Tesla's (NASDAQ:TSLA) first "affordable" model, the Model 3 sedan, is set to begin production next month. Although Tesla hasn't officially unveiled the final production version of its new compact sedan, it has told us quite a bit about the car -- both directly, and indirectly. Here are nine things you might not know about the Tesla Model 3, but should -- especially if you're planning to order one of these American-made premium electric cars.
While we Fools always invest with the long term in mind, we still think it is worthwhile to pay attention to short-term events. After all, stocks can sometimes move erratically based on the news of the day, so we like to keep close tabs on certain companies to ensure that our thesis for owning their shares -- or buying them -- is still intact. So what stocks should be watched like a hawk in the second quarter?
The other shoe has dropped: Under intense pressure from investors, Travis Kalanick stepped down as chief executive of Uber Technologies on Tuesday. Kalanick, Uber's co-founder and principal visionary, had done much to build the company into the most valuable of Silicon Valley's not-yet-public "unicorns." But after months of scandal, Kalanick may have become an obstacle to Uber's efforts to move forward. The New York Times was the first to report the story late on Tuesday night.
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".
