One of my favorite gifts to both give and receive is a book. It may seem passé in this world of digital media, but I think the fact that our lives are lived increasingly online makes books especially luxurious and gift-worthy. Here are a few examples of real estate topics writ large that would be welcome at any holiday gathering this year. Cabin Porn: Inspiration for Your Quiet Place Somewhere, by Zach Klein and Steven Leckart, with photography from Noah Kalina.
Living through a turbulent century she has seen great people rise and fall but she has always lived by her own rules. Her daughter Barbara McManus, 70, said: “Mum was always a hard worker, but she made sure she enjoyed herself whenever she could. “Maybe that’s the secret to living for 100 years. “She also likes to have a glass of brandy or port most days. That probably helped as well.”Mrs White, known to her friends as Meg, married her war hero partner Tom after serving in the Second World war.
A long-simmering proposal colloquially known as “MLS of Choice” moved forward today as an official recommendation to the Board of Directors from the 2017 Multiple Listing Issues & Policies Committee. The recommendation put forward by the committee would require that MLSs allow agents to choose which MLS(s) they want to subscribe to.
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".
