When living in small apartments, urban dwellers often have to reconfigure their spaces so that they are more efficient and functional. Modular designs are often a good solution: they adapt to the space that's available and they can expand or contract over time, and suit the kitchen particularly well: a household's cooking and storage needs can change overnight when roommates or grown children move out.
From geodesic domes to affordable underground installations, greenhouses come in many forms and functions. American artist William Lamson goes down an interesting and decidedly sweet detour with his experimental solarium, lined with panes made out of caramelized sugar. Situated on top of a hill in Storm King Art Center in upstate New York, Lamson's multi-coloured solarium tests the boundaries of materials. Lamson transforms sugar into a rigid substrate by heating it to high temperatures.
Grocery bills can get out of control very quickly. Here's how to keep a lid on things. Everyone needs to eat, but not everyone has to spend a fortune on food. If you’re diligent about shopping efficiently and effectively, then you can save a lot of money on groceries. That money can go toward other important things, such as paying down consumer debt or a mortgage, enjoying life, or retiring early. It all adds up in the end.
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".
