The cost of living in the U.S. is probably still rising -- just not as fast as at the start of the year. Consumer prices advanced 0.2 percent last month from January, which saw the biggest increase since September, according to the median projection of analysts surveyed by Bloomberg ahead of Tuesday’s Labor Department report. Even so, the continued gains in prices will be a key reason behind the widely anticipated decision by Federal Reserve policy makers to raise interest rates on March 21.
(Bloomberg) -- Jerome Powell is concerned about the finances of America’s youth. In testimony to the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday, the head of the Federal Reserve said that growing student debt "absolutely could hold back growth" in the U.S. economy. Total student debt climbed to $1.4 trillion in the fourth quarter of 2017, the highest in New York Federal Reserve data going back to 2003.
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks plunged on Thursday, with the S&P 500 Index falling 1.3 percent for its third straight loss of 1 percent or more, after U.S. President Donald Trump promised to impose substantial tariffs on foreign metals. The benchmark gauge has had a volatile year so far, closing above or below the 1-percent threshold 15 out of 41 trading days, or 37 percent of the time. That easily surpasses the total of last year.
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".
