Ah, the A-frame. You might remember the quirky triangular structures from vacations of yore, full of shag carpet and tiny lofts cramped with beds. But thanks to Instagram, nostalgia, and the allure of a certain way of life, the A-frame is back and better than ever. From coast to coast, entrepreneurial property owners are renovating—and sometimes even building—A-frames in order to rent them to architecture-loving vacationers.
Adventure vans come in many shapes and sizes, from pop-tops that can sleep a whole family to cozy custom builds that offer a taste of home. It’s rare, however, to see Class B vans decked out with a lot of custom woodworking. Sure, plenty of rigs use wood—or maybe a linoleum that looks like wood—on the floors, and there are lots of teardrop trailers that favor wood as a building material. But RV makers mainly use laminate countertops, vinyl flooring, and plastics to keep things sleek and clean.
Over the past few weeks, much of the eastern United States has endured record-breaking cold temperatures and a blustery snowstorm called the ‘bomb cyclone.’ But venture further west and you’ll find a different story: States like Colorado, Utah, and California are in the midst of a warm, dry winter that is affecting resort towns and worrying forecasters. Colorado—one of the country’s most popular ski destinations with about 13 million skier visits each year—has been especially hard hit.
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".
