When I left New York City at the tail end of 2008, the rules of NYC pedestrianism were clear, rigorously enforced, and mirrored the essential protocols of highway commuting: no rubbernecking or sudden stops; maintain the flow of traffic at all costs; passing maneuvers into oncoming traffic are undertaken at your own risk. Tourists, with their swivelheads and lumbering, three-abreast barricade formations, were easy to spot precisely because they were so hard to avoid.
A pair of Texan thieves are in hot water after being found in the wrong vehicle. The early '90s GMC Suburban was occupied during the theft, but not in the way one might think. This particular vehicle was used to transport the deceased to a funeral home, and was currently on the job when the two thieves reportedly made haste with their plan to take off with the SUV.
That discrepancy doesn't bother me. Far more significant is that, in a present-day scenario, Parsons indicates the vehicle when referring to "autonomous cars," suggesting he's in an autonomous car, further backed up by the fact his hands are full with a cup of coffee and food and he makes no effort to engage with the steering wheel at any time. Perhaps worse, the video description makes it clear this is the exact commuting scenario towards which we all should strive:There are a few issues here.
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".
