A strategy by the United Auto Workers to organize foreign-owned plants took a big hit this week, with workers at a Chinese-owned factory in southwestern Ohio soundly rejecting membership in the union, the UAW said. An estimated 1,500 workers at the Fuyao Glass Industry Group plant in Moraine, a suburb of Dayton, voted union representation down by an almost two-to-one margin, with 868 votes against and 444 votes for, the UAW said on Thursday.
The coming months are expected to bring a wetter-than-usual winter across much of the country, likely fraying many nerves behind the wheels on U.S. roadways. A new survey from insurance company Allstate found that 35 percent of U.S. drivers say wet winter driving stresses them out, and nearly a half, or 48 percent, are concerned by the prospect. That's especially true in the Midwest, where 69 percent of drivers expressed particular concern about contending with wet wintery conditions.
Spurred on by the critical and notorious financial success of the manual-only 911 R, Porsche has given the latest incarnation of the 911 GT3 its clutch pedal back, a move that's been well-received, according to a report from CarAdvice. Despite this, the storied sports car maker says that its most hardcore offerings, the RS models, will remain PDK-exclusive affairs.
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".
