I’ll be heading to Naples, Fla., this weekend with my sister Sheila and I’m so excited. Sure, I’ll rest on the beach but I’ll also be getting in some running, cycling and swimming. Last weekend I was so excited to get in two bike rides due to the milder temps. My first ride was 15 miles on Saturday, after I ran 6.3 miles with my running group and did a tough workout on the compu-trainer at BikeZone the night before. My legs were a bit tired!
The morning of the Chatham in the Fall 10K was super windy and rainy. My sister, Sheila, had stayed over and as we drank our coffee by the fire in my cozy cottage we contemplated whether or not we should do the race. Then we decided to bite the bullet and get ready. At least we could drive to Chatham and pick up our T-shirts and then head out to breakfast if it was still pouring. When we got to the race it was still raining, but not hard. It was also fairly warm in the 50s.
Last night was the Cape Cod Cycling Club (C4) banquet at DiParma in West Yarmouth. About 30 or so attended and I’m surprised so few went when it’s such a great event. With your yearly $30 membership dues you can attend the monthly club meeting at Portside restaurant in Hyannis where they provide a small buffet (drinks are on your own) and a nice meal at the yearly banquet. Plus you get cool swag donated by local bike shops.
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".
