Australia's tabloid magazines received a massive blow when Rebel Wilson was awarded a whopping $4.5 million in damages over a series of articles in 2015 that were found to be defamatory. But it's also an opportunity for publishers and readers to say goodbye to an out-moded product. The sheer size of the payout — which could be the subject of an appeal — sets a legal and social precedent in what magazines cannot get away with printing about people.
However, unlike Paris, you don’t need a full week to get a sense of what is the heart of this city. All you need is a day, two at most, to experience fascinating museums, beautiful churches, tasty food and sites that were just made for Instagram. In fact, Lisbon seems like it was made for social media. Located on the Iberian Coast, Lisbon experiences Mediterranean weather, soaking its colourful light. It can get quite warm in summer, so pack a hat and slather on the sunscreen.
Freebirthing is on the rise despite the risks involved. This article originally appeared on news.com.au and has been republished here with permission. Image: iStock. For most pregnant women, giving birth in hospital is the assumed place where they will deliver their bundle of joy. But for a small but impassioned number of mothers-to-be, the very idea of delivering their babies in a hospital fills them with dread.
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".
