BENJAMIN Milward has told his mother he deserves whatever is coming to him for the rape and murder of French student Sophie Collombet, as she warned of the dangers of the drug "ice". Two weeks before he was to stand trial, Milward yesterday pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court in Brisbane over the horrific attack on Ms Collombet as she walked home in March 2014.
THE High Court will this morning hand down its decision on whether Gerard Baden-Clay's murder conviction should be reinstated.

THE Middle East's shimmering city of Dubai is a hot stopover for Aussies. Add 18 million litres of water and a shark-filled lagoon at Aquaventure Waterpark, located within Atlantis, The Palm resort, and you have the perfect flop-and-drop destination for the kids, too. Only, be warned: this time, the 'drop' is a near-vertical waterslide.
IF YOU walked out your front door today and vanished, how long would it be before someone raised the alarm: hours; a day; a night? When Tiffany Taylor disappeared from Logan, south of Brisbane, this year, it seemed to cause barely a ripple. Life had never done Tiffany any favours.
HE'S done it again. Notorious Gold Coast con man Peter Foster has worked his nefarious magic to convince a Federal Court judge to release him from prison six months early. Justice John Logan this morning ordered Foster's immediate release after the fraudster made secret submissions on why he should go free.
No presidential candidate can afford to ignore the drug damage in New Hampshire. Recently, Hillary Clinton found the heroin and methamphetamine epidemics while campaigning in the Northeast. She quickly offered a $10 billion proposal to increase treatment spending - an unserious answer to a crisis she made worse as Secretary of State.
May Bobbi Kristina Brown rest in peace. Brown was found unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31. Her last six months were spent in two Atlanta hospitals, a medical rehab facility and a hospice, with much of that time in an induced coma and on life support. She died on July 26.
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
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".
