The dual citizenship fiasco sparked more chaotic scenes as Labor ramped up the pressure on Barnaby Joyce to step down from cabinet, the government resisted Senate demands to release critical legal advice and a conservative crossbencher called for Parliament to be suspended.
The family of the Melbourne woman missing in the Canadian wilderness believe she may still be alive, and are calling for the Australian government to provide extra resources to find her. Sophie Dowsley, 34, has been missing since taking a hiking trip around Statlu Lake on July 8 with her Canadian boyfriend Greg Tiffin, 44. The lake is in the Rocky Mountains, about three hours drive from Vancouver. Mr Tiffin's body was pulled from the lake by a dive team on July 18.
A bottle of 1951 Penfolds Grange Hermitage that was originally given away for free has sold at auction for a "staggering" $51,750. The price makes it one of the most expensive bottles ever sold in this country. The 1951 was the first vintage ever made of what is now widely considered Australia's greatest wine. It is not known how many bottles remain in existence, but only about 160 cases were produced, and the number of bottles still in existence is thought to be fewer than 20.
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".
