Elon Musk has revealed his sleek all-electric truck today, and suddenly it seems clear I wasn’t the only child poring over Usborne’s Book of the Future (1979), all those years ago. Unveiled less than 18 months after first revealing ‘part two’ of his ‘master plan’, Musk’s Tesla Semi is not the first all-electric truck – there are some operating here in Australia – but, as seems ever the case with Tesla, it is likely to build plenty of hype.
It’s official: Ford Endura is the name you’ll see on local versions of the imported Edge SUV, due here in 2018 as a successor to the big Australian-made Territory that retired in October. When the Endura goes on sale, it is expected to launch from $49,990 with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. Read more on that here. Although pricing is still to be made official, Ford has at least confirmed the diesel-only offering.
Toyota Australia knows it has room at the top of its HiLux line for an even musclier pack than what it offers right now with its latest take on a TRD-badged model. The company is no stranger to performance-tweaked HiLux packages, however, having dabbled in that segment nearly 10 years ago with the supercharged 225kW TRD HiLux 4000S.
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".
