AUSTRALIAN university students are punching above their weight, making the finals of aviation giant Airbus’s prestigious international design competition for the third time, while up against the best and brightest young innovators from around the world. “It’s all so amazing and exciting and we genuinely believe our idea has the potential to positively affect thousands of lives across the globe,” RMIT student Kerry Phillips, 25, said.
This is so you know you’re not the only one running your fingers through your hair, puffing your cheeks out and either sighing or shouting “what the hell?” as each bill arrives. Let’s start with electricity — sure to plug into shared frustration and outrage. My Origin accounts show over the past five years the cost of power per kilowatt-hour has increased by 12.42 per cent. Bad enough. However, worse is the supply cost which has shot into the stratosphere, increasing by a whopping 346 per cent.
I'll come back to a gaping hole in her argument in a minute because first I'd like to draw special attention to the invective she indulged in, for those who are agin her position are apparently: "breathtakingly dense", possess "a special brand of weapons-grade stupidity", display "a level of imbecility that leaves you wondering how they dress themselves in the morning", are "disingenuous" and "counterproductive", "desperate to inject racism in the debate", "hypersensitive", "dim" and, of course, "miserable self-loathing Leftists".
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".
