Spanish conquistador, Herman Cortes, once opined that the Spanish had "a sickness of the heart that only gold can cure." Do today's gold investors also have a sickness of the heart that only a rising fiat exchange price can cure? And is bitcoin's charm standing in the way of that cure? Craig Hemke of TFMetalsReport.com says that gold and bitcoin complement each other and those gold bugs hating on the cryptocurrency sector have got it wrong. But will gold rise again?
For the past year, much of the crypto news has been focused on the coming disaster of a hard fork in bitcoin? Or would it be a soft fork? Well, you wait all year for a fork and two arrive the same week. After a sudden hard fork in bitcoin to the new altcoin, Bitcoin Cash, not much happened that was bad; in fact, bitcoin went to the moon, as they say. Double Down talks to Jimmy Song about the forks taken and what they mean for the future of bitcoin.
What is the ‘war on cash’ really about? Mish Shedlock says it is to help cover up the fact that the banks are insolvent. Across Europe and Australia, where the suggestions to ban cash are the most vocal, also happens to be where banks are most likely to face bank runs. At the same time, however, all this central bank monetary policy has been unable to create inflation and everyone is ‘stumped?’ Is it really so surprising? Mish says not. And he’s got a whole lot of explaining on offer.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
