There are myriad reasons a car could be declared a total loss, including, apparently, an incredibly tiny crack in the structure of your Chevrolet Corvette. That’s precisely what happened to Corvette Forum user cdm85-251 and his 2017 Corvette Grand Sport. Here’s how it went down, according to his post on Corvette Forum:“I had the misfortune of being on an extremely busy interstate about a month ago when a vehicle in front of me went over a large rock or chunk of something VERY hard.
Didier Calmels is a French businessman and the former co-owner of the Larousse & Calmels Formula One team. Calmels was dismissed from the team he co-founded in 1989 after he murdered his wife when he suspected her of an affair. And now he's an Indy 500 entrant. Calmels will be partnering with Schmidt-Peterson Motorsports to field Frenchman Tristan Gommendy in the 2018 Indy 500.
There are more people out there who are drift idiots than actual drift heroes. And there's a reason for that, drifting takes a lot of practice to get comfortable, and it's a hard thing to practice. But there are a few easy takeaways that can make you better at the art of driving sideways. First, find a place to practice drifting. And that place isn't near your home. It's not on the road down the street from your friend or on a mountain pass.
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".
