You’d be hard pressed to find a bloke more passionate about our state than Cosi. It’s written all over his home – we take an exclusive look at his renovation…It is the biggest in Adelaide. Over half a tonne of 16-millimetre glass was used to make it and 10 blokes (including Cosi) hauled the custom-made beast into the wall cavity. The tank holds two-tonne of water and is home to a beautiful collection of fish including African cichlids and piranha-like silver dollars.
There was something special about the 1950s. It was a time when rock-n-roll filled eardrums, people hung out in diners, and pastel kitchens were the heart of the home. For one Adelaide couple, the era lives on in their suburban 1955 home. From the outside it looks like any old Adelaide pad – an old Bondwood caravan and a truck with the numberplate ‘RETRO-2’ are the only indication of what lies behind closed doors.
Comedian Merrick Watts has covered a fair bit of turf in his time. The Sydney-based Triple M radio presenter has chased radio ratings across the country with Triple J and NovaFM but it’s Adelaide that has him by the bollocks. “When I talk about Adelaide, I forget to be a comedian,” he says as we clamber into a Fritz car (Mez is from out of town, so we can’t use his preferred mode of transport – his motorbike). It’s true. He’s uncharacteristically serious.
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".
