Two years ago the Columbus housing market was heating up. Prices were steadily rising and homes were selling briskly. Yet in hindsight, those were humble days. Today there are a third fewer homes for sale, average home prices are up by more than 10 percent and houses are selling 38 percent faster than just two years ago. “Central Ohio is experiencing one of the hottest housing markets we’ve ever seen,” said Columbus Realtors President Mic Gordon.
Baby boomers ushered in the fitness craze four decades ago — heck, Nike was started by boomer Phil Knight and fellow boomers Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons helped spark workout video popularity — so it’s not surprising that staying physically active is a priority for retirees these days. And there is no shortage of options for the athletically inclined seniors.
Ohio is in the middle of the pack when it comes to the rate it’s adding construction jobs, according to a new report from the Associated General Contractors of America. Ohio has added approximately 4,900 construction jobs in the past 12 months, a 2.4 percent increase. That ranks the state 29th for growth in construction jobs. There are 211,100 construction jobs in Ohio, up from 206,200 jobs in May 2016.
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".
