hey don’t make them like they used to” has been said about everything from cars to movies. And, of course, there are always those who would argue newer is better. When it comes to buying a house, however, Nick and Ariele Scodro are very much of the first camp. The young couple, who have a baby daughter, ended their search for a new home when they found themselves romanced by a 1927 condo in Lincoln Park, impressed with the structure’s level of detail and quality of materials.
eciding to scratch relocation plans and remain in the apartment they’d occupied for 30 years, a couple hired Juan Montoya to revamp and update. He put all their furnishings in storage so he could first address their desire for graciously proportioned rooms. Opening up the entry hall and corridor to create a spacious gallery immediately accomplished this.
rom our first meeting, it was clear that his energy, attention to detail and view on eclectic contemporary style were ideally suited for my personality,” says homeowner Bala Ragothaman of interior designer Anthony Michael. “Besides, they were a full-service interior design firm that could wrap their arms around architecture, design, build and install–traits that turned out to be a blessing as the project took a turn!”That turn was the discovery of mold by an electrician.
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".
