“Never. I’ve never wanted to come to Adelaide….And yet I’m thrilled to be here.”And Adelaide was more than happy he could finally stop by on his first visit to Australia in nearly two decades. In his last visit, in the late 90s, he courted controversy when he described Melbourne as “the anus of the world.” The comic insisted it was a reference to Melbourne’s geographic location - but still offered an apology as Aussie fury grew.
A BRIGHT “fast-moving” light with a green trail across the sky Friday night has captured the imaginations of at least a few locals who are this morning trying to get to the bottom of what it is they saw - or think they saw. Advertiser.com.au has received and read a smattering of reports about the strange light, which one expert says could have been a meteor or space junk re-entering the earth’s atmosphere. A Reddit user reported seeing “what I can only guess was a meteor” pass over Henley Beach.
Now just think about the grit and determination required to do it without arms. This is the incredible true story of William Smith — the most famous South Australian artist you’ve likely never heard of. Born in Adelaide in 1887, William Joseph George Smyth (later Smith) started life against the odds, even for the brutish terms of life in 19th Century Australia.
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".
