Premier Daniel Andrews has scorned suggestions Victorians are scared to eat out due to gang violence and invited Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton to join him for dinner at a restaurant. Mr Dutton said last week that some Victorians were scared to eat out for fear of being followed by street gangs, angering many people in the community who accused him of whipping up hysteria.
Homeowners whose properties are damaged by underground boring to build the West Gate Tunnel will be compensated, the state government has promised. About 350 houses that sit above the tunnel's proposed route may be affected. The tunnel will run under Yarraville and is expected to remove 9000 trucks from inner-city streets. The Andrews government announced on Tuesday it had ordered the first of two $50 million tunnel boring machines that are scheduled to be put to work early next year.
The state government has vowed to "throw the book" at violent youths, while federal home affairs minister cited an Age poll to double down on his claim that Victorians are too scared to go out as controversy continues over street gangs in Melbourne. Acting Premier James Merlino said the government was "not going to cop" street gang activity but insisted Victoria was safe. "We're going to tackle these crimes where they occur," Mr Merlino said.
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".
