This Underground Farm in Paris Uses Hydroponics to Grow Organic ProduceDescribed as the only organic farm in Paris, this underground farm uses hydroponics to bring life back to abandoned urban spaces. From indoor farming startup Cycloponics, La Caverne is a fully underground endeavor that does not rely on soil or natural sunlight. The new underground farm is located beneath an old parking lot in the north Parisian neighborhood of La Chapelle.
This gas street lamp is powered by dog poop. Developed by Brian Harper of the Transition Malvern Hills community environmental group, the gaslamp has an anaerobic digester that runs on canine feces. The new street light illuminates a residential neighborhood located in the United Kingdom. Dog walkers collecting dog poo in bags as per usual can deposit the excrement into the gas street lamp's digester, which is attached to the lamppost, and turn the provided handle. This heats up and mixes the waste.
Located in Singapore, this physical retail space is the first to only offer crowdfunded products featured on Kickstarter. We The People just sells popular Kickstarter-financed goods as well as open projects that are currently seeking funding. The real-life shop enables customers to physically interact with the products they've seen online and gives them the ability to purchase them then and there without having to wait for it to be shipped.
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".
