A new driver’s license for Californians is coming out and you may not be able to get on a plane or on a military base without it by late-2020. According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), the new license has been in the works for years but the state hasn’t started issuing them yet. “It’s not mandatory, so if you don’t fly or enter federal facilities that require ID or military bases, you don’t need a Real ID,” Jessica Gonzalez, a spokesperson for the California DMV said.
The holidays are only a few keystrokes away and with more consumers turning to online sales than ever before, NBC Responds wants to help you protect your next purchase. According to Amazon, last year the company delivered more than two-billion products worldwide and a lot of those products came from third-party sellers. When it comes to buying products from third-parties, if the seller asks you to pay with Amazon gift cards instead of paying through Amazon Pay, experts say don’t do it.
With the pressure of Black Friday and holiday crowds, traditional stores are looking for ways to compete in this online world where everything is on demand. “My guess is for retail stores that are going to be around the next five or ten years, they’re going to have to do the same thing,” Marketing Professor James Mourey said. She said one thing brick and mortar stores can do is make online orders immediately available.
By October 2020, Californians will need a new license or ID card to fly on a plane or enter federally secured locations like military bases. It's called a Real ID. @ConsumerBobNBC has more: https://t.co/eBGfktdrxp
With Black Friday and holiday crowds, brick and mortar stores are trying to compete with online retailers. One way = in-store pickup. @ConsumerBobNBC & #NBC7 Responds partnered up with stations across the country to see if stores can deliver on their in-store pickup promises. https://t.co/66fhDLYsf1
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".
