An anonymous London driver called into British emergency services Wednesday to report that Queen Elizabeth II was not wearing her seatbelt. A report from BBC claims that the West Yorkshire police received a #999 phone call to warn them of the act, one that was quickly dismissed by the department as a non-emergency. Under UK law, the Queen cannot be subjected to civil or criminal proceedings, making the event non-relevant and all the more knotty.
After a particularly rough outing in this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans, Toyota has spoken out about the viability of hybrid prototypes in LMP1 racing. The factory team only had one car finish the entire race, and thanks to problems with its electric drive system, the team decided to announce its concerns with the technology.
The Centenario project has been a big one for the Lamborghini team at Sant'Agata Bolognese. It was developed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini's birth, and in honor of him, the company has built 20 coupes and 20 roadster versions of the glorious V-12 exotic. The Centenario's undoubtedly wild design is one that stands out against even the most abstract supercars in the industry, and the roadster variant may take the cake in terms of sheer thrills.
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".
