It’s time for another colour blast blog post! This time I did Green, the colour of nature, avocados, money, and apples, for Lauren. She was in New York City at the time, so I used that to inspire me. My pages are about New York, using materials I found when I was there in June, such as green paper and shredded U.S. dollars from the New York Fed. I also had to add some avocados to represent the hipsters of New York.
Automated technology is taking off in the US and will only grow, a report from Aite Group found. Robo-advice is growing and won’t see its market size plateauing any time soon. A year-long study from Aite Group estimates that in America, robo-advice will hit $1trn in assets under management by 2020. In addition, the number of robo-advice clients will rise from 1.8 million in 2016 to 17 million by 2021. Already, the number of automated wealth management accounts have tripled since 2015.
It seems the term is here to stay. The word robo-adviser has been added to the Oxford dictionary, as automated technology becomes increasingly popular. The dictionary defines the noun as “an online application that provides automated financial guidance and services.”Robo-advice in the UK has been expanding in the last year, with numerous platforms and banks launching automated investment services.
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".
