Hong Kong’s regulatory board for social workers has found pro-democracy activist Ken Tsang guilty of misconduct after his conviction for pouring liquid over police officers and resisting arrest during the 2014 Occupy protests. The Social Workers Registration Board (SWRB) remains undecided on how to punish Tsang, and will meet again in August, local media reported. Tsang, who formerly worked in youth outreach, was jailed for five weeks earlier this year for his part in the incident in October 2014.
An ethnic Asian’s job application to work as a native English tutor was rejected by an agency on the grounds that its client – a tutorial centre – prefers Caucasian applicants. It sparked an outcry online from fellow teachers who said they also faced the same problem. Whatsapp screenshots seen by HKFP showed the applicant had sought to apply for a full-time native English tutoring position advertised by Tri Idea Group. The agency matches education centres, tutors and students.
Hong Kong’s Hospital Authority has backtracked on its refusal to hand the body of a miscarried 16-week-old foetus to his mother, but the couple is waiting for the Catholic diocese to revise its rules in order to bury him.
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".
