A Papua New Guinea rugby league team has captured the hearts and hopes of its nation with a chance to win Queensland's state competition. The PNG Hunters only joined the Queensland Cup in 2014 and will play in their first grand final this coming Sunday in Brisbane against the Sunshine Coast Falcons. The team dominated the Queensland state competition, winning the minor premiership and captain Ase Boas the best and fairest. Boas said the team already felt like winners before the grand final.
The first refugees from Australia's offshore detention centres to be resettled in the United States could land in the US within a week. Fifty-four men, women and children from Manus Island and Nauru have been told they have been accepted into the US Refugee Admissions Program, under a deal struck between Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and former US President Barack Obama.
About 50 refugees on Manus Island and Nauru will be told today that they have been granted resettlement in the United States. The refugees have been given notice that they will receive a decision on their refugee admission to the US. The ABC understands their applications have been approved and that they'll arrive in the US by the end of the month. Rohingya refugee Jalaluddin Mohammad is one of the men on Manus Island who has been approved.
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".
