Where do all the mannequins end up when a store closes down? That's probably something you've never thought about before, but when a store closes its doors, it has to do something with all that leftover inventory, whether its selling it or tossing it out. The retail industry is going through growing pains. Consumers are buying online more than in person. Tech has made retailers question what to do with physical stores, and if they even need them.
Lack of warmth is a real issue for millions of people around the globe. For infants born preterm, the World Health Organization (WHO) says the inability to keep warm on their own can lead to health problems and even death. Enter: Grace Hsia and her startup, Warmilu, which has developed a reusable heat pack that generates warmth in seconds. "I started as a material science engineer at the University of Michigan," Hsia told Circa.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the smartest of them all? The smart mirror is, of course. Smart mirrors are busting onto the scene and you will never be able to shop for another face serum or mascara the same way again. Let me put it to you this way: We tried a test version of the HiMirror Mini at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year, and after it snapped my picture, the smart beauty device determined that I'm developing a decent amount of fine lines.
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".
