Warm, elegant, and delicate all sum up the new MUSA light by Vibia. Designed by Kristoffer Fagerström and Charlotte Ackemar of Note Design Studio, the lamp is a break from tradition. “When you design a lamp you have basic components like the electrical cord and light source,” says Fagerström. For LEDs, a metal dissipater is one of these necessary parts, helping to keep the light cool, but it can be unsightly.
When he was just 19, Andrew McPherson suffered a spinal cord injury diving into shallow water. “I went from being super active, an auto mechanic and wilderness guide leading youth groups on rock climbing trips, to not being able to even lift my arms,” he says of the accident that left him a quadriplegic. “I couldn’t work on cars or do anything that I enjoyed. I had zero hobbies left.”That all changed when a friend’s dad, a science teacher, introduced him to maker magazines.
The composition of concrete has undergone a few tweaks here and there, but its cold, hard, and gray aesthetic has been for the most part unchanged since the early 19th century—until translucent forms of concrete started cropping up in the past 20 years. Zospeum, a new material displayed at last year’s Dutch Design Week, is the latest iteration.
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".
