Vintage furniture and accessories shops inspire the dashing interior designer Michael Berman—and help round out his wardrobe. When not dreaming up elegant living spaces or timeless, modern furniture and wallpaper designs, he can be found dressed up and behind the wheel of a classic car, cruising through Hollywood or Palm Springs, some Dean Martin on the radio. But this man about town isn’t stuck in the past.
After roughly 42 hours of new research and real-world tests, including dozens of times drying off after showers, recording the speeds of towels drying, and weighing and measuring towels for fiber loss and shrinkage, we think Target’s Fieldcrest Luxury Solid Towel is the best for most people. This towel was the runner-up in our original review, and we’ve consistently found that it feels nearly as soft and outperforms those twice the price.
“I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was doing global work when the world was starting to become global,” says Madeline Weinrib, sipping a cappuccino in her expansive Flatiron district atelier, which is akin to a modern-day souk. The question posited was how Weinrib, a name now synonymous with lush ikat textiles and graphic rugs, became a harbinger of an aesthetic movement centered on ethnic textiles that any design layperson is conversant in today.
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".
