THE National Disability Insurance Scheme supports about hundreds of thousands of Australians with disabilities to live an ordinary life. But the NDIS can be complex, and we want to help simplify it for you. We’ll be running a live Q&A with AnglicareSA NDIS experts Emily Korir and Judi Kammerman from 12.30pm to answer all of your questions. AnglicareSA is a leading disability and mental health services provider that has been delivering services in the NDIS for the past three years.
THE National Disability Insurance Scheme might be having its teething problems, but approved plans continue emerge from the system for participants and their carers. The NDI Agency reports that almost 120,000 Australians are benefiting from the scheme as it rolls out across the country. New figures released for the NDIS until September 2017 show the number of people receiving support at has reached 119,501.
IN A first for the Sunday Mail ’s NDIS magazine and AnglicareSA, we will hold a live online forum for people with questions or comments about the National Disability Insurance Scheme. To be hosted by AnglicareSA NDIS experts Emily Korir and Judi Kammerman, the question and answer blog will run live for two hours on Monday, February 12, from 12.30pm to 2.30pm, the day after the magazine is published..
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".
