The cycle gets more sickeningly familiar by the day. In the past few weeks alone, a deluge of men in positions of power have been revealed as abusers who knew no consequences, in some cases for decades. The most high profile of these stories have come from the world of celebrity, but the running community can’t pretend we have no role in the conversation or in changing this violent cycle. For years now, we’ve had certain cycles of our own on repeat.
The Black Lungs take their name in tribute to the coal miners of Cape Breton, where the group first ran as a team in the Cabot Trail Relay. According to statements by the founders, the group derived inspiration in those miners’ demonstration of hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and a willingness to take risks for reward. Lyndsay Tessier, who has trained with the Black Lungs since 2013, may put the men of the deeps to shame.
The story of the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon was about the second half of the race. As Krista DuChene and company repeated on the live broadcast, humidity was gradually increasing and was going to be a significant variable from 21K on. The elite men went out hard in pursuit of the Canadian All-comers record of 2:06:54, set by Ethiopia’s Yemane Tsegaye at Ottawa in 2014. The lead pack came through in 62:35, about 10 seconds ahead of the pace for the record.
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".
