There was a time, not that long ago, when bunk bed rooms evoked images of Camp Runamuck: Narrow beds set atop spindly-looking stilts, with scratchy, mismatched blankets, anorexic mattresses and the notion of comfort nowhere in sight. An adult wouldn’t be caught dead sleeping in one. My, how things have changed.
Intrigued by the “tiny house movement” but unsure how you’d fit—literally and figuratively—into a 135-square-foot space? We were too. So when we got an invite to stay at WeeCasa in Lyons, we jumped at the chance. Billing itself as “the world’s largest tiny home hotel,” WeeCasa opened in May 2015 and now has 22 homes, most of them 81/2 feet wide, between 16 and 28 feet long, and, by federal law, no more than 13½ feet tall. Each has a bathroom, a small refrigerator and at least a one-burner stove.
Drive through the Eisenhower Tunnel, or almost anywhere in the mountains, and you’ll come upon vast swaths of gray forest—what we all recognize as beetle-kill pine. The Forest Service and private landowners can’t let the dead lodgepoles stand because they’re a fire hazard—and that’s where the company Azure Furniture comes in.
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".
