Three of the 10 bridges that the National-led government promised to two-lane in the 2015 by-election cannot or should not be built, and there are no firm plans for three more, according to NZ Transport Agency documents. NZTA has found no economic or safety reasons to build three of the bridges, while environmental reasons outweigh any benefits.
The New Orleans Pelicans have two supremely talented NBA players on the roster in Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. In the coming days much will be written on how teams with such talent should, or always have, made the playoffs. Our own Oleh Kosel has been teasing this work in recent podcasts. Whoever you ask rates Davis and Cousins highly. Sports Illustrated’s Top 100 puts AD at 8th overall and Cousins at 23rd. ESPN’s NBA Rank is even more optimistic with Davis at 6th and Boogie at 17th.
Solomon Hill ranked second on the New Orleans Pelicans last year with 2,374 minutes played. He was tasked as the defensive stopper, drawing the opposition’s most threatening wing scorer. He performed as well as can be reasonably expected in this role. Superstars are going to score points, but wings like Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard scored fewer points less efficiently against the Pelicans than their season-long averages.
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".
