The Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) 2018 grant and scholarship application period now is open to high school and postsecondary collision students who will be attending career and technical schools and colleges in the fall. The foundation and its industry supporters offer more than $200,000 in grants and scholarships annually, as part of their mission to promote collision repair education and create quality candidates for entry level job opportunities.
The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) has extended the application period for the 2018 WIN scholarship program to Jan. 31. WIN offers scholarships to provide tuition assistance, as well as educational and enrichment opportunities to qualified applicants. The program for 2018 consists of the College Student Tuition and Conference Scholarship awards. The College Student Tuition and Conference Scholarship awards are presented to students enrolled in a postsecondary collision repair technology program.
Insurance companies “pressure and downright bully” collision repairers into using cheaper aftermarket crash parts. Now, attorney Todd Tracy says, there’s scientific data to prove that insurers are putting profits over safety when they push non-OEM parts. Tracy, whose law firm represented the Seebachans in their multimillion-dollar lawsuit against John Eagle Collision Center in Dallas, recently commissioned three crash tests at KARCO Engineering’s crash-testing facility in Adelanto, Calif.
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".
