When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. One Netherlands-based business thinking along those lines has tweaked the old adage to “when careless humans fill your canals with garbage, turn it into office furniture.”Vepa has been making furniture for more than four decades. For their newest product line, they decided that they wanted to do their part to tackle plastic pollution in Amsterdam’s waterways. The result: Plastic Whale Circular Furniture.
Fancy putting a garden suite in your backyard so you can rent out your house? You could build one the old fashioned way over the course of a few weeks… or you could 3D print one in under 24 hours. You could do it on a ridiculously small budget, too. The 800-ish square foot unit you’re looking at here cost just $4,000. $5 per square foot is ridiculously cheap for a building, but there’s more to like about this structure than cost and time savings.
Intel has spent most of the early part of this year dealing with fallout from the revelation of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. Tech companies around the globe have been scrambling to patch their software, and the process hasn't gone smoothly. Intel's main competitor AMD mostly got to watch the chaos from the sidelines. Its chips were affected, though not quite as badly as Intel's.
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".
