GQ Inc's patented jargon translator is here to help you with your business lingo. Entering the market for the first time is like learning mandarin during a pamplona bull run. Time to break down the basics. Asset manager this is the person who manages your investments – and who will most likely charge a pretty penny for the pleasure. Bear market share prices fall, people get pessimistic and sell, prices fall further. Blue chip stock means stock in a large company that has a market cap in the billions.
The former NSW Premier, and architect of Sydney’s ‘lockout laws’, opens up to GQ about the ongoing issues in the Harbour city. Given the anti-Baird sentiment blanketing Sydney, many have forgotten that it was, in fact, the NSW premier’s predecessor, Barry O’Farrell, who crafted the lockout laws. And it is worth noting that, in early 2014 when O’Farrell first announced changes, the city was blanketed by palpable outrage over late-night violence.
Bury personal political persuasions – that includes opinions about Liberal Party NBN policy – and realise Malcolm Turnbull is an anomaly: a man in office, it seems, for the right reasons. Intelligent, effusive and well and truly minted (a rumoured personal wealth of $60m is unlikely to see him attached to headlines about “government expense rorts”), today Turnbull is bunkered down in his Sydney electoral office, his numerous phones and devices befitting of a federal communications minister.
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".
