DROWSINESS at the wheel is a major danger on our roads. I have not met many drivers who will not deny that they have felt sleepy on the motorway or whiling away the time in traffic queues. Breakdown androad safety organisation GEM Motoring Assist is encouraging drivers to ensure they get sufficient sleep before getting behind the wheel. GEM says this will not only help them feel better, but will also make a significant contribution to reducing the risks they face on the road.
On the morning of June 22, 1941, three million invading German soldiers crossed the Soviet frontier as part of Operation Barbarossa. Simultaneously, Soviet supply trains bearing oil, timber, grain, and other vital raw materials, crossed westward heading into Germany. This was the last exchange of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, the tenuous alliance between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany that would inaugurate World War II.
THE pulse of the 1960s motor trade was footfall in dealers' showrooms and if the product was not up to par then these halls of automotive glamour could start to become very empty. For that reason the bigger names in the industry were locking horns in a neck or nothing race to provide the latest trends first and fill the order books. A case in point was Vauxhall, engaged in a ding-dong battle with Ford which was raking in the cash with its Cortina family car.
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".
