The Eastern Townships of Quebec, an enclave of rolling hills and pastoral greenery tucked into the southern corner of Canada's French-speaking province, happens to be one of the best places on the continent to witness the splendor of the fall season. Each year, as the cooling pre-winter weather descends on the area's peaks and valleys, millions of trees take their cue to begin their transformation into the multi-hued red, yellow, and golden pallbearers of yet another summer.
In the world of unusual automotive paint jobs, it can sometimes seem like enthusiasm takes over from good taste. Then again, searingly bright, can’t-look-away patterns, and hyper-realistic colors are often a perfect fit for equally over-the-top automobiles, making this artistic license a straight-up middle finger aimed squarely at the millions of silver, white, and black cars roaming the country’s crowded highways.
Is it change for the sake of change that drove Buick to update its 5-passenger Envision SUV after a mere one and a half years on the American market? It might seem unusual to refresh such a new nameplate so quickly after its debut, but zooming out to a macroscopic view of Buick's developmental gold rush reveals a line-up that is almost entirely yearlings, leaving the Envision as the only vehicle still wearing an old suit.
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".
