Mazda is working hard on its new SkyActiv-X engine, using technology that many people think is the Holy Grail of gasoline engines. The SkyActiv-X engine promises the power and clean emissions of a gasoline engine with fuel economy approaching that of a diesel. What is this new technology, and how does it work? For years, engineers have been trying to design a gasoline-powered compression-ignition engine.
The first production Tesla Model 3s will be handed over to their owners at a special launch event in California, which will take place in the early hours of Saturday morning for interested UK parties. It’s an early start, but if you want to see the first batch of road-ready Model 3s, you’ll be able to tune into a livesteam of the event on Tesla’s main website from 4:45am tomorrow.
Smart car shoppers rely on the EPA’s fuel economy tests to predict what a new car will cost them in fuel—but how reliable are those numbers plastered on every new car’s window sticker? Motor Trend and Emissions Analytics developed the Real MPG test to find real-world fuel economy, and we found that many cars actually outperformed their EPA estimates. Here are the best overachievers. If you were expecting a list full of micro-engined econo-weenies, you can banish that thought right now.
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".
