In 1999, Honda (HMC) introduced the first gas-electric hybrid in the U.S. -- ahead of even Toyota's (TM) Prius. Called the Insight, that car was strong on gas mileage but weak on comfort and style. Now with its new 2019 Insight -- introduced this week at the Detroit Auto Show -- Honda is adding curvy looks and a comfortable cabin to that high MPG.
Pickups and SUVs will be the headliners at this year's Detroit Auto Show. Two of the three top-selling pickups -- the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Ram 1500 -- will be displaying completely redesigned models at the Detroit show, which is officially known as the North American International Auto Show and which kicked off this weekend. Ford is introducing the first diesel engine for its best-selling F-150 pickup. It will also be showing a resurrected nameplate -- the Ranger midsize pickup.
Imagine that while you're driving, new technology could read your brain waves and anticipate that you want to turn or take other action and thus make the vehicle respond more quickly. That project from Nissan (NSANY) is the kind of gee-whiz technology going on display at this year's Consumer Electronics Show opening next week in Las Vegas. But less fanciful technology -- much of it aimed at moving toward self-driving vehicles -- will dominate the displays.
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".
