Iconic of the American West, mule deer can be seasonal migrators, but those who call Yosemite Valley home stay there year round; like these two beauties photographed in the sunlight by Rollie Rodriguez in the meadow at the base of the majestic El Capitan. Mule deer are unique in their gait; a bounding bounce called "stotting." All four hooves push off the ground and land at the same time. With each hopping bound, they may jump as high as two feet and as far as 15 feet.
Our photo of the day shows the fastest bird in the world at rest. The word "peregrine" comes from the Latin for pilgrim or foreign traveler, and indeed these incredible falcons can be found all over the world. Of their many impressive feats, perhaps they are best known as the fastest bird in the world. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology explains that their average cruising speed is 24 to 33 mph, with turbo boosts up to 67 mph when in pursuit of a meal.
If by some quirk of a wormhole Einstein could have known Hawking, here’s what we think he would have been pleased by. While clearly the world’s most famous theoretical physicists weren’t carbon copies of one another, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking nonetheless had a few things in common.
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".
