At Studio Make Believe we create objects that solve problems. Here's a rather long explanation of the thinking behind the object. In “Authentic Happiness,” Dr. Martin Seligman; postulates that there are three paths to happiness: The Pleasant Life, The Good Life, and The Meaningful Life. So we created the 'Authentic Joy Selector' for someone to randomly select which path they wanted to take on each day by pressing the button and flipping the cards. The Pleasant Life: Do something you love.
Problem: A shot glass, the once iconic symbol of Tequila, is increasingly used by a plethora of other drinks, all competing in the same space. The loss of this icon is a loss to the Tequila category and doesn’t help the bar call. A round of Tequila has simply become a round of shots. Our challenge was to help Tequila reclaim the shot glass for itself. The real issue behind the problem was identified using our proprietary diagnostic approach.
You've probably seen in the mainstream news this week that a serious security flaw has been found in the way most modern CPUs work. Devices are already being patched, but come with a cost of a performance loss. The exploits have been confirmed by Apple to affect both their Intel based devices and ARM-based iOS devices. With Nintendo Switch's Nvidia Tegra X1 system also using an ARM-based CPU, it seems to be likely that Nintendo Switch will be vulnerable to the techniques.
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".
