Claire Tucker, 36, is still in a critical condition in Cairns Hospital after she was found lying injured in a drain outside Stockland Shopping Centre in Earlville on Saturday about 9pm. The Redlynch beautician, who has a five-year-old boy, had been enjoying a day at the Cairns Cup and was believed to have attempted to walk into town after becoming separated from her friends.
This QLD woman shed 114kg to become a triathleteThis story originally appeared on The Cairns Post and is republished here with permission. Two years ago, Elena Goodall was facing a death sentence unless she took drastic action to address her obesity. Tipping the scales at 184kg, the 29-year-old’s doctor diagnosed her with type 2 diabetes and severe sleep apnoea. The Mount Isa resident decided to undergo gastric sleeve surgery, and followed this up by ditching junk food and exercising regularly.
Cairns North pensioner Suzanne Balsdon was concerned that her neighbours were going through packages left on the front door of her public housing unit, so she installed a security camera to deter the thieves, earlier this year. The plastic camera was not connected to any power, but within a few days of it being installed, she was contacted by the Department of Housing and Public Works who ordered her to remove it.
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".
