Nukes are the most unforgiving, most horrifying specter of death that humanity has ever devised. Virtually nothing can survive their vaporizing combination of heat, blast effects, and gamma-ray radiation. Nothing, that is, except the windshield of a Tesla Semi. We’d sure like to test that.After the reveal of the Tesla Semi and the Tesla Roadster last night, there was a lot of indignant consternation.

But people down there still need your help, and it is indeed still The Car Time. That means the Jalopnik Car Show for Hurricane Relief is back. And we want to see you and your beautiful cars.The new car show date is Sunday, November 26th. We know what you’re thinking right there. “But that’s the weekend after Thanksgiving!!
All of us – all of us – have definitively been there. Trundling down an empty stretch of barren, deserted, straight, flat highway, desperate to just gun it. That’s what the Koenigsegg Agera RS did on a stretch of Nevada road, hitting 278 mph. And by doing so, it might have broken the fastest speed ever recorded on a public road. I’m using words like “may” and “might have” because, like so much else in the record-keeping world, it’s a little unclear and a lot of it depends on who you ask.
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".
