Jump on Pinterest and you’ll be inundated with Millennial pink — a dusty pastel colour that’s been compared to a mix of salmon and grapefruit — on everything from garbage cans to books. It’s the latest proof that we’ve fallen in love with pink all over again. And it’s for more than just décor accessories — from neutrals to bold hues, here’s how to bring it onto to your walls.
It’s easy to show your space some zealous Canadiana pride — and since it’s the country’s 150th, there are plenty of great items from retailers who have developed products especially for the occasion. From tea towels and poutine art prints (seriously, everyone needs one) to solar mounties who wave when you place them in the sun, here’s how to add a little patriotic whimsy to your home. This post is part of The Canada Project, a representative survey of Canadians from across the country.
Is an afternoon at Ikea really complete without a plate of Swedish meatballs (or two, we’re not judging) before you head to the check-out with your Billy bookcase? (If you’re anywhere other than Canada, you might just have an Ikea-branded beer with your meal, too). In 1959, the first Ikea restaurant opened in Almhult, Sweden where the headquarters are now located; today their restaurants serve 650 million customers across the globe every year.
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".
