If it wasn't for Michael Jackson, Kaine Sultan-Babij might have gone to work in the mines, like his Dad. That was what most people did in his home town of Whyalla on the South Australian coast. His father, John Babij, drove the train that carried iron ore from the mines back to the Whyalla Steelworks. Babij had arrived in town as a child with his Croatian migrant parents, who had heard there were jobs to be had in the area.
A wedding bouquet soaring through a blue Australian sky. Toni Collette in a huge, white frock, grinning ear-to-ear. Rachel Griffiths in a curly wig, lip-syncing to ABBA’s Waterloo. Most of us remember Muriel’s Wedding in flashes of colour and snatches of song. So it seems fitting that the story is coming to the stage as an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza. More than 20 years after the film’s release in 1994, Muriel’s Wedding the Musical is being brought to the stage by Sydney Theatre Company.
Even people who have never seen an episode of Poldark know about the scything scene: Aidan Turner as the show's title character, stripped to his sculpted waist and sweating as he works the land. Then, in series two of the costume drama set in 18th-century Cornwall, came the tin-bath scene. Turner's glistening torso once again in the starring role, this time being sponged by Eleanor Tomlinson, who plays Ross Poldark's wife, Demelza.
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".
