Hotelier Leon Avigad has dusted off a 19th century villa in the Russian Compound neighbourhood of Jerusalem to transform it into Villa Brown. Unlike his Tel Aviv properties, this one does not tap into the 1970s disco or Miami Beach vibe, but instead takes its cues from the late Ottoman Empire period, a cultural pinnacle of Jerusalem, and its former owner, a storied doctor at the Rothschild Hospital, whose own soirées were legendary.
Though its history is long and proud, few people in Canada—let alone outside of the country—know about Prince Edward County (PEC), Ontario. But the county—two hours east of Toronto and about the same distance west of Ottawa—is being discovered because of its wealth of lovely, simple pleasures.
In 1985, architecture writer Patricia McHugh released Toronto Architecture: A City Guide,a comprehensive guide to the city and its building styles that became, in some eyes, “the Bible of Toronto architecture.” Among the book’s entries were examples of some of Toronto’s architectural idiom, such as the Victoria-era, mostly red brick, semi-detached “bay and gable houses” – the term was coined by McHugh – which are found throughout the city’s east and west ends, and which she called “virtually...
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".
