You know something’s awry when Universities are at odds with a Labour government. Information released to the Herald under the Official Information Act regards the government’s ‘free fees’ policy, has revealed tensions, in the form of letters between Education Minister Chris Hipkins and the Chair of Universities NZ.
I see the latest group trying to take charge of America's gun control issue is students. Students who are fed up seeing their fellow classmates massacred. They seem to have momentum. Which is good, political change doesn’t come without political pressure, and the larger the body of voices the more likely it is to be heard. Two student events driven by the survivors of the Florida shooting include a mass national school walk out, and a march.
How is it possible that thugs like Liam Reid, convicted murderer and rapist, are still getting headlines and attention? How does he even get to “object” to anything? “Convicted murderer fails to stop documentary being made” read the headline. This is a man serving a life sentence with a 23 year minimum non parole period for raping and killing deaf woman Emma Agnew in Christchurch in 2007. I remember the case, the coverage, I remember how disgusted and sickened I felt at the time.
Daughter just emerged from her room where she’s bagged up clothes, shoes, toiletries, books, toys.. She said she wanted to give them to “children in need” & asked if we could send to Syria. I suggested somewhere closer to home. Anyone have a Womens Refuge contact I can drop to?
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".
