Jack Kennedy, a rising star on the turf, set out to make all the running in the 3.2km steeplechase in Clonmel. His horse, Robin Des Mana, jumped the first three fences safely, but pitched on landing after the fourth and his race appeared to be over when Kennedy slid out of the saddle. But the 18-year-old managed to cling onto his horse, despite being sandwiched between his ride and another horse, before hauling himself back on board.
But what exactly is blockchain? The technology, first conceptualised in 2008 by an anonymous person or persons known as Satoshi Nakamoto, is global online database that anyone with an internet connection can use, but it doesn’t belong to anyone. It’s a decentralised, fully digital and public record of records, known as blocks. Each block contains transaction data, a timestamp, and a hash pointer as a link to a previous block.
Australia had 268,600 apprentices and trainees at the end of June, 5 per cent less than at the same stage of 2016 and a whopping 48 per cent less than in 2012. The figures, from the National Centre for Vocational Education Research, show that the number of current apprentices and trainees has fallen for 16 of 20 consecutive quarters. This decline has been largely blamed on the removal of federal incentive payments for people who hire trainees.
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".
