Rather than the familiar 12-hour clock with minutes and seconds ticking by endlessly, the British-designed, Swiss-made Horizon wristwatch from Optik Instruments shows your day as an entire circle, with a handless interface that — while it may take a little re-learning — becomes just as readable at a glance as standard tickers. In short: the red line is your timekeeper now.
You can always tell when you’re in the home of an artist. It could be the sculptures and knickknacks crammed into every corner. Or maybe the preponderance of oriental rugs and lamps scattered about every surface. Or, you know, a fridge covered in graffiti. Those familiar with the Italian luxury kitchen appliance brand SMEG might already love their retro aesthetic, but the brand isn’t shy about dipping into other aesthetics as well, collaborating with artists and makers like Dolce & Gabbana.
Don’t you hate when you glance at your clock and realize you’re running 6,500 years late for something? Some people feel really strongly about solving this problem, like Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who announced in a Tweet today the construction of a 10,000-year clock. Ok, that’s not why he is doing it, and it wasn’t even his idea to begin with.
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".
