Two Welshmen who masterminded the swashbuckling British and Irish Lions series win nearly half a century ago inadvertently set the All Blacks’ platform for Rugby World Cup glory. Lydia Monin travels to the coal-mining village where it all began to turn this sporting theatre of 1971 into a film. Behind the Bible-black chapels and coal-mine facades of Cefneithin lurks a secret as dark as the anthracite dust that once shrouded this Welsh mining village.
James Shaw gets out of the taxi, across from his favourite cafe in Wellington’s Aro Valley. But instead of just popping across the road, he walks 15m up the pavement to a pedestrian crossing, crosses there, and walks back down the other side to the cafe. God, the Greens don’t even jaywalk. Shaw lives just above Aro Valley, home of the Greens’ most productive polling booth in the country.
Far North GP Lance O’Sullivan is fighting poverty’s effects but not everyone backs him. Update: Dr Lance O'Sullivan was named New Zealander of the Year in 2014. Kaitaia airport is a thin strip of tarmac, a large shed and a few car parks. Dr Lance O’Sullivan has come down to pick me up, which is a relief. It’s cold. Winter has hit and a windless, dank chill hugs the town.
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".
