My son Tyler first told me he wanted to be a mountaineer after watching Walking the Great Divide, a documentary on hiking the Continental Divide Trail. He was 6, and until then acted like any other kid: soccer, swimming, and playing with friends. Suddenly, there was a new Tyler. He was driven. He’d be waiting for me at the door, day after day, to go running to get ready for the mountains. I told him if he stayed dedicated, I’d take him up Mt. Whitney.
High noon comes to Queens as locals hustle south along 167th Street to bear witness to a rite of spring. It is 70 degrees and sunny, but devotees of the I.S. 8 Classic, a long-running prep basketball showcase that dates back decades, gather indoors. Four men pop open beach chairs by the baseline inside a tinderbox at Intermediate School 8. A hundred more onlookers squeeze into four rows of wooden bleachers.
Mike Tyson's second memoir â€” "Iron Ambition: My Life with Cus D'Amato â€” traces back to his days being bullied and abused in Brownsville, through his stops in a Bronx juvenile detention center and into a Catskill boxing ring. It walks readers up the steps to the Gramercy Gym on 14th Street, into Tyson's corner and over to a Victorian house that doubled as the site of Tyson's transformation into violent pugilist.
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".
