SCOTS star and three times BTCC champion Gordon Shedden is to leave Honda Racing and the Halfords Yuasa team. The driver who has over 12 years formed a formidable partnership with Matt Neal - himself a three times champion - started driving for Honda in 2006 and went permanently with them in 2010. Since 2006 he has won 48 races, three championship titles including back-to-back wins in 2015 and 2016 and the first ever win in the BTCC by an estate car.
DISTURBING footage has surfaced showing real people being used as car crash test dummies in 1970s Germany. In astonishing scenes the people testing the seat belts and cars are thrown about backwards and forwards in their seats. The video purports to be about safety and the importance of wearing seat belts but is shocking in today’s world. It first shows a man and a woman in a factory test situation being thrown about to test the reliability of their seat belts.
Here is a car with a real sparkle in its eye – the new DS 7 Crossback. Switch on the lights and they strobe and shimmer first purple and then like diamond crystals as each one pivots internally 180 degrees. I never thought I would get so exercised about car lights. The 7 Crossback is the push by DS Automobiles to become France’s luxury car brand in the same way the country has captured the luxury fashion market with Hermes, Chanel and Louis Vuitton.
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".
