The ship arrived at the search zone in the Indian Ocean after it was diverted from its trip from Madagascar to Melbourne. Hoegh Autolines spokesman Ben Stack said the car carrier arrived on the scene at 8pm AEST after a request from Australian authorities. Mr Stack said he could not confirm whether those on board the ship had sighted the objects depicted in the satellite imagery. “They want to help in any way they can and they’re going to do as the Australian authorities ask them to,” he said.
Photo by Hello Pinecone During days at home with my little monkey, I like to have something light playing in the background. During breastfeeds, I'll pop in my earphones and lose myself while cuddling my cutie. And, when out on pram walks, I often feed my craving for adult conversation while bub soaks up the scenery.
CONDEMNED Bali nine ringleaders Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan have been given 72 hours notice that they will be killed by firing squad over their role in a 2005 heroin-smuggling plot. Indonesian authorities today dashed any hope that the pair would be granted mercy when it confirmed that the two young Australians are among a group of death-row prisoners to be executed next week.
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".
