Car lovers may love getting together and waxing poetic about the greatest autos on the planet—you know, rides like the 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder and the 1969 Nissan Skyline GT-R—but one could argue that they love discussing something else even more: the worst cars ever made. Yes, there’s something truly special about terrible design and intolerable engineering that just brings out the best in us.
Unfortunately, finding ones that will last longer than a few months can be tough. But we recently came across the burly bands (or cords, as they call them) from (packages from $195, ). These bands were developed, and are still promoted, for improving shoulder health, eliminating pain, and helping with sports performance mechanics like throwing or swinging motions. But we love them for their quality and ability to become one of the best portable cable machines you can buy.
The sleek device plugs into an outlet, and it has two speakers inside that spread sound uniformly around your room. Use a smartphone app to choose among 15 sounds, and you can customize your experience by telling the app about your sleep space—acoustics will be different depending on the type of flooring you have and the size of your room. If you have a partner who snores or struggle with ringing in your ears, Nightingale will take those factors into consideration as well.
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".
