Where Did We Drive It? For the most part, it was another strong month for our long-term 2017 Genesis G90. We rolled up about 1,300 smooth and quiet miles in September, many of them courtesy of yours truly on a jaunt to the Central Coast. I've come to think of the G90 as one of the long-term fleet's unsung heroes — we don't talk about it much around the office anymore, but it's an awesome car on the open road, providing thoroughly convincing performance and luxury.
Where Did We Drive It? Are we running out of things to say about our long-term 2016 Toyota Prius? As the staff's resident Prius fanboi, I like to think that the car's quiet competence has simply left most of my colleagues speechless. We refueled the Prius twice during the month of August, and that's also how many comments were added to the logbook — two. But those tanks of gas bought us many hundreds of pleasant commuting miles to and from our Santa Monica headquarters.
Where Did We Drive It? Oregon. We drove the long-term 2017 Infiniti QX30 from Los Angeles to Bend, Oregon, and back. Specifically, I did — I'm the one who likes to drive to the Pacific Northwest every summer because the otherwise perpetual rain is on pause, the sky stays light till 10 p.m., and I have a friend in Portland who's eager to take advantage before the clouds roll in again.
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".
