Elon Musk has raged against soul-crushing Los Angeles traffic for years. Now he’s doing something about it. The Boring Company filed an application this week to create an underground tunnel adjacent to the 405 Freeway on the city’s west side, the first such project for the billionaire tech industrialist’s latest venture. An application was filed with Los Angeles’ Bureau of Engineering on Tuesday for a tunnel to run from the San Fernando Valley south to Westwood, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Divergent 3D, a Los Angeles startup backed by Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing, raised just over $65 million in a funding round that will help it complete an experimental factory equipped with 3-D metal printers and techniques adapted from the aerospace industry that's designed to dramatically cut the cost and environmental impact of auto production.
Elon Musk’s latest venture, a plan to speed up urban travel with subterranean tunnel networks, hasn’t broken ground on any commercial projects, but The Boring Company has racked up $300,000 of revenue -- from promotional ball caps. A week after the billionaire tech industrialist showed off his vision for a 21st century Semi truck and a restyled Tesla Roadster, Musk tweeted about how sales of the $20 hats were going.
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".
