KAILUA-KONA — It took a little longer than he planned — a whole other day, in fact — but Bike Man made it to the summit of Mauna Kea over the weekend. It was difficult, Brian Fulghum, known around Kailua-Kona for wearing a costume and cape, said of the ride from Kailua Pier to the top of the 13,796-foot-tall mountain. But in the bigger picture, it was a piece of cake, too. “Knowing how to get the most out of life with a physical challenge is more difficult,” said Fulghum, who is partially blind.
KAILUA-KONA — It took a little longer than he planned — another whole day, in fact — but ‘Bike Man’ made it to the summit of Mauna Kea during the weekend. It was difficult, Brian Fulghum, known around Kailua-Kona for wearing a costume and cape, said about the ride from Kailua Pier to the top of the 13,796-foot-tall mountain. But in the bigger picture, it was a piece of cake, too.
KAILUA-KONA — The plan is to leave Kailua Pier at 4 a.m. and pedal the Walmart bike up one of the connectors, like Hina Lani Street, to Mamalahoa Highway. Once connected, Brian Fulghum will keep churning until he turns right on to Saddle Road, the modern highway in the shadow of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. There, he’ll stop and put on his cape. He might hold off on the rest of his yellow and red costume because it’s like a sauna in there, and he’ll still have a mountain to wheel up.
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".
