He left advanced base camp, on the northern, Chinese side of the mountain, at 2 a.m. and reached the peak at 9 p.m. In doing so, he set the fastest known time up the mountain, breaking his own record (which he set five days earlier on Monday, May 22) of 26 hours.
At 8:15 a.m. in Nepal, Kami Rita Sherpa stood on top of Everest for the 21st time. He tied a record held by Apa Sherpa and Phurba Tashi Sherpa. Kami Rita, 47, is a longtime guide with Alpine Ascents, a Seattle-based outfitter. He led a team of 11 other climbers to the summit early on the morning of May 27th. According to Alpine Ascents sirdar Lakpa Rita, a 17-time summiter and Kami Rita's brother, the team left Camp IV for the summit at 11 p.m. on May 26.
On Tuesday, the Nepal Mountaineering Association announced that it would undertake the most complex recovery mission to ever be attempted on Everest. The goal: retrieve the body of Ravi Kumar, a 27-year-old Indian climber who went missing on Saturday after summiting. Kumar reportedly became too weak to walk during the descent and his guide abandoned him near the summit at around 8 p.m., leaving him with supplemental oxygen and descending the mountain to call for a rescue.
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".
