BMW has been overtaken in the profitability race by rivals Audi and Mercedes, and investors worry this may be a long term trend. BMW’s third quarter results provoked negative comments like “you were the future once”, and “the absence of growth remains our number 1 bugbear”. BMW reported third quarter profits fell 5.9 per cent to €2.42 billion compared with the same period of 2016. Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) slipped 3.2 per cent to €2.3 billion.
Price £23, 770 For – cute, well equipped, beautiful finish, ideal for city driving. Against – range inadequate for distance driving, not helped by unreliable recharging network. I had high hopes of life with the new, improved all-electric Renault Zoe. After all, the range claim was now 250 miles and every day brings more news of charging networks being opened up.
“I looked at the damage a couple days later and thought, hang on, this car is computer protected” “Surely a Mickey Mouse little accident like this would be a doddle for the technology”Isn’t it great that computers can now automatically apply the brakes to protect us from even the most minor accidents? Well that was my thought when I bought my Suzuki Vitara last year with the top-of-the-range computerised safety package.
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".
