In the world of ultra high-end audio, where 5 and 6-figure price tags are common, Simaudio is no stranger. For 34 years, they’ve been crafting amplifiers, preamplifiers, and disc players. The assertion is, according to their website, that they are “recognized as one of the few who have successfully transcended beyond science into bringing you the spirit of a musical peformance [sic].
Your subwoofer sounds better in some spots than others. But, how do you find where it performs best? Use the “Subwoofer Crawl” trick to improve the sound of your sub for no cost. When people first get a home theater system with a dedicated subwoofer, they are often told that, unlike the other speakers in your system that have more precise rules on placement, a sub can be placed “anywhere”. While that’s somewhat true, your subwoofer will still perform better in some spots than others.
Don’t get sidetracked by the presidential election. If you care about the cost of your rent and tuition, your access to high speed internet and marijuana policy, then you’d better be prepared to #votelocal. I say this as a Western employee and former city councilor. It’s easy to think that the presidential election is the only reason to turn up at the polls. There’s no shortage of media coverage when it comes to that embarrassing circus.
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".
