The Richmond Club Hotel – like any venue on Swan Street over the next week – is understandably pumped that the Tiges are into the Grand Final. Also exciting is that the club’s midfielder-forward-all-round-football-champion Dustin Martin is an unbackable favourite to win the AFL’s best and fairest award. The pub will give away a pot of Carlton Draught to anyone inside the venue tonight if Dusty wins the Brownlow Medal. And he will. So you’re getting a beer.
Falls Festival returns to Lorne, Marion Bay and Byron this New Year, before travelling to Fremantle in January. This year’s line-up is a belter, with Fleet Foxes, Flume, Run the Jewels, The Kooks, Vince Staples and one half of the Gallagher brothers on the bill. Today Falls announced a bunch of sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney for Liam Gallagher, The Kooks, Jungle, Everything Everything, Foster the People and Flint Eastwood. American rapper Dram will also do a show in Melbourne.
On the one hand, who isn’t excited for tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones? The sixth episode in the season. The penultimate episode of the season. The episode with a trailer that makes Jon Snow and his merry band of brothers look like an Arctic tundra boy band. On the other hand, how on God’s green earth have we already reached episode six? How is this season already so close to being over? The only way to limit the pain is to ice it with some frozen cream.
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".
