The moment I'm in the water I want out. It's not so much the biting cold that gets me but the sudden weakness. My legs turn numb and useless, my arms limp and heavy while my chest feels like it's been whacked with an icy sledgehammer.
"What I put on the plate is not food, but rather my spirit and passion," declares Lee Jong Guk, a reclusive self-taught chef and fervent champion of authentic Korean cooking. And judging by the dishes presented, Lee has a profound lust for gastronomy, with his complex culinary creations that could easily be presented as art.
Just looking down on the 'Streif' is enough to make my heart stop. Teetering on the edge of this notorious, nail-biting ski course, I soon understand why it's widely regarded as the toughest and scariest downhill ski course on the planet.
Oh, RadioShack, spurned by shoppers, loathed by investors, mocked ( mocked, mocked) and teetering on bankruptcy. But that's not my RadioShack. Or the legacy I'll embrace. Sure, today's ubiquitous stores are bursting with cheap burner phones, generic chargers, knock-off robotic toys, and every nearly forgotten thing from media's pre-digital age.
Today, a senior ISIS Public Retaliations Officer and the organisation's Chief Torturer Abu-Hassan bin-harem announced that a new kind of warfare may soon be on our hands. "We have recently obtained a new type of weapon. Our Long-Acoustic Range Device (LARD) is capable of damage beyond anyone's wildest imagination."
A feast for the eyes as well as the palate, mastering the art of eating in Japan takes some practice. Earn your seafood stripes in Tokyo's famous Tsukiji Market, move on to the city's coolest sushi spots, then kick back with some ritual kaiseki cuisine, while admiring views of nearby Mount Fuji.
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
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".
