The addition of a three-car garage (yes, three!) plus a studio may end up being what sets The Block houses apart from anything else on the market at present, it certainly will in Elsternwick. By adding this mini-house onto each property’s block, it really is delivering so much more than “just a family home”. The contestants might not be feeling so enthusiastic about tackling garages and studios, but I reckon the addition of them may be what spices things up come auction day.
The contestants might not be feeling so enthusiastic about tackling garages and studios, but I reckon the addition of them may be what spices things up come auction day. If only we had known what Sarah and Jason are capable of earlier on in the series ... and if only they'd work this hard from day one, we could have witnessed a very different competition this season. The stroke of genius in their bedroom/office area this the week is the instillation of a nib wall.
Who would have thought that backyard week on The Block would end up being such a jungle? But that’s exactly what it has been this week, jungle rules and all. The curly question about how much pools actually add value to a property has never felt more relevant, especially when you have to pay to use the air space above your neighbours’ property. Ronnie and Georgia have managed, come hell or high-water, to get their round pool in. It’s glamorous and it’s black. Classic R&G.
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".
