Judith Francis thought she would never see her photos again. A few days before Sept. 11, Miss Francis had taken some snapshots of family and friends in front of the World Trade Center. Miss Francis, who worked for insurer Aon Corp. on the 102nd floor of one of the Twin Towers, took the film to a Kelly Film Express outlet in the World Trade Center's ground-floor shopping mall to be developed. Miss Francis survived the terrorist...
For stock investors, August wound up being as frustrating and unsatisfying as the month’s preseason NFL games once again were for football fans. Market averages ticked higher to their latest records during the month, but gains were muted by political tension, energy-sector declines stemming from Hurricane Harvey and the summer lull in trading. In the end, U.S.-stock funds fell slightly. Instead, many investors turned to the safety of government bonds.
As we learn in NFL games, it pays to take risks, even though it sometimes blows up on you. For mutual-fund managers, “being too risk-adverse and not willing to take on risks is a recipe for lagging the benchmark,” says Todd Rosenbluth, director of mutual-fund research at S&P Capital IQ.
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".
