CARMEL, Calif. â€” A red Ferrari set a record Thursday as the most expensive car ever sold auction. The 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta, reportedly one of only 39 made, sold for $38,115,000 including the 10% commission at a Bonhams auction here. Auction officials say the sale easily topped the previous record of any car ever sold at auction, about $30 million for a 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196R F1 single-seat racer sold last year at a Bonhams auction in England.
CHICAGO -- Ford gave its new 2016 Ford Police Interceptor SUV a fitting introduction here Thursday by having its own K9 unit, a Belgian shepherd dog, pull off the sheet. Keegan the Malinois played the role of police dog at the press preview of the Chicago Auto Show by running up to the Police Interceptor SUV, grabbing the sheet in its teeth and revealing the menacing vehicle underneath.
You may not have won the Nobel prize, but now you can own one. The gold medal for the 1988 Nobel prize for physics is up for auction. It had been awarded to one of the nation's leading quantum physicists, Leon Lederman, and two others credited with discovering a new type of neutrino. The sale is unusual in that Leon Lederman, now 92, is only one of two Nobel laureates who have decided to sell their medals while they are still living, says the auction house, Nate D. Sanders Auctions.
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".
