School buses may always be yellow, but coming soon they may also be…green. Daimler owned, Thomas Built Buses, one of the largest and oldest manufacturers of school buses in North America recently announced the launch of the Saf-T-Liner® C2 Jouley School Bus, and with it, the possible future death-knell of loud, stinky diesel engines which traditionally have been found under their hood. Named after the joule unit of energy, the Jouley is a full-sized 100% battery electric powered school bus.
In many respects, we as a society are our own worst enemy. A classic example of this relates to how we never give ourselves a chance in life to simply sit back, pause for a moment and just take a breath. We have set up of lives as a society in a way that we just can’t stop for anything or anyone. When one event or occasion passes we scavenge its remains, discard it and then immediately look ahead to the next one.
I have always believed that people who live in urban areas should find time to visit the country. It’s the countryside surrounding our cities where much of our food is grown and raised, and it’s the countryside that acts as both a buffer from sprawl and a counterbalance to a fast-paced, high-density way of life. Visiting the country is as much of an educational experience as it can be a recreational one.
@dagmar_johnson@WBrettWilson Oil will still be around for some time, few doubt that but only the most steadfast refuse to accept that a multitude of economic, legislative & scientific factors have pushed us over the Tipping Point to where the world is now shifting to renewable energy as its preferred source.
@dagmar_johnson@WBrettWilson You can dig in your heels and take the myopic "show me the money now" perspective or you can see what the rest of the world sees & major institutions are now making into policy - oil has had its day and renewables will soon lead the way.
@dagmar_johnson@WBrettWilson As a business woman, you should also know that one does not judge the success of new tech by immediate ROI. You should also be aware that just today the World Bank announced it will stop funding oil & gas exploration & dev as of 2019 https://t.co/ed4RCzC4dg
@WBrettWilson@dagmar_johnson A comeback for C.N. perhaps but their acquisitions come from swallowing up weaker competition - not a ringing endorsement for the sector as a whole. Also here is the reference to oil subsidies as requested https://t.co/uxjd3mNUlU
@WBrettWilson@dagmar_johnson Mergers & Acquisitions bolstered Canadian Natural, but that's hardly indicative of the sector. And emerging tech in a market often needs a hand in the beginning - kinda like the $3.3 Billion Canada gives to Cdn Oil companies in subsidies each year.
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".
