Salmon farming giant Tassal has been granted a permit to explore salmon farming off a swathe of King Island's eastern coastline. The permit grants exploratory access to an area about 124 square kilometres off Nine Mile Beach, extending up to five and a half kilometres off the coast. The announcement comes after the Government slated the North West Coast and King Island as potential fish farm locations in August.
Residents of Queenstown in north-west Tasmania believe there has been an extraordinary polluting event that has turned the Queen River an even deeper shade of orange. From the 1880s, and for almost a century, the river was used by the nearby Mt Lyell copper mines as a drain. An estimated 100 million tonnes of sulfidic tailings were dumped into the river — the worst case of acid mine drainage in Australia.
Queenstown's historic Paragon Theatre held its grand opening on Saturday after extensive renovations. The art deco cinema is now a multi-purpose venue that can host gigs, plays, and functions including weddings. The Paragon first opened on October 28, 1933 with the crime comedy She Done Him Wrong, starring Mae West. Co-owner Joy Chappell thought opening on the same date with the same film would be symbolic value for an old institution given "another chance".
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".
