“THERE were mobs of men fighting — usually with one American being kicked to the death in the middle.”It was the World War II, but this incident did not happen on the battlefields of Europe or the Pacific. Rather, it took place on the central streets of Brisbane. In a letter to her mother dated November 28, 1942, a young unnamed Australian woman married to an American described the “frightful” riot that became known as “The Battle Of Brisbane”.
The man responsible for delivering daily news to millions of Australians was about to also deliver to thousands of people the great artists — Matisse, Picasso, Dali, Modigliani, Cezanne and more. Sir Keith Murdoch was not just the country’s most powerful media baron, but also a patron of the arts and a passionate private collector. He opened the eyes of many Australians to modern art — but also unwittingly safeguarded some of the world’s great art works as the Nazis rampaged across Europe.
A YOUNG woman's body has been found washed up at a popular Sydney beach this morning and a man remains missing, as choppy weather hinders search efforts. The woman, in her 20s, has been identified as an international student from the University of New South Wales.
Why do humans like eating bacon so much when it comes from this insanely cute animal? Eat spinach and boring stuff like silverbeet. You'll survive I promise. But awesome pigs like this won't. Don't eat meeeeeeeeee.... https://t.co/GvzhsFNRzV
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".
