Politicians, police and community members have been locked in a heated debate about African youth crime in Victoria. The main bone of contention is whether or not there is in fact a crisis. We've drilled down into the latest crime stats and found the data is murky and can be used to support both sides. People born in Sudan make up just 0.1 per cent of Victoria's total population, or about 6,000 people. Most of those live in Melbourne, mainly in the western and south-eastern suburbs.
Two years after tennis authorities announced a sweeping review of the sport's integrity regime, fans are still waiting to see how they'll clean up the sport. In 2016, a global scandal overshadowed the Australian Open after news reports out of London linked top-ranked players to corruption. That sparked tennis's global governing bodies to launch an independent review panel to examine anti-corruption protocols and resources, including the global Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU).
The Ashes may have been returned to Australian soil but while the players prepare for a dead rubber Boxing Day test, another war is being waged behind the scenes. The TV broadcast rights for the next five years of the game are due to expire next year and the field to pick them up is wide open. Channel Nine has refused to pay a multi-million-dollar fee for the final bid in cricket's TV rights auction. That means the unmdisputed home of cricket for the past 40 years could lose its title.
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".
