We're in for a mostly sunny Friday with a forecast top of 22 degrees. It comes off the back of an overnight low of 3 degrees. Here's what's making headlines this morning, including some sad news from one of the capital's popular restaurants... The popular Farmhouse Restaurant at Pialligo Estate has been destroyed by fire. Crews were called to the blaze late Thursday afternoon. Tom McIlroy has led our coverage of the Pialligo fire here.
Move over Braddon and NewActon. Canberra's newest creative hotspot is emerging in a surprising location. Fyshwick, the suburb infamous for fireworks, porn and industrial land, is the new home of Dairy Road District, an almost 20,000-square-metre, warehouse-style precinct being developed by Canberra's Molonglo Group. A brewery, a coffee roaster, three indoor ski slopes, and a rock climbing centre are slated for the Dairy Road site next to the Jerrabomberra Wetlands.
The number of Canberra children receiving an Islamic education is set to more than double with a new school slated for the Gungahlin region. The existing Taqwa School is planning an expansion to Moncrieff to cater for 600 students from preschool to year 10. The move to Moncrieff would see Taqwa School enrolment numbers explode over the next few years. Education Directorate figures show the existing campus in Spence has just 66 pupils enrolled from preschool to year four.
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".
