Say you’re away on vacation and someone you trust, perhaps a close friend or family member, needs to borrow your car. With the 2019 Volvo XC40 arriving next spring, you’ll be able to grant a person access to the car via an app. The person borrowing the car will be able to access and start it all with a smartphone, so you don’t need to physically be there to hand over a key. (Keys are so yesterday, don’t you know?)
Volvo hasn’t sold a compact car in the United States since the C30 went the way of the dodo bird. There will soon be a compact in Volvo’s showrooms, though, and it’s shaping up to be one of the best options in its class. Porsche is confident its 911 GT2 RS will set the Nürburgring lap record for a production car. The time to beat is the 6:52.01 set by the all-wheel-drive Lamborghini Huracán Performante in 2016, and the rear-wheel-drive Porsche may have already eclipsed it.
Alfa Romeo’s relaunch in the United States may have had a shaky start but the brand is very much committed to our market and has a number of new models in the works. The relaunch started with the 4C sports car which has since been joined by the Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV. Still in the pipeline are a mid-size sedan, compact SUV, mid-size SUV, compact car, and two specialty models.
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".
