PLANNING Minister John Rau’s backflip on aged-care development rules was a last-ditch bid to prevent the damage he knew was coming. Allowing aged-care developments worth more than $20 million to go straight to his desk – and bypass the usual council and State Government assessment panels – was always going to cause tension, as evidenced by Life Care’s plans for high rise homes that were shelved on Monday.
The five-day festival that celebrates and promotes emerging technology will be the first major event for the former Mitsubishi site, now described as “Australia’s first innovation district”. Visitors will be able to take part in workshops ranging from gaming to robotics and see some of the new technologies being developed in Australia and around the world. Hybrid World Adelaide chief executive Amanda Duthie said the festival was set up because it was high time SA had a celebration of technology.
The Flinders University lecturer, who is originally from France, has started a six-month campaign – South Australians in France – to uncover the WWI artefacts stashed away in people’s drawers and boxes. He hopes to reconnect families with the stories of their loved ones who served and create an interest in war history. “Australians are very mobile… and when people move from one place to another, a lot of this stuff gets thrown away,” Mr Fathi says.
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".
