Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is already dominating the charts on Amazon but the book, which documents explosive details from within US President Donald Trump's White House, has not yet reached Australian stores. Written by Michael Wolff, the book has made outrageous claims about the first year in the Trump White House. Trump has fired back at the book tweeting. "Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book."
The weather is set to stay perfect in Brisbane and along the Queensland coast for the coming week while the southern interior of the state faces sweltering conditions. The heatwave affecting Sydney, which could hit temperatures of up to 40 degrees in the city, will slowly move north to areas such as Thargomindah and Birdsville. Those areas are no strangers to temperatures of 45 degrees or more but for this time of year, it is about five to eight degrees above average.
The FIFA 18 video game and the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child theatre production have both turned to a Queensland start-up to protect them from bots. Publisher Electronic Arts had a problem with automated programs known as bots abusing one of their most profitable products, the football simulator FIFA. The bots were taking over the in-game auction house, where users trade, sell and buy power-ups for players, snapping up all the bargains and then reselling for a much higher price.
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".
