Variety is the spice of life. You probably heard that from your grandmother, your home economics teacher and your college fling sophomore year. And you know what? They were right. Doing the same thing day in and day out can be detrimental to your well-being. Burger and fries every day for lunch? Lame. Same hairstyle since 1982? Sad. Bought a green Lincoln every other year since the Eisenhower administration? Ugh. You need an intervention.
OK, it’s not a waterbed, but you can be forgiven if you struggle to see anything but water in this photo. That view, right? But designer Jenny Provost of K2 Design kept things wonderfully understated in this master with neutral tones above a lovely striped rug from Kravet that runs perpendicular to the ebony-toned wood flooring. “It visually widens this long room,” says Provost.
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. But when you’re the president and CEO of a major window manufacturer, the windows are the soul of the house. Of course, it helps if those windows are giving occupants a chance to gaze out onto a lovely stretch of Southwest Florida H20, and the new home of Kim and Tim Yaggi (Tim is head of Pella) does just that.
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".
