The findings have raised doubts about the accuracy of the way obesity is traditionally monitored and categorised. The Deakin University study published in the journal Preventative Medicine found the average waist circumference of women in 2011-12 was 6.7cm bigger than for women of the same body weight and height in 1989. And male waistlines were wider by 2.8cm, over the same period.
Lloyd Rayney has won his defamation suit against the WA state government. He has been awarded preliminary damages of $600,000 for damage to his business and reputation, with loss of earnings to be decided later. He was not in the WA Supreme Court to hear the verdict. Mr Rayney sued the state for being named by police as the “prime and only” suspect in the murder of his wife Corryn Rayney in 2007. He has always denied any involvement in his wife’s death and was acquitted of her murder in 2012.
It might still be an unaffordable delicacy for many, but lobster will be more plentiful and even a bit cheaper this season amid a China-fuelled industry boom that has made the crustaceans one of the nation’s fastest-growing exports. According to a study by economic consultants ACIL Allen, the western rock lobster is the nation’s most valuable fishery, contributing more than $500 million a year and supporting more than 2400 direct and indirect jobs in Western Australia.
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".
