From the earliest days of the Mesopotamians, humans have been searching for ways to improve shared spaces, usually creating a central square around which other structures were built. But no civilization has had the benefit of developing city innovation around a digital square — the backbone of the smart city trend. But first what is a smart city?
Many factors influence this trend. One of them is the discouraging process of buying a home. Based on a survey of 2,000 US adults, 71% consider purchasing a home an overwhelming process starting with house-hunting. Thatâ€™s followed by the negotiation phase, which requires compromises to close the deal. Owners.com, an online brokerage company, reports that 51% would compromise on a cheaper home with maintenance issues that could easily be solved.
A slender gadget that exudes ultimate sophistication; the ASUS ZenBook 3 ($1999) is a true marvel sculpted to perfection. This slender damsel in cocktail blue has edges adorned in golden, giving the laptop a hint of tastefulness and royalty. The 11.9 mm thick ZenBook 3 may be the answer Windows was seeking ever since the launch of the Apple 12-inch MacBook.
This is one reason why I predict that User Experience (UE) will be one of the biggest growth opportunities of the future. Hawaii’s missile alert interface had a one-word difference between sending a test alert and a real one https://buff.ly/2DHf3rMhttps://t.co/c5eLx89ujQ
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".
