5FM DJ Nick Hamman revisits some incredible moments from his Sho’t Left exploration of our country. Picture: Instagram‘Before travelling overseas, I would advise people to get to know this country first,” says Nick Hamman. The 5FM DJ, who is on the airwaves on weekdays from 8am to 10am and on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm, embarked on a Heritage Tour at the start of September. “We are doing this because domestic tourism has seen a three-year downturn,” Hamman explains.
If you ever find yourself Mpumalanga, make a point at popping in at these spots. Set in Precambrian dolomite rock first laid down about 3.8 billion years ago, when Africa was still part of Gondwana, the caves formed about 240 million years ago. There are a number of speleothem structures in the cave, known by names such as the â€œLowveld Rocketâ€? and the â€œScreaming Monsterâ€?. There are also microbial fossils of collenia, a cyanobacterium in the rock, formed 2 billion years ago.
I never knew how fun road trips could be in the right vehicle until I drove to Mpumalanga in Toyota’s new C-HR (which stands for Coupe High-Rider) crossover. As a female, I’m drawn to aesthetics as much as I am to speed. This explains why I never miss a Fast and the Furious movie. Okay, the boys in it are cute too - but that’s just a bonus, like adding specs to a new car. When I first sat in this sweet ride, the gadgets and electronics threw me.
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".
