After: For this Seattle family, the big draw is the view. Although the old space had windows opening up to the epic vista of Lake Washington, they didn’t do it justice. Weihs stepped in and gave the kitchen a complete makeover —leaving out upper cabinets, raising the roofline, and adding color and texture — without modifying the actual footprint.
If flowers do wonders for brightening up a room, imagine what they can do for your mood when you’re surrounded by hundreds of them. As cliché as the childhood fantasy may be, there is just something so utterly joyful about prancing through a field of flowers, picking a fresh bouquet, or simply admiring a live bunch up close. Hit the road now to catch sunflowers at their peak or plan a drive to see peonies, tulips, and lavender in the coming seasons.
The idea of a prissy girl hiking in heels, shrieking at the site of a bug, and carting a suitcase of beauty supplies on a camping trip — once portrayed as the norm — is now known to be the exception. Our generation has been quick to embrace the bare-minimal appeal of the #digitaldetox, #keepitwild, #in2nature-life. In fact, a recent study by outdoor master REI shows that most women feel freer and happier outside, and a whopping 73 percent say they’d like to spend more time in nature.
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".
