Just a jog has never been Ben Nephew’s style. He once ran the length of Rhode Island, for fun. Between competing in ultramarathons and setting dozens of fastest known time (FKT) records all around New England, Nephew estimates he’s run 70,000 miles over the course of his life—roughly equivalent to three times around the equator. But the more miles he accrues, the more he realizes that traditional races aren’t exactly his style. The cost, race logistics and overrun courses don’t excite him.
Meet the father and son paddling the length of the Mississippi to raise awareness for fellow veterans suffering from PTSD and depression. They started in Minnesota, the pastor and the soldier, the father and the son, Jeff and Logan Hastings, both retired Army veterans. Snow still covered the ground as they put their kayaks into Minnesota’s Lake Itasca, the far northern end of the Mississipi River.
From peak bagging, to distance running, mountain athlete Sunny Stroeer is chasing the next challenge. January 23, 2017, Aconcagua, Argentina. Two hundred meters below the summit of the tallest peak in the Americas, Suzanne “Sunny” Stroeer, now on her way back down, is alone and suffering from exercise-induced asthma. As if getting enough air into her lungs at 6,692 meters (21,955 feet)Â isnâ€™t hard enough, her body is working against her, causing her to wheeze and cough violently.
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".
