On Sunday, September 17, 150 hungry runners gathered in Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn to live their best lives in the 8th annual New York City Pizza Run. The 5K race was way more delicious than standard competitions. Yes, it involved running three laps around the park, amounting to 3.1 miles, but it also had an extra-tasty rule: Runners had to eat a slice of pizza between laps one and two, and another between laps two and three.
Earlier this month, Sam Mellor, a 27-year-old living in Sarasota, Florida, recognized the two years that have passed since her stillborn son Alek's birth and death. "I think about him all the time, I love him to the ends of this earth," she wrote in her commemorative Instagram post (below) featuring her second son, Drew, now 9 months old, and a photo of the baby she lost. "The best I can do is live to honor his name, be the best I can be, and show his little brother how much we love them both."
Because Katy Miles is a pretttty active 17-year-old — she hits the gym four or five times a week — you'd never guess the UK-based teen's body literally runs on just one kidney: Cancer struck her left kidney when she was 4 years old. But after 12 years in remission, Katy ran her first half marathon last weekend to raise money for the disease that nearly took her life. When Katy was a young child, her doctors insisted she had constipation, nothing more.
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".
