HGTV Designer Melissa Davis shares her top six reasons on why you should attend the 2017 Interior Design Show (IDS) at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from January 19 to 22. The annual Interior Design Show (IDS) has become the place designers and home aficionados alike search out the latest and greatest with the swift efficiency of a curated show. We designers plot out a calculated course, pouring over the exhibitor list in advance, and breaking in our most stylish rubber soled shoes.
The more I travel, the tougher it seems for me to experience those gasp-worthy moments. I’ve experienced many hotels, tiny boutique resorts and mammoth mini-communities. As a designer, our formative years are defined and refined by studying all the greats that existed before us. The architects, the artists the industrial designers that had that innate magic we strive to emulate, or in the least defer to as that which we admit is simply, bigger than us.
Thronies! Does your blood run just a little bit cold watching the latest “Game of Thrones” trailer for Season 7? The show runners are, of course, playing with us — showing all the main characters but hinting with the voice-over that we shouldn’t get too attached; “the lone wolf falls but the pack survives,” intones Sansa.
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".
