Have you seen the giant, lycra-clad man cycling through Adelaide on a bike loaded with bread? His name is Chris Duffy and his sourdough cargo is something special. Chris runs Small World Bakery with his wife Emily out of a small bakery he built next to their family home near Langhorne Creek. They started small, making sourdough rye loaves a commercial-sized wood-fired brick oven (built by Chris and a mate). Emily delivered their first load to a cafe in Strathalbyn in 2008. The rest is history.
Not all sheds are man caves. South Australian Designer Kathryn Sproul creates magic for our well-known festivals from her Mile End studio. When design inspiration hits in the wee hours of the morning, Kathryn Sproul heads to the little shed in her back garden. It’s a small space, packed with rolls of fabric, handdrawn designs, rulers and ideas. When she’s not in here or onsite, she can usually be found hunting for the perfect yellow hues.
Devoted to local music? Chances are you’ve already met Spoz, the hairy gig-goer dedicated to documenting Adelaide’s live music scene. Spoz spends every weekend darting through beer-soaked crowds to get the best shot of musos in full flight. To the casual onlooker he looks a bit bonkers but this is pure dedication. On an average night Spoz snaps 1800 photos. Over the past 10 years he has uploaded commentary, observations, pics and video to his comprehensive blog Spoz’s Rant.
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".
