Head-Up Displays (HUD) are not new, but they are still rare special equipment on new cars. You’re most likely to find one on a luxury car or exotic (Mazda is the one popular OEM who has incorporated an HUD into several models). Originally developed as a pilot’s aid, HUD project vital information on a transparent screen or on the windshield directly in the driver’s line of sight, usually confined to the lower section.
I love the current generation Mazda Miata. I didn’t think there was any way I could love it more, until I drove the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF, a new variant that substitutes a retractable hardtop for the MX-5’s soft convertible top. Mazda has done this before, but never as elegantly. The basic MX-5 package is the same from the convertible to the RF. Some subtle changes had to be made to achieve Mazda’s goal of benchmarking the soft-top’s handling.
According to his bio, Journalist Aaron Heinrich created the website Asphalt & Dirt a few years ago to answer two questions: “I wonder where that road goes, and what’s the story here?” Heinrich’s new book, Asphalt & Dirt: Life on Two Wheels, is a collection of profiles, interviews and photographs that have been featured on his website. Each chapter is a snapshot view of a man or woman whose life has been changed or directed by motorcycling.
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".
