Melbourne online gamer Kathleen — who goes by the name LOSERFRUIT — uses online gaming streaming platform Twitch to make her living. But she knows there is a darker side to the job: online trolls, abuse and sexual harassment. And for some, stalkers. “I get a bit of heat sometimes,” Kathleen tells 60 Minutes’ Peter Stefanovic in an interview about the rise and rise of e-gaming to air on Sunday night. Stupid things like “you’re not good, because you’re a girl”, “attention-seeking whore”.
Candice Hedge’s gives her chilling account in an interview to air on Channel 7’s current affairs flagship Sunday Night. “He looked at me and I looked at him,” Candice, her neck bandaged, tells Melissa Doyle. The 34-year-old Brisbane woman was one of 48 people injured by three terrorists who killed eight people, driving into pedestrians on London Bridge before going on a stabbing rampage in Borough Market last Saturday night.
It’s not only kids who find the first days of school hard, according to a new study by the Hunter Institute of Mental Health which surveyed more than 450 “early career” teachers in NSW. The transition from university student to teacher of students sees two-thirds of new teachers struggle with their workload and time management, and 60 per cent feel work-life balance eludes them. They bring enthusiasm, but are largely unprepared for the demands on their time.
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".
