Siemens will build a stretch of electric highway on the A5 Autobahn in Germany to cater for electrified trucks. Siemens’ system works in a similar way to trams and trains in various parts of the world with an overhead contact line providing power to the truck through a pantograph. The ribbon of electrified highway will stretch for 6.2 miles (10 km) in the German state of Hasse.
The Lamborghini Countach was built for a staggering 16 years and is without a doubt one of the most over-the-top vehicles ever conceived, as Doug DeMuro recently discovered. First shown to the world at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show, the Countach was designed by Bertone and was the first Lamborghini fitted with the now-trademark scissor doors. To say it is an important vehicle in the history of Lamborghini would be an understatement.
If you want to make a car stand out, you head to West Coast Customs, the tuning shop made famous by Pimp My Ride. Recently, the customizer was handed the keys to both a BMW i8 and a BMW i3 and set about modifying them so they almost perfectly match and really stand out on the road. The most obvious point of difference between the duo and a regular i3 or i8 are the satin blue chrome wraps adorning both.
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".
