A Baltimore nonprofit is pinning a lot of hopes on a small footprint. Among the first things you notice when driving eastward into Baltimore are the blocks of decrepit row houses. The city claims that only . Skeptics say the real number is closer to 46,000, or 16 percent of the city’s housing stock. Baltimore certainly isn’t the only city experiencing a housing crisis: The U.S. as a whole can’t seem to keep up with the growing numbers of very low-income households.
Orange, most people would agree, is a very bold hue—some color theorists even describe it as the color of rebellion. But for art collector clients of decorator Meg Braff, orange is anything but confrontational. Rather, it goes a long way to enhance and uplift their otherwise quiet, sun-drenched weekend home in Southampton. “They wanted summery colors, but nothing too beachy,” Braff says.
Brands love tweeting about popular television shows, and last night’s season premiere of The Walking Dead was no exception. Here are six Zombie-apocalyptic tweets from brands trying to feed off the show’s buzz. We shudder to think what kind of meat a zombie would expect in his Moons Over My Hammy. They are also delicious dipped in milk. Hyundai actually gets a pass for tweeting about the show: the Tucson compact SUV has been prominently featured in The Walking Dead for the last four years.
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".
