Aetna Inc. Chief Executive Mark T. Bertolini is set to pocket roughly half a billion dollars when he leaves his company if it successfully merges with CVS Health Corp. If the $69 billion deal between the pharmacy chain CVS, -4.57% and health insurer AET, -1.44% goes through, Bertolini stands to reap a generous exit payment and benefit from a big increase in the value of the stock and rights he owns because of the premium CVS is paying for Aetna.
Hewlett-Packard Co. released Friday a touchscreen tablet computer that runs Windows, becoming the latest computer maker to jump into the fray following Apple Inc.'s debut of the iPad earlier this year. H-P's Slate 500 tablet can be bought on the company's website for $799—above the price of most iPads, which range in price from $499 to $829,...
Sometimes, Shirley would have to drive to separate towns to get to different events going on for Midland students on the same day! Any alumni of Midland can’t deny the feeling of seeing your pictures and stats in the Midland Times. That was almost 20 years ago and I can still remember the tingle of excitement of picking up a copy of the Midland Times and seeing pictures and articles about friends and classmates. It became part of the ritual of things to do and read.
There are scoops of information, where reporters know something because they’ve gotten people to give them privileged info, and there are scoops of intelligence, where a reporter predicts something based on analysis. This is a perfect example of a scoop of intelligence. https://twitter.com/andrewlbeaton/status/973597021620899840
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".
