It’s a simple idea: Think of where you’re happiest, and bring elements of that place into your home. In the case of this serene Clarksburg house that Lauren Liess designed for a family of four, the starting point was “on the water.”“That’s where the inspiration came from—they love to travel, and they love adventure,” says Liess. “The couple spent a year on a boat when they were younger.”The designer worked within a palette of soothing green, blue, and ivory.
When Laura Arana-Castillo first met Victor Salinas-Furio, it wasn’t at a bar or through an app, but the old-fashioned way: they grew up together. The couple met when they were just thirteen years old during a local festival in Valencia, Spain. They were out on the town and it was a late night hopping from one place to another with friends, when a mutual acquaintance introduced them to one another. “She was captivatingly beautiful,” remembers Victor.
When Alexis Polakoff, a senior specialist of events at ALSAC and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and John Fedora, a consultant at Accenture, met on a dating app, the first thing they realized was that they both had deep ties (and a shared love) of the Washington DC-area. Though Will grew up in North Carolina, he had attended boarding school in Alexandria. Alexis, born and raised in Bethesda, quickly discovered they had friends in common.
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".
