It is a backyard sporting dream, the sort that has been the beginning of many great Australian sporting careers. Boxer Caitlin Parker has no doubt she will be Australia's first Olympic gold medallist in the sport. "I am such a competitive person. I always have been. It is going to push me so hard." Under the guidance of her coach 'Fox', the 21-year-old trains in a suburban backyard in Perth. Parker works out there three times a day, as she aims to create history.
With the lingering pay deal overshadowing the game, there are plenty of distractions for the Australian women's cricket team ahead of this month's World Cup. And all-rounder Elyse Villani admits there is an element of anxiety about the future. "I think it is obviously a little bit stressful if you really think about it," she said.
Josh Kennedy is the best key forward in the game and, perhaps, West Coast's most important player. As he sunk into the Eagles dugout after appearing to seriously hurt his lower leg against GWS, West Coast's premiership hopes seemed to begin sinking with him. The Eagles would go on to lose to the Giants by eight points — and Kennedy's injury was on the mind of his coach. "I did see him out of the corner of my eye. He couldn't walk, so I slipped into panic mode a little bit," Adam Simpson 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 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".
