The Governor-General has paid tribute to the man who saved the Waitangi Treaty Grounds for the nation. Dame Patsy Reddy was formally welcomed to Waitangi this morning at a pōwhiri on the treaty grounds. The ceremony hosted by Tai Tokerau elders marks a change in protocol after years of disruption at Te Tii marae. Dame Patsy was escorted onto treaty grounds by kuia Titewhai Harawira and Naida Glavish - and was met with the traditional challenge by three Ngāpuhi warriors.
The opening of the Toi Ngāpuhi art exhibition in Whangarei has drawn collectors from as far away as America. From modest beginnings in Kaikohe in 2004, the event now features high-quality work from more than 50 artists with Ngāpuhi connections, and has become the country's premiere iwi art exhibition. The original curators, Manos Nathan and Colleen Urlich, died in 2015.
Northland's only tertiary arts course must be saved, the region's economic development leader says. Northtec in Whangarei plans to stop teaching the Visual Arts degree course unless 10 more students enrol in the next 10 days. But the manager of Northland Inc David Wilson said artists were vital to society and the region's economy. He said a city about to build the unique Hundertwasser art centre should not be closing the door on local talent.
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".
