Kitchen and bathroom renovations are said to bring good return on investment when it comes time to sell a house. But whether that is true involves many variables. For homeowners who intend to stay five or more years in their house, it makes more sense to make the changes that create the best setting for their lifestyle and taste. To get an idea of the possibilities, four of the houses on this year’s Parade of Renovations feature complete house makeovers.
A little red brick house on Windermere Road near Adelaide Street has become a temporary home for up to 60 cats. It’s not that the cats don’t like the newly renovated bright space, the tiered, spacious ‘suites’ with hammocks, roosts, toys and beds — they appear to love their new digs. But they are up for adoption and ready to move into an even better home. The Catty Shack at 769 Windermere Rd.
It’s not often you hear church and modern in the same sentence. It’s not often Canadian architecture and design are in the spotlight. It’s not often you hear about an all-Canadian film festival. And it’s really rare for all of those elements to come together in a free event. But once a year, Londoners have a chance to enjoy design-focused cinema during a series presented by Forest City Modern and the London Public Library.
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".
