Well, that didn’t take nearly as long as we thought it would, now did it? Waymo has just announced it will be rolling out a yet another fleet of self-driving cars, this time in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler. In itself, that is not big news; there are fleets of autonomous automobiles being tested all through the United States (and, thanks to recent changes by the Wynne Liberals, Ontario).
SLOATSBURG, NY – Less is more. How many times have we heard that gem, Robert Browning’s call for a melding of body and soul has become something of a mantra, the roadmap to an enhancing of the quality of life by, well, a simplification of life. And, most certainly, it applies to the complication that is the modern condition. Overtime — unless you have a Christmas credit card to pay off — is almost always better off reduced than augmented.
Tesla has finally unveiled its much-promised big rig. And with not a little fanfare, especially considering that said semi is claimed to have a range of 500 miles (800 kilometres!) and, more importantly — at least for fleets seriously considering an all-electric 18-wheeled future — is able to recharge 400 of those miles (640 km) in just 30 minutes. So the question is, has The Elon Musk really reinvented the electric vehicle yet again?
@55daliman 620 miles needs 200 kW-hr battery. 200 kW-hr battery weighs 2000 pounds. Just the battery. If made conventionally like his sedans, that puts the roadster probably over 5,000 pounds. Would like to see a 2.5 ton car do 1.9 seconds. Would like to see that
Why does Waymo/Google the first to test completely self-driving cars? Is it because it has such a technological lead over traditional automakers? Or because it has never fasted a wrongful death class action lawsuit like Ford and Audi?
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".
