GEORGE TOWN: The Penang government has shot down talks that some RM2 million of drainage contributions from developers earmarked for flood mitigation projects were squandered. Penang Local Government, Traffic Management and Flood Mitigation Committee chairman Chow Kon Yeow (pix) said the money was not misappropriated.
GEORGE TOWN: The increase in non-revenue water (NRW) is due to the no-water-rationing policy implemented by the Penang government. Penang Water Corporation (PBAPP) CEO Datuk Jaseni Maidinsa (pix) said the water supply operator had been pumping treated water at higher pressures to ensure no water rationing during the dry season. He said pumping water at higher pressure caused smaller distribution pipes which are outdated to burst or leak resulting in higher NRW losses.
GEORGE TOWN: The system where the federal government is responsible for federal roads and state governments are responsible for state roads may be changed if Pakatan Harapan (PH) wins federal power. Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said such a system has been in place since before his administration came to power. "That is how the system works. "We will have to think about changing the system when we win Putrajaya," he said in a press conference today.
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".
