If you love good architecture and you’re crazy about your canine, what could be more fun than designing architecturally pleasing and downright delectable doggie digs? California architects Alejandro and Sarah Pijuan — of Pijuan Design Workshop (PDW) — first came up with their beautiful designs, modelled after mid-century architecture, five years ago. Pijuan explains, “We’re drawn to its clean lines and simple designs that blur the line between the indoor and outdoor living space.
The day Hurricane Katrina was set to hit the United States I read an interview in a Canadian newspaper with a couple in Mississippi – Diane and Tony Brugger. They owned a bed and breakfast called Harbour Oaks Inn located across from Pass Christian Yacht Harbour on the Gulf Coast and they were planning to weather the storm. I went to their website and was treated to pictures of a truly beautiful huge white wooden three storey inn, with a 44’ verandah overlooking the harbour.
Graham Paarman wanted a one-bedroom hideaway resembling a tree house. What the architects in Cape Town, South Africa designed makes him feel totally connected with nature. The Tree House, located in a clearing of eucalyptus and oak trees in Cape Town’s Constantia Valley, has four levels — each one is a square that encompasses a main living space, with half-circle pods extending from each.
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".
