Cracks in the business model that has guided the auto industry in the past century are becoming more visible by the day. Individuals in the future are less likely to buy and own their own cars; they are more likely to share and rent them. Vehicle occupants aren’t as likely in the coming years to be behind the wheel themselves, and, as a result, may be more indifferent to snazzy brands. The appeal of the shared model will get a big boost by the increasing ease of digital payments.
China’s Internet giant Tencent Holdings boasts one of the world’s largest stock-market capitalizations and networks of Internet users. Its chairman Ma Huateng can now add this feather to his cap: he has passed a wealth milestone that no other mainland Chinese individual has reached to date. Ma’s personal fortune exceeded $50 billion for the first time on Friday, according to the Forbes Real-Time Rich List.
C-Mer Eye Care Holdings, the Hong Kong eye care provider whose shareholders include Asia’s richest man Ma Huateng, today minted a new billionaire couple of its own. A 58% leap in its share price at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange today values the stake held by chairman Dennis Lam and his wife Li Xiaoting at $1.4 billion. Lam and Li Xiaoting own 100% of C-Mer Group, which in turn owns 722 million shares of the listed 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".
