The driver of this electric car clearly had a point to make when he decided to splash out on a personalised registration plate. Although we're guessing it was just a drop in the ocean compared to the price of a brand new Tesla Model S . But just to make doubly sure that all other road users were aware of the driver's fuel choice, he used the seven digits on the number plate to give a not-so-subtle hint.
Most motorists are well aware that if you are driving behind a Tesla, it will never need to turn off to fill up with diesel or petrol. But the owner of this brand new Model S has gone the extra mile to drive that message home. They were spotted cruising through the centre of Manchester in the blue sports car while displaying the personalised number plate NO 67 GAS. Commuters on Oxford Street saw the distinctive car with its personalised eco message during the morning rush hour.
Sun-worshippers hoping to mark the Winter Solstice on Sunday could avoid a trip to Stonehenge - and celebrate on the back streets of Manchester’s Northern Quarter instead. Mapping experts have identified a curious cluster of seven roads around Swan Street which are all perfectly aligned with the midwinter sun, just like the prehistoric stone monument in Wiltshire more than 200 miles away.
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".
