Miriam Friedman installed new flooring in the 16-by-17-foot den of her Silver Spring home after a flood but hasn’t replaced the furniture she lost. She wants to furnish and decorate the room as a comfortable hangout and workspace for teens and adults. She prefers Scandinavian-style pieces and would like to include beanbag chairs. Her ideal space would have a calming, neutral feel with colorful accents.
For about two weeks, the DVR in our house will get a rest while we devote our kids’ screen time allotment to the Winter Olympics. I couldn’t be happier about this. Not just because sports are fun and they get to cheer on Team USA, but because I’m finding tons of valuable life lessons crammed between commercial breaks. For example:* Even the people who are the best in the world at what they do don’t get it right every single time. See Miller, Bode. * When you stumble, get back up and keep going.
Susan Noble had to rebuild the 30-by-12-foot screened porch on her Arnold home after a tree crushed it two years ago. She bought some furniture but lost her motivation as the weather turned colder, and she never finished decorating. She wants a teen- and dog-friendly space with room for outdoor meals and hanging out and needs to work around the three sets of sliding glass doors that lead into the home. She wants to incorporate the dining table and the large swivel chair into the new design.
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".
