Now is as good a time as any to remember when the McLaren F1 went to Japan in 1996 and ran the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship. Unsurprisingly, it cleaned up. The season went to none other than Ralf Schumacher and Naoki Hattori in their Lark-branded F1, back before it went to its long-tail configuration. McLaren F1 race cars still looked just like McLaren F1 road cars at that point. Ralf and Naoki made McLaren the first and only non-Japanese manufacturer to win the top GT500 class.
Falls Church, Virginia (outside of Washington, D.C.) has the lowest poverty level of any independent city or county in America, as the U.S. Census Bureau found in 2011. But it’s still a surprise that the city got itself a Volvo for a cop car back in the ‘80s. Also, now it could be yours.This 1984 Volvo 240 DL sedan came equipped with a police package, something I didn’t realize you could get on a Volvo 240.
To understand the lunacy of this vehicle, let us turn to the section on low-volume manufacturers in the 1970s, from James A. Laux’s The European Auto Industry: Although specialist car builders disappeared in the United States before and after the Second World War, in Europe a few succeeded in retaining their independence […] The specialist carmaker had to ask high prices and sell enough cars to periodically finance the development of a new model in order to maintain its image as a...
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".
