"The smashing together of a car and an airplane makes neither a good car nor a good airplane." Pat Anderson, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University"The smashing together of a car and an airplane makes neither a good car nor a good airplane." Pat Anderson, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical UniversityFor nearly as long as there have been cars, there have been dreamers trying — and failing — to make them fly. The skies today are filled with fixed-wing airplanes, drones and helicopters.
For decades, consumers have been promised that flying cars are on the horizon. And yet, here we are, still stuck in traffic during our daily commutes. From automotive pioneer Henry Ford to aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss — and right up to George Jetson — each said we'd be zipping across the sky to work and then taxiing back into the garage when we got home. (We can ignore that Jetson's car folded into a briefcase; that was just nuts.)
WASHINGTON/DETROIT -- A consumer advocacy group founded by Ralph Nader and Consumers Union is gain taking aim at FCA US, this time over instances of stalling being alleged by dozens of consumers while driving the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan. The Center for Auto Safety is asking the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to open an investigation and issue an immediate recall of the 150,000 affected Pacificas, which the group says represent an "unreasonable risk to the public."
@RSorokanich That is the wrong hill on which to plant your flag, my friend. Pity that your life should have been lived in a vain attempt to hold onto something so wrong. Like a confederate general killed in the last battle of the war...
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".
