As I previously discussed, expiration dates on food labels are way more confusing than helpful. Between the "best by" and "sell by" and "enjoy by," and whatever other variations of the terminology are out there, the expiration dates on the packaging may actually do more harm than good.
Nissan is developing a "car of the future that will read your brain waves," said Jie Ma and Nao Sano at Bloombergâ€‹. The automaker this week unveiled its "brain-to-vehicle" technology at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The system tries to "decode" a driver's thinking to "anticipate actions" and make hands-on driving more fun. The driver wears a skullcap with electrodes that transmit brainwave activity to influence the steering, acceleration, and braking systems.
The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web:"The auto industry's long-running sales party has come to an end," said Neal Boudette at The New York Times. Following seven straight years of growth, U.S. sales of new vehicles slid last year, to 17.2 million cars and trucks, a decline of 1.8 percent from 2016.
@MarketUrbanism@linusalf I get what you’re saying. I just think it’s like watching it rain one day and saying “it’s going to rain nonstop for the entire month now.” Maybe it will! But you can’t know from that data.
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".
