BUDDING drone photographer Craig Kitson is on a mission - a mission to find a mysterious swimmer. The 39-year-old father of two was out taking photos at Mosman Beach this week when he captured this stunning shot of a woman making her way through the crystal clear blue sea. When he showed his wife and sister-in-law the picture they both said if they were the person in the photo they would want a copy. And so began Craig’s mission - to find the mysterious swimmer and give her a copy of the image.
HE IS known for downing pint of beer, shedding a tear and now former Prime Minister Bob Hawke can add singer to his bow. This week the Labor Party legend got up on stage at the Woodford Folk Festival to belt out our country’s unofficial anthem, Waltzing Matilda . And for a man who is verging on his 90s, he did a pretty good job. He’s no John Williamson, but our third-longest serving prime minister managed to carry the tune with as much gusto and passion.
IF YOU thought koalas were cute and cuddly, think again. These two feisty foes have well and truly shattered any illusion of the marsupials being passive, docile creatures as they punched on in the middle of a road in South Australia this week. This battle between the gladiators of the gumtrees was filmed by a passing motorist, Marguerite Smith, on Thursday and has since gone viral with her Facebook post being viewed more than 9 million times and shared almost 200,000 times.
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".
