Where Did We Drive It? Our crack Edmunds team logged close to 2,000 miles in our 2018 BMW 540i in December. In addition to our normal commuting, I used the 540i for a Christmas family road trip, plus a blitz up to Northern California to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi with a friend (had I known how the film turned out, I needn't have bothered). We've got great comments this month on everything from the 540i's technology to its trunk space. What Kind of Fuel Economy Did It Get?
Where Did We Drive It? We added a decent chunk of miles to our 2017 Infiniti QX30 this month. Josh Sadlier drove it up to Northern California for a golfing trip, and I took my family to visit relatives for Thanksgiving. The combination, plus our normal commuting, gave us about 2,000 more miles on the odometer. Our QX30 earned favorable comments overall about the way it drives and looks, but its infotainment interface drew plenty of ire this month. What Kind of Fuel Economy Did It Get?
There's a reason the cover of a popular driving video game features a Porsche 911 GT2 RS instead of a minivan. One has 700 horsepower and racing stripes. The other reminds you of changing diapers. But when it finally comes time in your life to put down the game controller and face the reality of family-hauling duty, no vehicle is better suited than a minivan. Here's a look at two of the newest models: the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and 2018 Honda OdysseyÂ to help you choose. Sliding rear doors.
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".
