At first, the course seems impossible. It’s a rippling grey ribbon of a road fading into the distant snowcaps. A terrifying ascent pinned up by stones, it looks simply too precarious to be navigable. But it is — and it’s breathtaking. On an episode of Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson and gang declared Italy’s Passo dello Stelvio — the Stelvio Pass — the greatest drive in the world. They weren’t wrong.
Generally speaking, the Canadian Prairie is a pretty chilly place in the winter. Here's something to warm you up: heavy-hitter AMGs, heated seats and some sideways sliding. Truth be told, you won't come away from Mercedes's three-day driving academy having absorbed many lessons to make you safer on the road. The cars wear studded, specially made tires that aren't quite road legal. Moreover, stability controls have been totally removed, beyond what the street cars are capable of. It doesn't matter.
That's the rhetorical discussion topic at a Mercedes-Benz news conference in Metzingen. And the answer covers everything from fashion model Cindy Crawford's facial mole to the G-Class's distinct door handles and blinkers. Now 38 years old, the G-Class is defined by its instantly recognizable, boxy, upright military design. "The G-Class remains an icon, only better. Look at the interior and judge if it's better" – that's the challenge from Gunnar Guethenke, head of the program for Mercedes-Benz.
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".
