Swing by Adelaide Central Market over the next fortnight and chances are you’ll bump in to artist Paul Whitehead. The self-taught artist was commissioned to create the bright murals on the walls surrounding the central escalators. Paul has a thing for markets. He cut his painting teeth at London’s Borough Market where he’d perch on a chair and paint what he saw. “Adelaide Central Market is comparable with Borough Market in terms of the feel.
This humble backyard shed is home to an impressive Star Wars collection – and most of it is up for grabs. Star Wars is known for being ‘A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…’ but right now, a suburban Adelaide shed is where you’ll find Rick van der Kolk’s out-of-this-world collection. His unbelievably well-organised Star Wars memorabilia is hidden away in his eight-by-four-metre shed. Four decades of obsession went into it.
When Rashidi Edward was a little boy growing up in Tanzania he stole soap from his father and sold it to raise money for movie tickets. “I shouldn’t tell you this but I’d come back and get my arse whipped for stealing. I just loved to go to the cinema.”At 24, Rashidi’s on-stage presence belies his age. The maturity he exudes may have something to do with a childhood spent in a refugee camp. Back then, acting wasn’t on his mind… agriculture was.
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".
