NORTH Melbourne defender Jamie Macmillan has launched a spirited defence of his club — and in particular two teammates. Macmillan, who has just signed a contract extension with the Kangas until the end of 2020, says some in the AFL media have disrespected his club, highlighting stars Robbie Tarrant and Ben Cunnington. North battled on the field this year — the Kangas finished 16th — and then was unable to attract a big name to the club during the recent trade and free agency period.
STUART Dew knows his club paid full price to land Lachie Weller but the new Gold Coast coach is confident that investment can pay off and the midfielder can help the Suns fight their way back up the AFL ladder. Weller joined Gold Coast during the AFL trade period after requesting a trade from Fremantle, with the Suns eventually getting the deal done on the final day after agreeing to hand over the second overall selection in the national draft.
LEWIS Hamilton secured his fourth world championship on Monday when he finished ninth in the Mexico Grand Prix. His greatness was not in dispute before securing another driver's title but after locking in another crown, the question has been asked: 'where does Hamilton sit among the sport's all-time greats?'
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".
