Partaking in what sounds like the photography assignment of a lifetime is Andrew Pielage, who has set out to capture every one of Frank Lloyd Wright's remaining works. So far, he's photographed 52 of the famous architect's existing designs, and is totally committed to nab photos of all 521. But this ambitious project goes far beyond cataloguing purposes.
Taking energy efficiency to the next level appears to be the goal of this "energy positive" hotel that's set to be constructed within the Arctic Circle. Design firm Snøhetta teamed up with a few other Norwegian companies to create a vision for the hotel that's energetic output will surpass the resources it consumes over the span of its 60-year lifetime.
Scandinavians have come up with a pretty awesome way to simultaneously whip the body and the planet into shape with an increasingly popular fitness trend referred to as plogging. A combination of the Swedish verbs for "to jog" and "to pick," plogging is a cardio-boosting combo of jogging and picking up litter.
I had the opportunity to interview someone I really admire for an article I'm working on, but it's one of those too good to be true moments that I can barely believe happened. In fact, I won't until I see the published piece.
Other than scrolling for calls for pitches and reading fellow writers' work, I've avoided social media lately because... life. I've never been "good at it" per se, but the urge to tweet randomly struck me because I had an incredible day and want to blabber endlessly about it
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".
