Think back to the era of pith helmets, thick handlebar moustaches, and a gently British chap approaching you and saying, “Dr. Livingston, I presume,” and you’re close to the character and experience delivered by Honda’s superb Africa Twin CRF1000L adventure motorcycle. The two-wheeled time-machine mirrors the exploratory renaissance of the 1800s while providing innovative engineering and contemporary comfort. Honda’s off-road motorcycle forays have generally been limited to small dirt-bikes.
I transition from one controlled slide to another as the car’s tail dances left and right. I execute a pirouette around a cone and come to a stop in a cloud of tire smoke. Feeling triumphant, my arms open wide, awaiting the audience’s applause. No ovation comes. Instead, Formula Drift pro Jeff Jones saunters over to the clapped-out 25-year-old Nissan with a half missing bumper, ruined seat, and leaky water pump. “Not bad,” he says, “but you could go deeper and really make it dope.
Call us crazy, but for some reason, this bedazzled Lamborghini Huracán isn’t a travesty of bad taste and too much money. Yes, it may be eye-watering to many, but outrageous style is what Lamborghini is known for. And this Swarovski crystal-covered Huracán seems like the logical apex of Lamborghini style and ridiculousness. According to its owner, the ruby Lamborghini Huracán is covered in over 1.3 million Swarovski gems, and is owned by Russian model and fashion designer, Daria Radionova.
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".
