And you thought 2017 had its share of unbelievable headlines: Bentley has confirmed that it intends to prepare and build a Bentayga for participation in the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. To repeat: Bentley wants to race its new SUV at one of the world’s most demanding hill climbs, to become the quickest SUV to have ever tackled 156 corners and 12.42 miles of prime Colorado mountain. Jaw, meet floor.
The world is quite literally falling to pieces. Anyone who’s driven a particularly broken road where the tarmac no longer concerns itself with the radical concept of ‘staying in one piece’ will agree. Our roads are failing. Thus, if we follow this largely unscientific and anecdotal logic, you might think a large SUV is the answer. They’re big. They’re comfortable. They will absorb things and keep you safe and calm. They’ll even venture off-road if you wish. Wrong.
One of the world’s biggest car companies wants to sell fewer cars. That, in short, is what Ford’s executive vice president Jim Farley said to a conference of motor industry bigwigs this week. That’s not the complete story, of course. Speaking at the Deutsche Bank Global Auto Industry Conference in Detroit, Farley said he wants Ford to work towards “a lower volume passenger car line-up in North America and Europe”.
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".
