I currently have a 2013 VW Passat Diesel that is part of the class action settlement and that I’m looking to replace. My wife and I are snowbirds who drive to Florida and stay until April. Our price range is up to $40,000. Since we both drive and are very different in height, power seats are handy. Being seniors, some of the newer electronic driver aids seem like good ideas for us. – Barry, Owen Sound, Ont. Leeder: The fallout from Dieselgate continues.
We are expecting twins, soon going to need a large vehicle to haul our family. We also have a Great Dane that is heading toward middle age, so the higher ground clearance of an SUV isn’t ideal as she gets older. That leaves us looking at minivans. We have to be budget-conscious (our diaper costs are set to skyrocket!) so we’re trying to keep the overall price under $35,000.
Its sights set on boosting North American market share by 2030, the Honda Motor Co. dropped the silks for a trackside showing of several new vehicles at the company’s research and development facility last week. The offering included a new halo car, the Civic Type R; the Clarity, Canada’s first plug-in hybrid from Honda; and a fully redesigned Accord sedan that promises to be the auto maker’s most luxurious version yet. All are set to arrive in Canadian dealerships in the coming months.
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".
