Lewis Hamilton has already captured his fourth Formula One World Driving Championship title. He did so at the 2017 Mexican Grand Prix a few weeks ago. Finishing ninth, he still amassed enough points to defeat his nemesis Sebastian Vettel, who also has four World Driving Championships. Making smaller news in October was the replacement of Jolyon Palmer on the Renault Sport team by the Spaniard Carlos Sainz, Jr.
Not long after Bugatti's new Chiron set an official world record for the quickest time for a production car to accelerate to 400 kph and then brake back to a dead stop (41.96 seconds), another supercar set another world record, one that Bugatti had held for years. On an 11-mile stretch of straight public road near Las Vegas, NV, the Koenigsegg Agera RS averaged 277.9 mph for two runs up and down the highway, breaking Bugatti’s 267.8 mph average set in 2010 with the Veyron Super Sport.
Did you know that for under $10, you can ride in a train at a whopping 268 mph? That’s almost twice as fast as the world’s quickest rollercoaster – Formula Rossa at Ferrari World in Abhu Dhabi, which goes 150 mph. There’s a slight catch to the train ride. You have to travel to Shanghai, China. From the Longyang Road Station to Pudong International Airport resides the Shanghai Maglev Train, also known as the Shanghai Transrapid.
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".
