If there is going to be a war between the United States and North Korea someone other than President Donald Trump or Kim Jong-un might have to tell Wall Street. At the moment investors couldn't care less, which is odd. Indeed, if the moves in sharemarkets are any guide no one seems to be listening to the barbs being thrown around by the two leaders right now. It's all just viewed as cheap trash talk on Twitter or something out of a bad spy movie.
If Philip Lowe starts to hike interest rates and it makes life a misery for everyone who has a mortgage, and then slows the economy down dramatically, then he runs the risk of being the first governor of the Reserve Bank since Bernie Fraser to be in the top job when there's a recession. No central banker wants that on their resume. Not since Paul Volcker in the 1980s went on a crusade to beat inflation has a central banker caused a recession by hiking interest rates.
Dire warnings about what will happen when driverless cars finally arrive have come thick and fast over the past few years. But it's really nothing new. When cars that needed a driver first hit the road more than 100 years ago there were all sorts of predictions about what sort of damage these "devil wagons" could cause. For a start, if you drove one, the experts of the day, said it could make you go insane.
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".
