Malcolm Turnbull: "This is going to be our focus next year." CANBERRA -- It is a political reboot that the Turnbull Government desperately needs but it is one that, according to at least one respected economist, the economy and budget do not. Middle income tax cuts are suddenly on the offer with the opposition dismissing it as smoke and mirrors and a "fistful of dollars" from Malcolm Turnbull. "It is like free beer tomorrow, isn't it?" Bill Shorten said on Tuesday.
Malcolm Turnbull: "I am very romantic and that is the old romantic in me." CANBERRA -- The most iconic Australian band in history is in the news at the moment for the saddest of reasons as fans say farewell to AC/DC guitarist, songwriter and founder Malcolm Young. The 64-year-old has died in Sydney after a period of ill health and as part of paying tributethe best and loudest of loud AC/DC tracks are being belted out. The death of Young is big deal.
CANBERRA -- Here we go again on the dodgy business of political donations. Feel like we have done this dumb, grubby dance before? Oh we have! We have danced so much our arms and legs are dead tired, but still on we go throughout the long night. What was Sam Dastyari thinking in allowing a donor with strong links to the Chinese government to pay his bill after he exceeded travel entitlements? Was it a gift? Or a donation?
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".
