I am primarily a technology journalist for ZDNet. Based in Sydney, Australia and mainly covering telecommunications and federal government technology and the associated political issues that go with it.
New Zealand Labour Leader Jacinda Ardern has said that at just 37 years old, she won't be a "politics as usual" prime minister should her party form government after Saturday's election. Ardern also said she had been in politics for nine years, and that the Labour team is made up of experienced politicians. "I don't want to bring politics as usual, so there is some benefit to the age and the experience I bring to the table as well." "I approach things differently," she said.
It was Leach-McGill's first tweet in 15 months, since he retweeted a pro-Safe Schools tweet on March 3, 2016. His account has only tweeted 23 times, and has not responded to requests to comment. The tweet went viral on Monday morning, with ABC News, Huffington Post, Junkee and LGBTI media in Australia all reporting on the alleged poster as part of coverage of the upcoming postal survey on same-sex marriage.
Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark, was denied access to the popular Jade Buddha bar in Brisbane on Friday night because he did not have identification. Under new Queensland laws effective from July 1, people entering hundreds of bars in the state after 10pm need to have their ID scanned into a system that allows the bar to cross-check the patrons against a database of people who have been causing trouble at other venues across the state.
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".
