You don’t need $1,000. Just $5 will do. The growing trend in financial services is the use of investment apps — mobile investing applications that let users enter the market with what amounts to spare cash. No need to meet with a financial adviser face to face. No need to be embarrassed about your salary or your savings account. "A lot of these apps are democratizing," said Robert Barba, senior banking and fintech writer and analyst for Bankrate.
It's Sarah Hauer. Again. This is Be MKE where I share stories about Milwaukee, its people and what's happening around town. Every Wednesday, think of me as your city guide. The TL;DR version: Brenner Brewing is closing, there's now another chance to eat brunch at Lazy Susan and TripAdvisor is being looked at by the FTC. Like your Thanksgiving turkey, this newsletter is stuffed. Sign up for Be MKE and have it delivered to your inbox every Wednesday.
Milwaukee can grow as a technology-centric city if it can link its disjointed parts and people, according to startup champion and community builder Matt Cordio. Cordio's company, Skills Pipeline Group, is exploring convening a tech-centric event this spring similar to Milwaukee Startup Week. The idea came after attendance grew 57% for Milwaukee Startup Week events this year. Cordio is the lead organizer and co-founder of Milwaukee Startup Week.
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".
