Those L-plates are there for a reason , and that reason is not to incite harassment by more experienced motorists. It is to be taught how to be safe and respectful road users. But how can novices meet this expectation when others set such poor examples? That yellow square with the big black letter is not a cue to tail gate, recklessly overtake, refuse to give way, hurl abuse or blare horns and intimidate, frighten or endanger lives.
IT WASN’T meant to be this way. Donna Duggan, a nurse from Wynnum, and Naseeb (Nas) Mfinanga, her Tanzanian husband, were supposed to grow old together, dividing their time between the wild plains of East Africa and the suburban comforts of Moreton Bay. Their children, son Rami, 11, and daughter Eisha, 5, were to experience the best of both worlds, embraced by loving parents for whom cultural and religious differences were never an issue.
What is happening to our children? How has anxiety come to cloud what should be the most carefree period in life ? These are questions parents, educators and health workers must ask, and answer, because too many of today’s little people have big problems. Unchecked, this means the wellbeing of tomorrow’s adults will also be dangerously compromised.
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".
