Law enforcement aside, nothing stops a car party like an unplanned impact with a foreign object. For our Four Seasons 2016 Volkswagen Golf R that honor went to a chunk of retread that had come off a semi truck’s tire, which the driver was unable to evade. Not only did the front bumper get taken out, the techs at Galpin Volkswagen found that the intercooler, radiator, condenser, and underbody panels were also in need of replacement.Total damage?
I’ve known Patrick for 20 years, the two of us wandering far and wide since we met in the middle school lunch room. He’s the rare person who’s easy to be friends with, unfazed by the months that may slip between our meetings. These days, by some twist of the universe, we find ourselves living in the same small Virginia town where we grew up. The town of our fathers. Patrick’s dad, John, has owned a perfect 1983 Porsche 911 SC since the early ’90s. I don’t mean to imply the car is flawless.
Forget the birds, bees, and flowers. The surest signs that spring has come to Detroit are pothole-patching crews descending on the asphalt like ants on a jelly sandwich, immediate complaints about the Tigers’ deficient bullpen, and Inline Tube throwing open its doors to help kick off the car show season. For the latest gathering, Mother Nature decided to cooperate for a change, showering participants with wall- to-wall sunshine, which drew the biggest crowed we’ve ever seen at the open house.
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".
