Kent Sauer, who owns a 1962 Chevy II station wagon, likes the Access Labour Day Show N Shine because there are lots of different old cars to see. “It always amazes me every year I come here, there is always something different that you didn’t know was in Regina,” he says. For Steve Tidy of Odessa, who has a 1966 Volkswagen Beetle, it’s about helping out. “All the proceeds go to a good, local cause, the Regina Food Bank,” says Tidy.
With a media test vehicle for a week — a Ford Explorer — we head off to explore North Dakota. With lots of options, the price tag is $59,054 — well above the starting point of $48,899. Early one hot August evening, we leave Regina and cross into the U.S.A. at Portal. As darkness falls, the Explorer’s automatic headlight dimmer switches back and forth between low beam and high beam as I meet and then go past oncoming traffic. This feature is part of the optional $2,250 technology package.
The latest, largest, luxurious Lincoln may be just what’s needed to help the brand reclaim much of the prestige that it once had. The Continental name — first used by Lincoln in 1939 — has returned for use on the top-end Lincoln sedan. It may help Lincoln move away from some of the tough times it’s faced in recent years. For decades, Lincoln was the main rival to Cadillac in the luxury car field, although Cadillac sold more units.
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".
