The Berning Ntlemeza debacle appears to be a complicated one but in essence, it is quite simple. I am pressed for time so I hope I can quickly do justice to what has caused a great deal of confusion during the course of today, especially. Under normal circumstances, in instances where a court makes a decision which is subsequently appealed against (or when leave to appeal is sought against such decision), such appeal or application for leave to appeal suspends the operation of the decision.
Early last week and before I travelled to the Eastern Cape, I had a meeting with a gentleman who works jointly for an estate agent and as a property consultant for three banks. Our meeting was in relation to the property I currently reside in and for which I had put in an offer. The owner of the property and I (despite widely divergent backgrounds on all fronts), come a long way and I met him many years ago, when he was my broker.
It is World Book Day today and although I don't really have the time, I thought I'd share what can possibly be described as my shortest article. When I requested my title, The Odysseys of Queen Ntoyi to be translated into isiMpondo I had no idea that I was possibly making history. I sent a query to Professor Jeff Peires, Adjunct Professor of History at Fort Hare University, about whether or not there had been any books published in isiMpondo.
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".
