Whether ex- racing driver Michael Schumacher is Formula 1’s GOAT (Greatest of All Time) is still hotly contested by F1 fans and pundits, but there’s no debating that a Ferrari F2001 that he drove to victory at the 2001 Monaco Grand Prix is the most expensive contemporary F1 car to ever sell at auction, according to Sotheby’s, reaching $7,504,000 after buyer’s commission.
It’s the question I always wonder after a day spent at the annual Best of France and Italy car show held each November at Woodley Park in Van Nuys, California: Why do I never see this [insert esoteric car here] any place other than this car show? It’s a valid question, though it’s probably best that some of the cars on display are kept shielded from the melee that is Southern California traffic.
Bonhams’ Bond Street Sale, an annual collector car auction held each year in London, has just listed two classics previously owned by members of The Beatles: a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 and a 1966 Mini Cooper S. Both cars will cross the block on December 2. The ’64 Aston Martin was purchased new by Sir Paul McCartney, former Beatles bassist, and is believed to be the musician’s first Aston Martin.
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".
