On this 100th anniversary of the first Chevrolet truck, the Bow-Tie division of General Motors has a new vehicle that Chevrolet says will someday outsell a Texas favorite – the Tahoe. The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse that I’ve spent the last few weeks with is indeed an impressive vehicle – a far cry from that 1917 truck, which was about as basic as a truck can be. It was a one-ton flatbed with no cab, no roof, doors or padding on its wooden bench seat.
James Wood Motors in Decatur has been honored for a second time as one of the top 50 Chevrolet dealers in the nation. Chevrolet officials from the region were on hand Tuesday to recognize the dealership and its department heads at Gogo Gumbo in Boyd. The honor is for new vehicle sales, customer satisfaction, parts, service, used cars and financial standards. “We are only as good as our people,” said dealership Executive Manager Carey Williams.
I have been convinced through columns and letters from my colleague Brian Knox and old friend D.A. Sharpe that I should not skip voting in the Nov. 8 general election. They have not convinced me, however, that I should not simply ignore the presidential race, and I plan to leave that ballot blank.
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".
