Since signing the Treaty of Kanagawa with the U.S. in 1854 and openings its borders, Japan has grown to become one of the world’s largest economies, behind only the United States, China and the European Union (if measured as a single country). Nevertheless, Japan faces numerous challenges to the continued growth of its economy. In March 2011, Japan was hit with the strongest earthquake in its history.
One of the world’s poorest countries before 1960, South Korea transformed its economy into a powerhouse, growing its gross national income per capita from $85 in 1961 to more than $20,000 by 2006 — a feat dubbed the “Miracle on the Han River.”South Korea’s economic growth as of late, however, is far from miraculous. Korea’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth shifted downward from 3.3 percent in 2014 to 2.6 percent in 2015 because of a slowdown in exports.
Prior to entering the mortgage industry, Thuan Nguyen was a software programmer, but not a very good one by his own admission. “I was afraid when I got older, [it was] going to be difficult for me to switch, to get another job,” he says. So, he chose a field that seemed lucrative: mortgage origination. He learned the business himself, online, and got his broker’s license. “There’s no mentor, no company.
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".
