One of the coolest new attractions in Las Vegas has nothing to do with dining, entertainment, or gambling. The AAA Self-Driving Shuttle, which launched in November, is the first vehicle of its kind to embark on a long-term pilot program on a public road in the United States. The free, air-conditioned minibus—a collaboration between AAA, the city of Las Vegas, and transit-management company Keolis—navigates a three-block circuit in the city’s downtown district.
We may not have seen out the end of 2017 yet, but some of us are already looking to the future. As 2017 marked 10 years since the iPhone was released, some are seeing this as a significant year, but the truth is that every year in the last year has been significant for mobile app development. To go from not having the word “app” in a vocabulary to being dependent on them for everything from socialising to travelling, this is quite a significant leap.
Originating thousands of years ago among the Aztecs in Mexico, Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is hardly a somber event. It’s more a celebration of departed friends, family members, ancestors, and sometimes even legends and heroes. Here in the United States, events may span several days and feature altars, processionals, and other activities to honor the dead.
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".
