Based in the outer Melbourne suburb of Bayside, ANCA is one of an increasingly rare cohort of Australian manufacturers. The precision tool manufacturer employs more than 1000 staff globally, with 450 in Australia, and turned over $180 million last year, but when its power supply contracts were up for renewal co-founder Pat Boland was in for a nasty shock.
Hailing from Melbourne, best friends Vera Yan and Katia Santilli are most comfortable dressed all in black. But after moving to Bondi the pair embraced the area's lifestyle and found themselves attending exercise classes on a daily basis and getting around in their activewear. "We saw activewear was not just for the gym anymore," says Yan. "There was a lot of technical apparel available like Lululemon and Nike but there was not the fashion option."
One of the first places dedicated solely to serving up the spicy, crunchy chicken was Gami Chicken & Beer, a business started by four university friends. In 1996, Jun Lee, Roi Yoon, Max Ji and Ayden Jung were all Korean students studying at Monash University in Melbourne when they made a deal to start a business together in 10 years. "I came here as an international student and I barely spoke English," Lee 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".
