About 100 fish have died as the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) warned members of the public and pets to avoid waterways. Sampling at Merlynston Creek and Jack Roper Reserve Lake found extremely low levels of dissolved oxygen that “would not support aquatic life such as fish and insects”. The EPA confirmed that carp had been found dead at the southern end of Jack Roper Reserve Lake near the Western Ring Road while further fish deaths were expected.
Witnesses reported seeing a man driving erratically along Swanston St, just after 11pm. DID YOU WITNESS THE RAMPAGE? Email: Ashley.Argoon@news.com.auIt’s believed the man drove onto the footpath and smashed into three businesses, including the Commonwealth Bank and ANZ bank, before driving to Crown Casino at Southbank. The 34-year-old, from Burwood East, drove to the basement level carpark then crashed again, this time into the foyer, then fled to the gaming floor.
Cam McIntyre said the dog bit him just millimetres from a major artery in his neck. The 53-year-old was running his dog in Brighton on Saturday morning when another dog, believed to either be a labrador or rottweiler, attacked. “My dog’s just gone up to this other rather large dog, had a little bit of a sniff and within seconds this other dog had its jaws wrapped around my dog’s head,” he told 3AW Breakfast.
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".
