Jimmy Jung uses the 16-by-28-foot bonus room in his Falls Church home as an office space. He needs a large work area and storage for books and office supplies. Jung would like a desk to replace the kitchen table he has been using for work. He would like to keep a sitting area for conversation and reading. He prefers a calm, work-oriented design and color palette. Designer Christie Leu divides the long room into areas for working and relaxing.
Eileen and Abas Adenan would like a less traditional look for the 20-by-17-foot dining room in their Annandale home. They want to keep a table and chairs for occasional dinners when entertaining but also would like to incorporate a sitting area near the window. They prefer to keep the window treatments and artwork but are willing to get rid of everything else in the room, particularly the light fixture.
Nick and Patsy Acheson are ready to update the 11-by-25-foot basement family room of their Arlington home. The kids have grown up and moved out, and the Achesons want a relaxing space for watching television, playing games and pursuing hobbies. They also want to use the space as an office. They aren’t sure how they should arrange the furniture around the many built-in bookcases and the existing wet bar.
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".
