Social Security is arguably the most important social program in this country. Each month, around 62 million people receive a benefit check, of which more than two out of three are retired workers. Of these retirees, 62% lean on Social Security to account for half of their income. Without this guaranteed monthly stipend, the elderly poverty rate would be considerably higher.
I recently wrote about what could be the five biggest new drugs of 2018. There wasn't a marijuana-related drug on the list. But that's just because I stopped at the top five. Had I gone further, it would be a different story. Market research firm EvaluatePharma looked at all of the potential new drugs that could be launched in 2018 and ranked them by their projected sales in 2022. Coming in at No.
The units of coal miner Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ:ARLP) fell 12% in 2017, which might make you believe it was a pretty bad year for the partnership. But the partnership actually made notable progress in many ways, including a return to distribution growth. While 2018 probably won't be Alliance Resource Partners' best year yet, here's what to watch to see if the coal miner can turn it into a solid one. At its core, Alliance is a commodity producer of thermal coal.
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".
