Sometimes, entrepreneurs talk about opening a business like placing a bet in Vegas. There’s about a 50-50 chance they will survive past five years. And they find out in the business gamble that a key to success is knowing when to hold and when to fold. “Retail is very tough and you don’t know what the climate will be,” said Molly Broeren, owner of Molly’s of Denver women’s clothing store downtown. At 36 years old, the store at 1660 Stout St. has outlived most businesses.
Colorado's unemployment rate held steady for another month at 2.3 percent in June -- a record low unemployment rate, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment announced today. The state's jobless rate, which has been the lowest in the nation, remained at a four-decade low dating back to when state record keeping began in 1976. The state's employers added 6,500 nonfarm payroll jobs from May to June, with 6,100 jobs added in the private sector.
New business filings in Colorado continued an upward trajectory in the second quarter of 2017 — up 5.9 percent from this time last year. The filings were down 8.4 percent from the first quarter of the year but Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams still characterized the second quarter as robust growth. And, he added, the new business filings bode well for future job growth in the state.
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".
