Connecticut missed the cut for the 20 finalists to get a second headquarters of Amazon, with New York City, Boston and Newark, N.J. still in the mix. Amazon expects to make a final decision by the end of 2018, with the company planning to invest $5 billion and create as many as 50,000 jobs in the city it selects, envisioning it as a full-fledged equal to its headquarters office in Seattle.

STAMFORD — GE Capital has completed the relocation of its remaining Stamford employees to its Norwalk headquarters and offices in New York City, Hearst Connecticut Media has confirmed. Approximately 300 workers based at 800 Long Ridge Road — which had housed the headquarters of the firm’s Energy Financial Services division and offices of its Industrial Finance unit — had moved in the past two months.
The Sage of Omaha’s successor stands a strong chance of coming from Stamford. Ajit Jain, the head of Stamford-based Berkshire Hathaway Reinsurance Group, was appointed last week by Warren Buffett as vice chairman of insurance operations at Berkshire Hathaway Inc., the multi-industry conglomerate that Buffett oversees as chairman and CEO. The promotion reflects Buffett’s longstanding belief in Jain, a three-decade veteran of the Omaha, Neb.-based company.
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".
