With the internet guaranteeing that every insane athletic endeavor can be shared worldwide, it makes sense that extreme athletes should find new ways to produce the most clickable headlines. Today, windsurfer Levi Siver has achieved that goal. The 37-year old from Idaho decided to take his board where no windsurfer has ever gone before: the mountains of Rishiri Island in Hokkaido, Japan.
Sleeping in a cheap bed is a lot easier for me than foregoing a tasty meal out when I travel. No matter where I end up, I am always on the lookout for the best local eats, which is why I have to be careful when I travel to the pricier destinations. Fortunately CreditLoan.com just published a map showing the most expensive and cheapest cities to eat out in across the country.
The coolest thing about ice hotels (ba-dum-tss) is that, by virtue of their material, they must be rebuilt to some extent every year. The Snowvillage hotel in Finland is one of several Scandinavian ice hotels famous for creating what is essentially a building-sized body of new modern art every year. For nearly twenty years, Snowvillage has offered guests uncommon spaces filled with individually crafted ice sculptures fitting a particular theme.
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".
