Like so many Coloradans, Peter Anderson has been crisscrossing the American West for years — cruising along in an old bug or beat-up Dodge, following the ribbon of pavement into the horizon even as echoes of Jack Kerouac haunt the rear-view mirror. (This happens to writers. Beat poets follow when you go on the road.) The road offers perspective, one that changes over time. In his new essay collection “Heading Home,” Anderson faces Kerouac’s phantom as a man of letters would; he writes to him.
They’re Colorado’s most iconic peaks, and if you haven’t already climbed one, it’s probably on your to-do list — after all, hiking 14,000-foot peaks, or fourteeners, is a rite of passage in this state. People have skied all 53 (or more) of the fourteeners in winter, climbed stable spring snow to the summits. But for most of us, the peak season comes in summer, when the snow fades in late June, bringing the most straightforward access to our state’s highest summits.
Chuck Klosterman did not pause in the middle of the interview to take a call from Justin Timberlake (this happened when he interviewed Taylor Swift and “J TIMB” lit up her phone), nor did he send me to a nearby coffee shop while he went to a potluck (which happened when he interviewed Stephen Malkmus, former frontman of Pavement).
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".
