SHOCK Noosa favourite, independent Sandy Bolton, says whoever wants her backing will have to woo her by fulfilling promises, including a new enterprise hub and protecting the Noosa River and Noosa brand. She said she had no preference for who should form Government, only that, as an "unashamed" Noosa-first independent, she would demand long-promised local improvements be delivered to her constituents.
Kisangani, a city of some 2m people at the very heart of Africa, is maybe the world’s most isolated big city. This is where the 1,200 kilometres of the Congo river ends, before bending south at the rapids that become the Lualaba river. It is where, 150 years ago, Henry Morton Stanley pushed through with his retinue of soldiers and porters, crossing from Indian Ocean to Atlantic for the first time. These days, in one direction, it is only slightly more accessible.
Fears of suicide have turned to suspicions of murder for Aaron Flynn’s family. Fears of suicide have turned to suspicions of murder for Aaron Flynn’s family. HOW does a loving dad simply disappear? From daily calls to the daughter he adores to not a trace other than a report from a motorist passing him on a desolate road in western Queensland carrying a jerry can and looking for a ride? The questions haunt the family of Sunshine Coast father of one Aaron Flynn.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
