Hilly, forested and wet Tasmania is regarded by many Australians as their most picturesque state. It is also the most economically depressed, which is one of the reasons the Tasmanian government has up-ended a great walking tradition - that natural beauty owned by the state should be open to all, at minimal cost, in the spirit of democracy.
James Packer's decision to end his alliance with fellow billionaire Lawrence Ho and retreat to Australia has already cost him and his fellow investors $2.5 billion – and a big stake in one of the world's most-ambitious casino operators. Melco Resorts & Entertainment, the Ho family's casino business, has surged since Mr Packer started to sell Crown Resorts' shares in the company, which has mapped out a global expansion strategy similar to now-abandoned plans Mr Packer fostered for a decade.
Western Australia has started to emerge from one of the biggest economic downturns in recent Australian history, the state's leading business group and Treasurer Ben Wyatt said. Consumer confidence is at its highest level in four years and 76 per cent of residents believe the state economy will strengthen or not deteriorate over the quarter, up from 5 per cent three months earlier, according to a survey by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA.
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".
