ALL Tiger could do was sit, sit and sit. And she did not like it, not one little bit. It was not quite Dr Seuss’ cat in a hat - but Hashtag Meow Cat Cafe manager Amelia Wang was stunned to find a cat in a box dumped on the doorstep of the Felixstow business yesterday. The box had several holes and a pleading note written on behalf of its abandoned occupant, 10-year old female Tiger. “My owner passed away (and) I was left in a shed for several weeks,” the note stated.
DISBELIEF and despair were eclipsed by an unflinching resolve by Murray Bridge residents to rise above the ashes of the Thomas Foods International inferno. Dozens of workers flocked to the perimeter of the abattoir yesterday, some close to tears and others struggling to comprehend the magnitude of the blaze. As former employee Linda Collogan photographed the twisted metal remnants, she said the blaze was “devastating”. “It’s upsetting.
SPARKS from a welder working on an offal bin ignited material at Murray Bridge’s main employer, setting off a vast fire whose impact will continue to be felt in the region for months, and perhaps years. The simple accident during routine maintenance has thrown Thomas Foods International’s 1400 workers into a state of uncertainty. However, the internationally renowned meat company has vowed to stick by its workers and the town.
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".
