Ken Mitchell said he was “knocked sideways” when he heard the news that the Ulverstone Soccer Club were using Saturday to celebrate his contribution to the club. Mitchell, a life member, is celebrating his 50th year with it, in where he was had key roles on and off field as a player, a coach at all levels, committee member and volunteer. He also helped build their clubrooms at its former home on Knights Road. In recent times, he has played a big role in the development of the women’s game.
“My job is to get him back in the Australian one-day team." No longer having national duties to worry about may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for James Faulkner, believes Tasmania coach Adam Griffith. Former Launceston all-rounder Faulkner was dumped from Cricket Australia’s contract list in April and overlooked for the country’s recent failed Champions Trophy a little more than two years after being man of the match in the World Cup final.
You have to give credit to the Australian cricket selectors. Almost with a Glenn McGrath line and length level of consistency when it comes to their ability to confound and confuse when it comes to the decisions that they make in putting together our national side. The latest example of this comes with the axing of Stephen O’Keefe for August’s tour of Bangladesh. Not the specifically the fact he has been omitted, but for the reasons why.
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".
