There is one good thing about being lazy: The universe often rewards those who apply brain power toward the avoidance of work. Call it "The Sluggard's Paradox." In this case, my 2002 Jaguar XJR 100 needed a new supercharger belt. Jaguar’s shop manual lays out the replacement process in minute detail, complete with pictures. But the manual recommends draining the coolant and removing the entire fan assembly to gain access to the belts and pulleys. That, simply put, will not do for us.
The Porsche 911SC was one of the great classic air-cooled Porsches available—a real driver's car, this rear-engine go kart is still golden in the hearts of many purists. One conversion company, however, wants to the take the tired rumble of Porsche's aged boxer engine and give it new life with something electric. This is the 1979 Porsche 911 E.It all starts with a U.K.-based company called Electric Classic Cars.
Vancouver Island Motorsports Circuit is a petite, Hermann Tilke-designed racetrack teased out of an old logging forest. With just 1.4 miles of fresh tarmac bent into 19 corners, it’s a technical course of quick transitions and blind crests. It's made-to-order for close combat among Miatas, Boxsters, and the occasional Lotus Elise. Why I’m here in a 17-foot-long, 5,100-pound Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is a question only Porsche product planners can answer.
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".
