Earlier this fall, we met up with freestyle skier Mikael Kingsbury. He has been dominant on the World Cup circuit, putting in win after win this season, and is going after a gold medal at these Games, after coming second to another Canadian, Alexandre Bilodeau, in 2014. He told us that he had enjoyed the test event held here in Pyeongchang, and that while it was cold, that’s how he likes it.
The Olympic facilities are split up in two areas. A mountain cluster and a coastal cluster. We got a chance to visit both, and try to find our way around. Gangneung is the town where hockey, curling and skating events will unfold. A few streets over from the venues, there is a bustling market, where merchants sell dried fish, fried chicken, and pancakes. There we found a 72 year old woman, tending her stall.
We got off to a somewhat early start, a five a.m. departure for a shoot a few hours away, so I hoped for a roadside coffee stop. The only open shop was a convenience store that sells hot coffee (pre-heated) packaged in a metal bottle. It is not the way I often drink my cup a day, but it reminded me of a kind gesture on our first trip to South Korea. My cameraman Dave and I were here in the fall to cover escalating nuclear tensions, and learned about the tough logistics of the time difference.
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".
