Each week, Benjamin Law asks public figures to discuss the subjects we're told to keep private. This week, he talks with Miranda Tapsell. Best known for the 2012 hit film The Sapphires, the 30-year-old actor has recently co-written her first film, Top End Wedding, in which she will also star. How would you like to die? In my sleep, like my dad's mum. She just got a little bit tired, went to bed and never woke up. So it's about painlessness? Also the fact she was, like, 90 – the most amazing innings.
Each week, Benjamin Law asks public figures to discuss the subjects we're told to keep private. This week, he talks with Jenny Graves, geneticist and La Trobe University professor who was awarded the Prime Minister’s Prize for Science in 2017. She has spent 50 years in genomic and epigenetic research. Is there a war between religion and science or is it just a matter of perception? I can see there's a war there. Of course, I'm on the side of evolution.
You went from starting your own renegade church to not believing. What happened? One day in year 6, our teacher told us all to stand up. We had to sit down if we knew we were evil. I thought, "Evil? Well, I don't think I'm particularly good, but evil?" That's, like, torturing kittens. The entire class sat down, one by one, leaving me standing, getting redder and redder. That teacher called me Saint Jennifer for the whole year.
Fellow Australians. If you are reading this tweet, it means I have been murdered.
Jks, I'm just going offline for the next week or so for a project you'll hear about later in 2018.
See you on the other side when I'm back. IN POG FORM.
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".
