Jose Gabriel Perez, 51, is an upholsterer at the St. Regis New York in ManhattanQ. What kinds of furnishings do you repair at the St. Regis? A. I work mostly on chairs, sofas, ottomans, cushions and curtains. One of our engineering staff will call me on a walkie-talkie and tell me about an item that needs work, and I’ll go and take a look. Where is your workshop? In the basement. It has a workbench and three sewing machines.
We’re in the Innovation and Design Building, a 1.4-million-square-foot former military and industrial building on the Boston Harbor. By our calculations, it’s about the size of the John Hancock Tower turned on its side, or just under six-and-a-half Manhattan north-south blocks. We moved here two years ago. The building is full of innovative organizations, so there’s lots of energy. 1. By air or by waterOur offices are on the seventh floor, close to the eastern end of the building.
My art and the food have equal weight. Good art conditions require the winter weather and waves, to prep the surface. I draw in the sand with a stick and rake, and take aerial photos of the drawings before they disappear. I also do huge designs of vehicle tracks. I’ve exhibited at MoMA PS1, and a number of companies have commissioned artwork from me. O.I.T.F. requires the seasonal harvest, and good weather for being outdoors.
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".
