It's a great month to hail from Houston. The Astros got the ball rolling with their hard-fought World Series win and now gear heads are revving up to close out a historic November with H-Town's annual automotive love fest - the AutoRama. Hundreds of classic cars, customs, hot rods, motorcycles, trucks, lowriders, and way-out machines will shine at the 58th Houston AutoRama running Nov. 23 to 25.
Newest Nissan Titan XD could be 'King' of versatilityThe extended cab version of Nissan's "extra duty" Titan XD - the King Cab - arrived this spring, wrapping up an extended phase-in for the long Titan. The King Cab name goes back 40 years when Datsun, as the automaker was then known, created an extended-cab version of its stalwart 620 compact trucks. Nissan took a different tack when it mapped out the long-overdue second generation of the Titan. There are two distinct families of Titans.
Ford pulled a trick and a treat on a Houston minister at its Kentucky truck assembly plant last week. Develron Walker, pastor of Towers of Hope Church, thought he was brought to Ford's factory in Louisville to share the story of how his community and church were devastated in August by Hurricane Harvey. What Develron didn't know was that Ford would be giving the lifelong Houstonian a 2018 Ford Expedition to replace a flood-destroyed SUV he bought used three years ago.
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".
