Nathan Bomey, a business reporter for USA TODAY, is the author of Detroit Resurrected: To Bankruptcy and Back, to be published by New York-based W.W. Norton & Co. in April 2016. The book chronicles the saga of Detroit’s crash into insolvency and the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. histor...
Don't bury the internal-combustion engine just yet. Nissan luxury brand Infiniti is claiming a breakthrough in engine technology that will allow for variable compression for the first time in a production vehicle. The technology provides more power and better fuel efficiency by raising and lowering pistons depending on driving conditions. Currently, engine pistons move at a constant distance as they go up and down in the cylinder, a process that determines vehicle performance.
Gas prices are finally edging downward as the effects of Hurricane Harvey and other disruptions begin to wear off, providing some relief for motorists during the Thanksgiving travel season. Although gas prices on Thanksgiving are still expected to be the highest in three years, it's tough not to be thankful given recent turmoil. With AAA projecting the busiest Thanksgiving travel season since 2005, it's also impeccable timing for gas prices to be falling.
Want to take your Tesla for a joyride ... through the air? In a tease that would be utterly ludicrous if it had come from practically anyone else, Tesla CEO Elon Musk hinted Sunday that a "special upgrade" of the company's new Roadster supercar may be capable of briefly flying. The first units of the Tesla Roadster, which Musk revealed Thursday at an event in California, are supposed to arrive in 2020 at a price of $250,000.
@Baylan295 Certainly there are many critics of the lead mediator's aggressive role in the Detroit bankruptcy. Plenty of room for debate over his choices and tactics. But the case was an epic clash and it's hard to see it resolving itself without a strong hand at work.
And as a reporter, I'll say it's concerning that mediation can be used in municipal bankruptcies to block the public from vital information about the governmental entity's future. Voters have a right to know. https://t.co/EvChGbo2pT
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".
