As we have read and viewed the media describing the disastrous effect of Hurricanes Harvey on Texas and Irma in Florida, reminiscent of our own in 1938, we’re reminded of other weather difficulties here in the Northeast. These include storms Gloria plus Sandy and a large, sudden unnamed rainstorm in July 2009 that flooded basements, destroyed trees, damaged rural bridges and caused major power outages.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s coalition slipped further in a key opinion poll as a seventh Australian lawmaker with dual citizenship was engulfed in a constitutional crisis that threatens to undermine the legitimacy of the government. The Liberal-National coalition dropped one point to 46 percent against the main opposition Labor party on 54 percent, according to a Newspoll published in the Australian newspaper on Monday. Turnbull’s own standing with voters also declined.
Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s board has scrapped short-term bonuses for the 2017 financial year for Chief Executive Officer Ian Narev and other group executives as the nation’s largest lender faces allegations it breached money-laundering and terrorist-financing laws. In reaching its decision, the board “gave consideration to risk and reputation matters impacting the group,” Chairman Catherine Livingstone said in a statement Tuesday.
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".
