On paper, Nike's ambitious attempt to create history's first sub-2-hour marathon came up short. But when Eliud Kipchoge finished within 26 tantalizing seconds of crossing a barrier once thought unbreakable, even the most skeptical observers were left in awe. On May 6, on a Formula 1 racetrack in Monza, Italy, the Kenyan runner took advantage of Nike's science, innovation and military-like planning (not to mention his own off-the-charts talent) to cover 26.2 miles in 2 hours and 25 seconds.
Jenny Simpson and Nick Willis both proved that experience counts when it comes to running the New Balance 5th Avenue Mile. Simpson scored a record sixth title down the famed New York City boulevard after Willis notched his fourth victory in the event, staged by New York Road Runners on a picture-perfect day. With the temperature at 70 degrees, low humidity and a generous wind at their backs, both the men’s and women’s professional races were exceptionally fast.
The final battle is about to begin. Falling Skies is heading into its fifth and final season this summer, and in a new teaser trailer from TNT, it appears that "nothing will be as it was." So says the resilient hero of this alien invasion epic, Tom Mason, played by Noah Wyle. As Season 4 came to a close last August, the 2nd Mass freedom fighters managed to destroy the invading Espheni's power core on the moon.
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".
