Normally articles like these have a pithy intro, but before anything else, check to see if the water line is leaking. If your fridge has a water dispenser or ice marker, there is a plastic tube in the back that brings in water. Slowly wheel your fridge forward to take a peek behind it. If you see water coming out of the tubing, you need to either stem the tide with some plumbers tape or turn off the water.
There are a lot of upsides to downsizing your living space. Probably biggest change is getting more bang for your buck, since you don't have room for useless junk. But what about your laundry situation? Should you buy a compact washer, use a laundromat, or sign up for a laundry service? The answer is that I'm not a wizard and therefore can't decide for you, but I've been professionally doing laundry for over five years and can give you the basic pros and cons of each choice.
As the rom-com troupe goes: The Bissell Zing 6489 (available at Amazon for $64.80) isn't the right vacuum, it's a right now vacuum. Retailing for around $50, the Zing is amongst the most affordable canister vacuums on the market. To that end, it performs up to its price point. The lack of any spinning brushes and the fact that it's a dust magnet, keep it from being a hidden gem.
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".
