Every time you apply the brakes, they convert a bit of their material into dust. Bosch's latest creation attempts to minimize that dust while making sure the brakes still, you know, brake. Created by Bosch's Buderus Guss subsidiary, the iDisc's whole goal is to greatly reduce brake dust-related emissions. A tungsten-carbide coating is baked into a traditional cast iron brake disc, which can allegedly reduce brake dust by up to 90 percent compared to standard iron units.
Attaching tracks to a standard vehicle is a pretty fun thing to do -- Nissan had a great time doing it with its Winter Warrior vehicles. But Nissan isn't the only company slapping tracks on its vehicles. GMC this week unveiled the GMC Sierra 2500HD All Mountain Concept. It's built specifically to tackle snowy inclines, and not only does it sport the equipment to handle that task, it looks like it's ready to beat up the mountain and ask for its lunch money.
We're just one week away from the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, so Subaru's latest teaser will probably be one of the last you'll see before actual cars take the stage. Subaru gave the public a peek inside the forthcoming 2019 Subaru Ascent three-row SUV, ahead of its debut on Nov. 28. There isn't much in the way of surprises here -- there are, in fact, three rows of seats, four doors, some windows and some nice-looking brown leather. It's a car. Subaru isn't reinventing the wheel here.
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".
