The Australian Ballet says Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, premiering in Melbourne tomorrow night, is the biggest production it has ever undertaken and one of the most physically challenging. Created by acclaimed British choreographer Christopher Wheeldon for the Royal Ballet, the story is a modern take on the Lewis Carroll classic. Wheeldon said he had taken some liberties with the story and used new technology in theatre, projection and puppetry to tell it.
Planning and fire experts say there may be more than 5,000 buildings in Victoria that contain non-compliant cladding, similar to that used on the Grenfell tower in London. At least 80 people died earlier this year, when fire ripped through the apartment building covered in polyethylene (PE) cladding. The ABC's Four Corners program has revealed Australian suppliers of aluminium-composite cladding knew panels with a PE core were highly flammable, a decade before the deadly London fire.
A Beyonce-inspired social media campaign to save a Melbourne lawn bowls club is facing a counter-campaign from local netballers, who have made their own video to support plans for a sports complex. The Chadstone Bowls Club video All The Bowling Ladies, based on the Beyonce hit Single Ladies, was produced to fight a proposal to redevelop the bowling club site.
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".
