Why? Why? Why? It’s the enduring refrain of a child eager to learn about the world and understand how things came to be. We’ve all been that child, deciding we’re ready to finally be entrusted with the Earth’s secrets. But so often we are ignored, silenced, and told to stop questioning. “Why” becomes a dirty word. Don’t question authority. We don’t need to know why, we just need to do what we’re told.
Motor Crush #6 is that brief pause at the beginning of a race, when each racer is revving their engines and glaring at the competition. So much has happened for them to get to this point, and it’s almost time to gun that engine and ride as hard as they can — but not quite. Motor Crush #6 (written by the core team of Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr, with guest line art by Stewart) is that interregnum. That deep breath. That final moment before all hell breaks loose.
It starts in a tavern, like all fantasy adventures must. A group of adventurers are sitting around the table playing a nice game of Dragon’s Horde, until a white-haired newcomer reveals her final card and wins the game by 80 points. Unfortunately, her opponents are none too happy about this and the biggest one draws his sword to give her what-for. But this rogue — Luvander, as we’ll learn later — leaps up and runs along the length of his sword to kick him in the face. Scoundrels?
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".
