Anyone who has been reading car magazines since about the mid-1970s would recognize the logo for Dave Bean Engineering. It looks like Dave’s initials fashioned into a slot-car track, and it generally appeared in the smaller ads back in the cheap seats of pretty much every car magazine I read as a kid.
Sure, Scottsdale is a one-percenter’s playground. Gooding and RM Sotheby’s were headlined this year by Jaguar D-types bid to more than $8 million, and the bidding increments—or the amount the auctioneers are asking from the next bidder—are often more than most people make in a year. If such money porn isn’t your thing, take heart, as there were many deals to be had in Scottsdale for average Joes and Janes.
The March 1966 debut of the Lamborghini Miura set the tiny Italian speed salon on the path it follows today: purveyor of outlandish mid-engine attention hogs, built for the most dedicated extroverts. The Miura begat the Countach, which begat the Diablo, which begat the subsequent Murcielago and Aventador, as Lamborghini steadily departed from its founder’s original plan of producing faster and better GT cars than his rival in Maranello.
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".
