Jerry Ross holds the record for number of flights to space - seven - all aboard the now defunct Space Shuttle. Only one other astronaut shares that distinction: Ad Astra's Franklin Chang Diaz. Ross retired from NASA in 2012. His book "Spacewalker" (2013) is the remarkable story of his life. Cover quotes from the late Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, and the late Gene Cernan, last man on the moon, are testament to that. Jim Clash: People want to know: Has anybody had sex in space?
New York, with all of its cultural virtues, has its own set of unique problems given the concentration of so many people in such a small space. The holidays, if anything, exacerbate the situation. I'm not sure if it's just me, but lately folks seem far more preoccupied with themselves and much less mindful of those around them. You may call me grumpy, but how many of you have noticed the escalation of such obnoxious behavior??
Alan Bean, 85, now paints lunar landscapes rather than experiencing them firsthand. Bean, of course, was the fourth astronaut on the moon as part of Apollo 12. This month, it is 48 years since Bean made his historic journey to another world. A white back we caught up with him for some questions about his unique experience - only 12 men have walked on the lunar surface. Jim Clash: Talk about fear and how you deal with it. Alan Bean: You learn to deal with fear somewhat when you’re a pilot.
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".
