There were some that rumbled, and there were some that roared, there were even a couple that rattled. Americarna - New Plymouth's tribute to Detroit motor city and all things Ford, Buick or Chevrolet (to name a few attendees) - flexed its muscle and rode through town as the sun was setting on Friday. The car extravaganza didn't let the hundreds of fans lining Mangorei Rd down.
A truckie has thrown his support behind residents calling for New Plymouth's broken Breakwater Rd to be fixed. Doug Bell drove the potholed damaged road several times a day carting up to 29 tonne of bulk stock feed, metal or palm kernel from storage sheds at Port Taranaki to customers. The Regal Haulage driver had never seen the road as bad as it is. Bell said the solution would be to spend more money on repairing the road surface.
Major traffic delays of up to an hour are expected on Mt Messenger as contractors resurface sections of the highway south of the summit. Various sites over approximately 2.5 kilometres of the State Highway 3 will have the existing road surface removed and a new asphalt surface applied from Monday , New Zealand Transport Agency systems manager Ross l'Anson said. The repairs would take at least seven working days between 7.30am and 7.30pm, subject to weather conditions.
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".
