If you fall foul of the law, it will cost you – either a big fine, or penalty points on your licence, or perhaps even both. So it always pays to be aware of what big brother says you can and can’t do. But what about those rules of the road you might be breaking without even being aware of it?
Ferrari is brilliant at sports cars. But, in recent years, less good at open-top grand tourers. The folding hard-top California it launched a few years ago was, when compared to rivals such as the Mercedes-AMG SL63 and Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet, not very convincing. This simply wasn’t familiar territory for Ferrari. Cars such as this need to be thrilling and dynamic, but also refined and usable in everyday conditions.
Honda was keen. It wanted to get us into the latest Civic, to run one for six months. Why? Because we’d previously ran a Honda Jazz for six months, and the experience had left us rather cold. So it was with relish that we first set eyes on our brand new bright red Civic 1.0 VTEC SR. Compared to previous generations, which celebrated their oddball quirkiness, this is a big step on. It’s still unorthodox, but less divisive and, we think, more likely to get potential customers interested.
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".
