Talking about talking about dying with Dr Steve Philpot, Master of Communication. In the week that one of the states in Australia has pretty much managed to pass assisted dying legislation I had to reach for this Jellybean recorded at the College of Intensive Care Medicine ASM in Sydney this year. The state of Victoria, where I personally reside, has almost passed the assisted dying bill. It has been a fractious and bitter process at times. But it is all but done.
Android’s newest features are very often limited only to the latest version of the operating system. This can lead many to miss out on some great features as not everyone uses custom ROMs or can afford to buy a new phone every year. Thankfully though, 3rd-party applications are able to bring some of these feature to older devices and that’s what Nova Launcher is doing with Adaptive Icons in its latest stable update to version 5.5.
Google Home and the Google Assistant have a big advantage for certain features when compared to the competition. This is why so many users were frustrated that Google Home had yet to add support for managing calendars directly with your voice. This has finally changed though as multiple people are now spotting a new Calendar section within the Google application. With it, you can manage which calendars you want supported by the Google Assistant and which calendar you want set as your default.
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".
