When Frances Hammers moved into her home 15 years ago, the Crescent Hill cottage wasn't exactly her style. After traveling to Europe and rediscovering her love of her French heritage, Hammers knew she wanted to bring her love of the French countryside to the States. She started reading countless materials on interior design and with a little help from her friends in the design business, put her vision to the test.
In just 2 1/2 years, Sara and William Osborne have transformed their 1951 Cape Cod-style home in Audubon from outdated to classy and cool. Decorating and updating her home was a catch-22 for Sara, who is a designer at Barry Wooley Designs, 835 E. Main St. She sees all the interior design trends firsthand and knows what looks great, but she says her job can lead to some indecisiveness on her part.
After California legalized marijuana for recreational use, late night host Jimmy Kimmel played a little game last night called "Who's High?" The "Jimmy Kimmel Live" crew stopped three people on Hollywood Boulevard in L.A. and put them to the test to see which one had recently, uh, smoked. There was an aspiring YouTuber (yes, really), a squinty landscaper and our new friend Clay, a Louisville pizza maker — which is suspicious enough on the surface.
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".
