Aston Martin's Vantage sportscar has been motoring along nicely since it debuted in 2005, slowly evolving with the addition of a new engine or transmission every now and then. But the whole Aston Martin range has been accused of feeling a little samey, with a keen eye required to pick the old Vantage from a DB9 GT, or even the Vanquish, really. It was a hell of a look, but perhaps only reached out in one direction. The same cannot be said of the new model.
Using four-wheel torque vectoring, the Miss R promises to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 1.8 seconds, which would see it pipping the 2020 Tesla Roadster by a 10th of a second and absolutely annihilating anything short of a purpose-built dragster from the internal combustion world.
The idea is that bicycles, as well as a range of other electric mobility devices, including stand-up scooters, e-bikes and small electric motorcycles like the BMW Concept Link we saw earlier this year, would have their own express roads, inaccessible to cars, high above the ground and free from traffic lights. Dubbed Vision E³ Way, for "elevated, electric and efficient," the plan calls for elevated pathways with domed roofs and cooling ventilation.
@House_of_Rose@Hamaya42920579@DavePee I just find these guys cute. The rise of anti-science thinking is bewildering and scary as a movement, but the people themselves seem like earnest dumbasses doing their best to paddle against the current.
@House_of_Rose@DavePee I've heard the argument that gravity exists because our flat-plane Earth is accelerating upwards at 9.8 m/s/s, thus sticking us to it. Here, enjoy some of their mental gymnastics at the Flat Earth Wiki: https://t.co/ZrA3BU6e7u
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".
