The more news we hear about Geely, the more we start scratching our heads. The Chinese company made some huge waves last month when it was revealed its billionaire CEO Li Shufu purchased $9 billion in Daimler shares, giving him a 9.69 percent stake in the company. That’s enough to make him the leading shareholder, but according to Spiegel Online and BMW Blog, Shufu first sought out a deal with Bimmer execs in Munich.
It seems there’s a problem in the Philippines with crime. Actually there’s a problem with crime in pretty much every country, but Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte cites corruption in ports – where high-end autos like Porsches, Maseratis, and BMWs – are illegally brought into the country. We’re not experts on Philippine law, but apparently it’s illegal to import used vehicles for sale except under certain circumstances.
Check your calendar – St. Patrick’s Day is nearly upon us (not to mention the new Avengers movie) which means the inevitable influx of green everything has begun. Aside from colored beer and U.S. paper currency, our favorite way to embrace green at the Motor1.com office is on the exterior of a properly fast car. We suspect the folks at Ford might feel the same way, as the automaker has appropriately chosen this occasion to announce a new color for the 2019 Mustang. Care to guess what shade it is?
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".
