While the Frankfurt Motor Show took place just a week ago, Volvo elected to save the debut of its latest offering for a different city with a different vibe. Here in Milan, it's Fashion Week, the event that sees stylish types from around the world gather to learn and decide what to wear in six months' time. No coincidence, then, that the forthcoming Volvo XC40, a luxury compact crossover with no small amount of style itself, should be shown for the first time in fashion-forward Italy.
Remember how just three years ago, the performance spinoff of the Dodge brand introduced the Challenger SRT Hellcat? Remember how we mocked the thought of a 707-horsepower muscle car in this day and age? Remember how we nevertheless screened videos of drivers trying to send all that power to the rear wheels in a fit of blinding tire smoke?
Canyon Point, Utah. I’ve been down this road before with Land Rover. Well, not this very road, but some very much like it. Allow me to elaborate. Eight years ago, in the wilderness that is rural Vermont outside Manchester, yours truly, behind the wheel of the then-new Land Rover LR4, battled a diabolical off-road trail that stretched for about 40 kilometres and close to four hours. There were ruts. There were fallen trees. There were rocks galore.
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".
