A cantilevered studio on the property of winery owner Ian MacDonald is a rather literal leap of faith in the Okanagan. It was near the bottom of a trail traversing a hundred-foot slope to Okanagan Lake that the Ply Architecture team and owner Ian MacDonald first voiced the idea: Why don’t we cantilever the studio over the edge? “You’re looking up at this almost unattainable horizon because it’s so sheer and steep,” says architect Arnold Chan.
World Oceans Day is just one day but it’s every day that the oceans sustain life, bring beauty, provide pathos. While aboard an Adventure Canada trip in the Arctic I was privileged to engage with the ocean on an almost primal level, atop and amidst its salty waters. This bobbing about—for never have I felt more that I’m a mere minuscule of a molecule on this planet—culminated in Ilulissat Icefjord.
Far below me, and far beyond my line of sight, stretches the surreal, snaking strip of a snow-and-ice-choked glacier. Or what looks like an ice highway. It’s the Kaskawulsh Glacier. At some 25,000 square kilometres, its size is hard to take in, literally and figuratively.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
