We love this polyglot collection from the Positive Lexicography, an international trove of “bliss” words curated by Tim Lomas, a lecturer at the University of East London. Lomas’ work-in-progress contains words and phrases that hint at experiences that bring humans joy. The twist? Most aren’t translatable to English. We dug in, found the ones that are especially apropos of an active, outdoor life, and added our take.
THESE BRANDS were born and raised in North America and many of the goods are still manufactured stateside. Legacy? Heritage? Sure. They’re companies with rich backstories whose products have become the stuff of folklore. The following iconic items should be rugged enough to last generations. So buy them with your legacy in mind. Woolrich’s wearable woolens have long been valued for their craftsmanship, durability, good looks, and of course, their warmth.
THINGS DIDN’T WORK OUT quite as planned in the individual freestyle sprint for Kikkan Randall in Sochi. At the same time, things worked out precisely right. Though she was far removed from her usual gold medal form, Kikkan’s influence was writ large on the sprint course, in the form of Jessie Diggins, Ida Sargent and Sophie Caldwell.
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".
