Nissan's display at the New York auto show includes a camera that can take the place of the car's inside rear-view mirror. The "smart rearview mirror" is exhibited on a Nissan Rogue SUV, but isn't likely for showroom models soon. It makes a real-life debut on the automaker's ZEOD RC, an experimental race car scheduled to compete in the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Why they say so: New-car inventories generally are swollen, so rebates are generous. “If you’re a real deal-finder, go get yourself a leftover 2017. There’s a lot of inventory out there,” says Ian Beavis, chief strategy officer at auto consultant and marketing company AMCI Global. Automakers had record U.S. sales in 2015 (17.465 million) and again in 2016 (17.548 million), according to car-research company Edmunds. But this year, that’ll be off. Edmunds forecasts 17.2 million.
Those who own a flooded vehicle can try to rescue it, and used car buyers should take steps to prevent unknowingly buying a car that’s been flooded. Both are significant challenges. Here’s how to meet them. Water quickly damages the electrical components, meaning the cars “may no longer be safe or roadworthy,” warns the government’s National Motor Vehicle Title Information System. So, get it out of the water ASAP. The longer it sits, the worse the damage.
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".
