Two groups should know about Everything But the House ( EBTH.com ): those who need to liquidate their home or a loved one’s, and those who want to bid on choice estate-sale items via online auctions that all start at $1. Founded in Cincinnati in 2008, the company has spread to 27 markets. Experts in the L.A. market service Palm Springs estates, where they discern the best bets for every item: trash, donate, keep, or sell.
If you’re building a custom home, your ideas for crazy customizations are limited only by your builder’s time and patience. (And the size of your budget.) In the case of this residence at The Madison Club, it was the intuitive builder himself who conjured a kitchen-island-as-party-bar on the homeowner’s behalf. “Our client is a vodka guy and it worked out beautifully,” says architectural/interior designer Gordon Stein, referencing the lighted beverage-drop in the center of the island.
Maybe it’s time to drain your typical tub routine and move it outside. Rooms at La Serena Villas, a boutique hotel in Palm Springs, treat guests to an outdoor bathing concept anyone would want in their own home. On the patio of nearly every room, an outdoor claw-foot tub sits close enough to feel the warmth of a fire pit. A stool awaits within arm’s length to hold a glass of bubbly to go with your bubble bath. Soak, sip, and pass the plush robe. It’s all very Pretty Woman.
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".
