There has to be a planning PhD in Canberra's shopping centres, which have such a clear and unmistakable hierarchy and logic to them, but such a mad disconnect. Each suburb has its box-set shopping centre, one main street frontage, half a dozen or so shops in a row. Each cluster of suburbs has its "group centre", with a big carpark, mini-mall, and anchor supermarket tenant.
The loose-fill asbestos at Ainslie shops will finally be removed from the first floor above Edgar's Inn from October 3, in an operation the owner says will take just two weeks. Building owner Jeff Darwin has contracted removalist Caylamax to remove the Fluffy asbestos from the first-floor ceiling space at the corner building. The first floor will be wrapped in plastic, and the popular corner pub below will be closed for the removal operation.
More than four years after opening with a rebel yell, full of chaos and confidence, Eighty-six has established itself as more than a one-hit wonder, settling into the Lonsdale Street food strip like an old-timer. It's still busy, noisy but not ridiculously so, and with people packing through the door to stand at the bar with a drink while they wait for tabled to turn over. It's popular and rightly so, with up-to-date food and wine, good service and relaxed feel.
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".
