A Japanese man missing in Port Phillip Bay has been described as a keen fisherman. As the search for Junichi Yoshimura stretched into its third day on Sunday, Joel Farnan, owner of Zeally Bay Sourdough in Torquay, said his employee was adventurous and generous. "He got his car and then shortly afterwards bought a kayak and often he'd go on these expeditions and come back with fish and share them around the bakery," he said.
The worst of the wind storm that struck Melbourne is over after damaging homes, grounding planes, and blasting into the alpine region at 117km/h. Wind gusts reached the top speed at Mount Hotham just after midnight on Sunday, as the strongest wind storm since October last year moved east across the state. But Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Michael Efron said much milder conditions were expected on Sunday. "We'll see much lighter winds across the state," he said.
Canadian police brought in sniffer dogs and rescue teams from four districts over the weekend as the search for Australian woman Sophie Dowsley continues. The 34-year-old Melbourne woman has been missing in Canada since July 8, when she went on a hiking trip with her partner, Greg Tiffin, 44. His body was found by a dive team at Statlu Lake on July 18, but Ms Dowsley's family still holds out hope that she will be found alive.
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".
