Did you think the housing collapse killed off "liar loans"-those infamous bubble-era mortgages for which people were allowed to get creative in portraying their ability to make the payments? Well, they're back, and that may be a good thing.
Stephane Fitch, Contributor I write about real estate, economics, finance and investing. 9/20/2006 @ 11:08AM Trump's relentless bloviating about his developments-"This is going to be the biggest, best, most amazing"-leads many people to assume that he exaggerates his net worth. He's lately put his fortune at $6 billion.
In March 2012 Jilliene Helman was a 25-year-old vice president at Union Bank in Los Angeles, where she'd worked in real estate and wealth management, while dreaming of her own startup. That month Congress passed the JOBS Act, making it easier to raise capital through crowdfunding on the Web.
@WendiChicago lol. I was sure it would be the stories on real estate investment trusts that ensnared me in the sordid and money-soaked world of videotaped sex. All that hot talk about funds from operations, you know.
@nathanvardi I was a little hurt he didn't select one of my edgier cover stories. Why not our 2001 cover about the housing bubble? Or our exhaustive 2004 investigation of the Pritzker family's vast network of offshore trusts? Ack, there's no accounting for taste.
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".
