A huge stockpile of tyres at a Brisbane company appears not to have been cleared in the months before a fire broke out, despite orders from the Queensland Government. Large plumes of black smoke spewed into the air around Grindle Road in Rocklea on Tuesday, when thousands of tyres were burnt at the Tyremil recycling site.
The Commonwealth Bank will cut 150 staff from its Brisbane operations, shifting the work to employees in Sydney and Perth. The Finance Services Union (FSU) has hit out at the changes, saying affected staff will have little to no chance of finding other jobs at the bank. The back-end employees from the Brisbane team process home loan applications. It is understood 66 staff will depart by September 3, and a further 84 phased out between February 2018 and June 2018.
A rogue tyre recycling operator with a history of environmental breaches has lashed out at journalists at another fire at one of his businesses in Brisbane. Tony Di Carlo's Tyremil businesses were subject to environmental protection orders last year, due to the Queensland Government's concerns about fire risks at his Rocklea and Kingston sites. The ABC understands Tyremil was given until June 30 to comply with the orders or face the possibility of being shut down.
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".
