In the Budget in March 2017 a £270m fund was announced to keep the UK at the forefront of ‘disruptive technologies’ such as driverless cars. But what do driverless cars mean for you? >> READ MORE: Our rough guide to driverless carsIt’s any new tech that aims to disrupt the ‘conventional’ way of doing things. Driverless cars are on the way to shake up the way the car industry operates, but other examples are robotics and bio-technology, both becoming increasingly important in the modern world.
Perspective is an interesting concept. Giving yourself a different viewpoint can really change some things especially when you’re a hired assassin in the future. It’s a bit skewed in that sense but applying that to how you choose your targets and especially how you deal with those targets. Tokyo 42 is taking that line of logic and applying it into its core design to create an interesting and dynamic world and a very interesting game.
Worldwide, 200,000 units of Skoda’s venerable Q-car, the Octavia vRS, have made their way to drivers aiming to dip under the radar. It’s one of the most practical cars in the C-segment, yet still with enough excitement on tap to enjoy a good blast when needed. We drove the facelifted model only a few weeks ago, but now there’s another option on the table. It’s called the 245, which means power’s been upped by 15bhp, and you’ll struggle to spot one.
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".
