BBC Top Gear’s former reasonably priced car, the Kia Cee’d hatchback, is up for sale on eBay, with its current bid standing at just £310 (correct at time of writing). The reasonably priced Kia Cee’d has shepherded a long list of A-list celebrities around the show’s infamously difficult racetrack as part of its “Star in a reasonably priced car” feature, including Tom Cruise, Alice Cooper and current Top Gear presenter, Matt LeBlanc.
The Suzuki Ignis has been a little overlooked following its launch late last year. Like a pop album in an overcrowded chart topper list, another superhero origins movie or an absurd fashion trend, the Ignis has been tarnished with the familiar ‘just another mini SUV’ brush. To be fair, we can’t blame anyone for thinking this way. Mini SUVs have become as unique as footballers’ Range Rovers. Many of them have merely become fashion accessories of manufacturers’ showrooms. A means to meet market fads.
Ever wanted to ride over the top of rush hour traffic? Of course you have. Well, thanks to an invention by Verizon, that can be a reality. As part of a dramatic publicity stunt to promote its in-car gadget the Hum, Verizon has customised a Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV, giving it the ability to sprout large hydraulic ‘legs’ and walk over traffic in something akin to an invention by Professor Pat Pending from Wacky Racers.
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".
