Growing up, my mom had two mottoes: “Get there before it opens” and “Never pay full price.” (This seems to be a common mom saying.) I’ve fully accepted that my love of sleep will never get me anywhere at the crack of dawn, but I’m having a little more trouble processing that second piece of advice. To this day I remember receiving a digital camera for Christmas one year… only to have it fail to turn on.
The woman said she had no recollection of the funds going into her bank account. A Ballarat woman has admitted to fraudulently claiming more than $26,000 from Centrelink. Amanda Burton claimed the government funds 140 times over seven years, the Ballarat Magistrates Court was told. Burton, who represented herself in court, said she could not remember the funds going into her bank account. She said at the time of the offending, she was in a troubled relationship with her then partner.
Whenever they come up in my Facebook feed, I always click on those articles that offer tips on how to go on a date without breaking the bank. You know —things like “10 Dates for Under $10!” and “The Perfect Date … on a Budget!” Somehow those articles always seem to end in exclamation points. But they never seem to apply to my situation. In general, I’m pretty happy with my life. I own my own business and my own (hobbit) house in a city I love.
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".
