As companies from Apple to Tesla race to develop autonomous cars, auto industry titans like Ford are ramping up production. The iconic car brand is slated to unveil its autonomous vehicle (AV) line in 2021. But Ford isn't the only legacy automaker gunning to put driverless cars on the road. The U.S. Transportation Department this summer gave self-driving vehicles a green light, and brands like General Motors, Toyota, Audi and Volvo, to name a few, are already building out their own lines.
It's not a secret that manufacturing is changing. Over the years, the industry has been battered and forced to modernize, but after decades of off-shoring, it's flourishing again. Manufacturing makes up about 12.5 percent of the country's GDP, contributing $2.18 trillion to the U.S. economy, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). What's more, the National Association of Manufacturers calculates that for every dollar spent in manufacturing, the economy gains $1.81.
Amy Peterson and Diana Russell founded Rebel Nell with one goal in mind: empowering disadvantaged women in Detroit. Besides wanting to help prop up their local community, they also happened to share a jewelry-making past. After much strategizing and planning, the stars aligned for Peterson and Russell and they were able to secure seed funding. With that, they started Rebel Nell and began hiring women and teaching them how to turn pieces of graffiti fallen from city murals into cool wearable art.
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".
