The Kenwick Bungalow Tour attracts people who come brimming with questions for the neighborhood homeowners, to get ideas and inspiration for work they want to do on their own house. Frequently, tour-goers have a pen and notepad in a pocket to jot down notes. “They want to know, how did you do this? Why did you do that? Are the floors original? What’s the name of a particular paint color?” said Dawn Paluch, chairwoman of this year’s tour.
Allison Horseman lives on a Pulaski County farm that has been in her family since 1928. It’s where her mother, Mary May, grew up, and where Horseman was raised. The mother and daughter have searched for a way to honor the family’s farming heritage and use the land they both love. Horseman considered several possibilities: raising goats and making goat cheese, tending chickens and selling eggs, starting a pumpkin farm. Her father, Jim May, provided a reality check.
The charm of Marjory Yurek’s garden is as much about the collection of found objects she’s picked up along the road or bought for a song at the Salvation Army as it is about what grows there. Gnarly old tree stumps, a 1950’s red metal lawn chair, teapots hung as bird feeders, a rusty iron headboard, and dozens more things are right at home among the flowers and vegetables.
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".
