Baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr.’s sprawling 24-acre Maryland home is up for sale. And, yes, it comes with its own baseball diamond. The 21,890-square-foot Reisterstown home, which will be auctioned to the highest bidder May 12, boasts a large kitchen, home theater and finished basement. The biggest draws, however, are the Baseball Hall of Famer’s personal athletic facilities.
If you’re an investor, you’re probably breathing a sigh of relief now that it looks as if the stock market selloff that spooked Wall Street this month is over. But equities weren’t the only investments that fell — or that investors should be worried about. Most types of bonds and bond funds have also suffered losses this year. The average long-term government bond fund, for instance, is down more than 6% this year and more than 7% since late December.
Greed turned to fear in the cryptocurrency markets this week, following what was believed to be the largest theft of cryptocoins ever. Last Friday, thieves hacked into Coincheck, a cryptocurrency exchange in Japan, and walked away with over $530 million worth of Nem, an alt-coin that saw its price rise 574% to $1.90 in one month from early December to early January. It’s now sitting at under $0.70. For its part, Coincheck has said it will reimburse nearly every Nem at $0.81 on the dollar.
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".
