An infographic on the Phoenix Association of Realtors website revealed that millennials—here defined as those born between 1976 and 2004—have actually been the largest group of homebuyers for the past three years in a row. And this number is only going to increase, especially since so many millennials haven’t entered the housing market yet.
Water has an incredibly soothing quality—the tranquility of the clear blue sea just can’t be replicated. But what if you could actually live underwater and experience that same idyllic feeling year round? Well, if you’re willing to invest a pretty hefty penny, you can: Forty glass-walled, underwater villas are being created off the coast of Dubai, and they’re set for completion by 2018.
The result? Breathable, silky soft sheets and pillowcases you don’t feel guilty sleeping on. "Over 13 million tons of textile waste end up in landfills every year, which averages to about 70 pounds per person," says Page. "Out of those textiles, bed linens account for 5 percent of the makeup of all landfills in the world." In fact, the company is so environmentally conscious, it even gives you a simple way to return your old sheets, so they can be recycled or upcycled sustainably by Blaynk itself.
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".
