was paid to walk away after that much time as CEO of Viacom. Freston was one of 21 executives to be paid more than $100 million each to leave jobs since 2000. Together, the 21 CEOs departed the companies with more than $4 billion in their pockets, according to a study cited by the Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation.
A half-century after the peak of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, there are still insights to be gained and emotions to be triggered by documents and images that few have seen. That’s the premise behind a major exhibition at the National Archives in Washington called “Remembering Vietnam,” from Nov. 10 through January 2019, in the building housing America’s most cherished artifacts.
As a result, scammers stole tens of billions of dollars last year from older Americans and the programs that serve them. Medicare fraud alone is estimated at $60 billion annually. In July of this year, 412 people were busted by federal investigators in health care fraud schemes that netted $1.3 billion. So who are these thieves? Too often they are people who gained a victim’s trust by having seemingly solid credentials as social workers, doctors, lawyers and financial advisers.
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".
