I analyse datasets, write news stories and create visualisations and digital interactive tools for The Australian Financial Review newspaper and website. My areas of interest include political, budget, education, economic and legal data.
"This is a transition phase. I have been meeting what you could refer to as 'concerned members'. I have personally been talking to them on the phone and I'll be meeting with them in person. "Being the new person, I don't have the legacy or background that the remaining five directors have. So it's probably easier for me to talk to people," Mr Youngberry told The Australia Financial Review in his first interview since taking on the role in mid-June.
The head of the panel looking at the way CPA Australia is run has sympathised with members angry at the state of the embattled accounting body but would not endorse a push to replace all of the remaining long-term directors. "I know there is a level of frustration. None of us like the circumstances," said panel head and former Commonwealth auditor-general Ian McPhee.
"We expect to be in a position to advise further details of how CPA Australia members and other interested stakeholders can engage directly with the independent review process in the next week," said the message from the panel, which also includes experienced directors Su McCluskey and Maryjane Crabtree and expert adviser Bob Baxt. "A consultative group comprising divisional presidents or their representatives is being formed and will meet with the panel on 31 July.
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".
