Q: For our anniversary, my husband gave me a beautiful, rose gold watch, and I absolutely adore it. I want to redo our master bath with rose gold faucets and hardware to remind me of his gift and our love for each other. However, is this a fad that will look dated soon? What color should the walls, cabinets and counters, and towels be? A: Congratulations on your anniversary. I love your idea of taking the rose gold finish into your master bath.
Q: Navy blue and grass green are my favorite colors, especially together. In our bedroom, I want to put down new blue carpet that will match some pretty blue-and-green sheets I just bought. I already have accent walls in blue and green, so I think it will all be lovely. My husband thinks it is a very bad idea. How can I convince him it’ll be great? A: Isn’t it fun to customize your look, especially turning your bedroom into a relaxing place you love?
Q: My boyfriend and I recently moved into our first apartment. I notice the ceiling lights have different colors. Some are whiter and some look more yellow, which I like better. Also, the chandelier over our dining table has all super-bright-white lightbulbs, but I think that’s way too harsh for dining. A: I’m impressed you notice that the quality of light bothers you, and I also prefer a warmer glow. Anything can be changed: With today’s technology in lightbulbs, there are hundreds of choices.
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".
