'Wave House' architect translates nature's forms into residential designs
Life’s eternal question of whether to stay or go (in jobs, relationships — and homes) is the premise behind HGTV’s long-running “Love It or List It,” hosted by interior designer Hilary Farr and real estate agent David Visentin. Farr remodels a couple’s outdated home, tailoring the look to current styles, while Visentin hunts for a new residence that can best Farr’s reveal and entice the couple to list and move out.
“Two Chicks and a Hammer” smartly sums up HGTV’s “Good Bones,” hosted by the mother-daughter team Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak. That’s also the name of the duo’s Indianapolis-based home renovation business, launched in 2008. The pair hunt down battered homes in bleaker Indianapolis neighborhoods, transforming them with an average budget of $180,000 — with help from some rough-and-ready demo teams.
Not many Beverly Hills homes have been compared to a Wienerschnitzel hot dog franchise. That’s what owner Carol Surface termed her four-bedroom, four-bathroom 1964 home before a remodel that concluded in 2008. The artist also spent the last decade updating the 2,773-square-foot home, now listed for $2.6335 million. Surface and husband Hank bought the home in 2004 for $1.36 million after she spied potential beyond a stingy entry and an A-shaped roofline flanked by fake brick.
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".
