3D printing has been in the mainstream for many areas around the globe for at least several years now, infiltrating nearly every industry—and while much of that includes big industry and manufacturing, from parts for aerospace to automotive, you can also find the technology impacting many other areas, with a heavy emphasis on art and design.
Today we see the juxtaposition of the very old and traditional mixed with progressive new technology such as 3D printing. This is happening as many countries begin to embrace new ways to fabricate parts—and even props, as demonstrated by PhD students from the famous London Royal College of Art, Mingjing Lin and Tsai-Chun Huang, within the Fold the Inter-fashionality project. Here, we see 3D printing used to make costumes for an opera, ‘Farewell My Concubine’ – opening in December.
Think back to when you were a kid, dreaming about a variety of toys. It was a long waiting game for most of us, as we had to hope for some good stuff on birthdays or at Christmas, all the while tempted by commercials, magazine ads, and those rare but glorious trips to the toy store. Today, however, we all have a lot more options when it comes to getting what we want—and at a much faster clip.
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".
