When Adam Shoalts talks about travelling solo, he doesn’t mean in the “I backpacked across Europe to find myself” sense. The modern-day explorer and author of the bestselling book Alone Against the North: An Expedition into the Unknown (about a previous expedition into the Hudson Bay lowlands) just crossed 4,000 kilometres of remote, Arctic mainland Canada with no one to keep him company but the wolves and bears bold enough to investigate him and his canoe.
After 4,000 kilometres of trekking over muskeg and canoeing up and down countless icy rivers and lakes, sustaining himself on more than 1,100 granola bars and a few bush plane-delivered food crates, it has been confirmed that explorer Adam Shoalts has reached Baker Lake, Nunavut, and the end of the epic Trans-Canadian Arctic Expedition. It all started in Old Crow, northern Yukon, on May 13.
For the last 50 years, ornithologist, pediatrician and Manitoba Liberal politician Jon Gerrard has been studying a thriving population of about 100 bald eagles on northern Saskatchewan’s Besnard Lake. Elston Dzus, an ecologist with Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries Inc., has been part of the ongoing research since 1984, when during his undergraduate at the University of Saskatchewan he surveyed all eagle and waterbird populations on Besnard and other nearby boreal lakes.
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".
