'Wave House' architect translates nature's forms into residential designs
Can Wisconsin transplants strike midcentury-modern gold in the Coachella Valley? That’s the premise that backs HGTV’s “Desert Flippers,” hosted by Eric and Lindsey Bennett. The duo flip about 20 desert homes a year with help from Lindsey’s brother, Mike Schneider. The Bennetts, both 38, moved from Madison to Palm Springs 12 years ago. They now live in Rancho Mirage with their three sons.
The paparazzi aren’t likely to catch up with HGTV star Tarek El Moussa in his favorite room — a luxury yacht, bought with co-star and imminent ex-wife Christina El Moussa. Through it all, the divorcing parents of two continue to film and air their seventh season of HGTV’s “Flip or Flop.”The show’s formula — renovating Orange County homes (some with a viper’s nest of problems) and then showcasing them to gossiping buyers — has been a ratings triumph for the business-savvy real estate couple.
No, these are not doctored photographs. That’s the response artist Dave Lefner often proffers when asked about his reduction linocut prints. We may live in a Photoshopped world, but Lefner creates his buoyant depictions of retro Los Angeles through a laborious hand-printing process Picasso popularized in the 1950s. The resulting prints — often of sun-bleached neon signs with shadows cast by the fading sun — are on display at the Pasadena Museum of California Art through Jan. 7.
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".
