'Wave House' architect translates nature's forms into residential designs
Peter Paige opted for a gentlemen’s-club look for his Hollywood loft — the kind that British upper-crust chaps frequented in the 19th century. The writer, director and producer began with a wall of art, tucked inside a modernist Hollywood building fit with skewed windows and splashed with a jaunty yellow.
HGTV’s popular renovation show “Home Town,” whisked with buttermilk-smooth “y’all” declarations, launches season two in January with Mississippi hosts Ben and Erin Napier. On the show, shoppers from the small town of Laurel, Miss., buy one of two homes the Napiers select in the once-booming 1890s lumber town (current population: 18,000) and then pay for renovations without seeing the design.
When a backyard dog house or modest cat condo just won’t do, Los Angeles designer Antonio Ballatore transforms homeowners’ residences into elaborate pet playgrounds. Ballatore, who stars on Animal Planet’s “Animal Cribs,” breaks down walls, uproots backyards and renovates basements to build 20-foot-high kitty climbing walls, doggy spas and even an underground pet grotto.
A good summation of the anti-self-improvement craze that's countering the self-improvement craze. Crazed? Yeah, there's nothing wrong with you, and you best get to work on fixing that http://bit.ly/2ENO0u9
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".
