I had never worked on a Harley-Davidson, I’d never turned wrenches on such a tight timeline, and I had certainly never installed a nitrous oxide system on a motorcycle. In my life I’ve done one custom motorcycle build, which I blindly hobbled through with surprising results, but somehow it felt like this eight-person team looked to me during our two-day build of a Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight Special. I kept saying, “I don’t know what we’re doing.” And everyone just smiled.
Heritage is both a help and a hindrance to Moto Guzzi, an Italian motorcycle manufacturer with century-old roots. A rousing start was followed by a tough era featuring numerous slipups and near-fatal stumbles that eventually steered Guzzi to where it is today: a company that creates eclectic, aesthetically interesting bikes typically unseen by the masses. And that’s something the company hopes to change.
He’d already slipped the razor-sharp tip of that butcher’s knife into his thin wrist. The voice inside his head urged him to do it: “Come on, it’s the right thing to do, for once in your useless life. Yes, do the world and yourself that single favour; just pull back on the blade. It’s easy enough and soon it’ll be over.”But then Cody Bates heard another voice.
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".
