Brauz CEO Lee Hardham, a former advertising executive of News Corp (publisher of The Australian), said despite the obvious benefits, about 50 per cent of retail stores still didn’t have an online presence. “I was sitting in the car after talking to retailers and I realised the advice I was providing to them was setting them up for failure,” he said. “Google only has so much effective space, so if you’re not on that first page on Google it’s useless.
As the backlash against tech’s toxic “bro” culture continues, the focus is shifting to what companies can do to empower under-represented groups and create an environment of inclusion. Company co-founder Ben Webster said everyone in his company worked a four-day week, a policy that initially came from his own needs as a parent. “I wanted my children to know who I was,” he told The Australian. “We work really flexible hours; we call ourselves a remote-first company.
Housing and Public Works Minister Mick de Brenni announced last month the discovery of potentially non-fire retardant cladding on Brisbane's Princess Alexandra Hospital. His office was due to receive test results last week, however additional tests are now under way after primary results were uncertain. Mr de Brenni was quick to allay fears at the time of the announcement, saying the risk of a fire incident at the hospital was low.
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".
