The elegant aluminum swing is part of Venice, California-based designer Ilan Dei’s Cruiser Collection—a nod to the hot rod culture of the ’50s and ’60s. Available in three colors (marigold, Pacific, and fog), it hangs from braided nylon rope, and accommodates two. Meet me on the porch in ten? I’ll bring the rosé.
More than half of household falls happen in the bathroom, so products that make this room safer for everyone are a win. But usually they're ugly. Enter Sabi by Urbio of Oakland, whose new line is practical and attractive. Here are our three favorites. HOLD (pictured above) It's like a grab bar, only better since it's accessible from all angles. HOOP A silicon ring keeps towels in place so they don't fall and cause slips.
Remodels eat up cash. One way to economize is to handle any demolition yourself. "If someone has the strength and the will to get dirty, they can usually do it," says Julia Bettencourt, owner of bathroom showroom Plumbed Elegance, in Santa Cruz, California. She saved about $800 on her bathroom redo by tearing out the walls and old fixtures herself (just wear a dust mask when removing insulation). P.S. Like the bathroom above? See the whole house.
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".
