Dear Lifehacker, I have a simple question. Solar or wind power - which is more efficient for the home user? Is the Tesla Powerwall any good? Thanks, OllateatakaiIt's good to hear that, like many Australians, you're looking into generating renewable energy in your own home. Australia has one of the best climates in the world for solar energy, and depending on where you live, wind could very well be a viable option as well.
The Australian convention season is coming to a close, as the weather gets warm enough disable the average cosplayer. But before we pack our wigs and armour away for the year, there's just a couple of events left. We headed up to Brisbane Supanova to see the sights -- and captured some of them to bring back to you. While usually we collect photos from our favourite photographers, this time we captured all our pics ourselves on the Huawei Mate 10.
Even though PAX doesn't have an official cosplay competition, or much for cosplayers at all aside from a few panels here and there, it's still a huge event that draws some of Australia's best costumes. From giant Overwatch groups to incredible Blizzard costumes, PAX has it all. Here are some of our favourite cosplay photos from across the weekend. Click through the slideshows below to see some of the best in PAX cosplay, and PAX cosplay photography.
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".
