Police are still waiting to speak to the teenager injured in an backyard explosion west of Brisbane on Friday amid claims he was deliberately targeted. Michael Boggan, 15, has lost almost all of his fingers after a golf ball-like device filled with explosives detonated in his hands on Friday afternoon. Three other teenagers, aged between 15 and 18, were taken to Ipswich Hospital on Friday with minor injuries and have since spoken to police.
The author of an interim report into bullying at the CFA has revealed she was a target herself. "I was intimidated and threatened about my own role and own wellbeing," Professor Caroline Taylor told Fairfax Media. "[I] was also told if I ever reported to anybody about the treatment of myself and what was done to me there, that CFA had long arms and CFA knew how to play dirty." In June, after year spent trying to get CFA top brass to respond to her report, Taylor went on stress leave.
One of the Australian holidaymakers who witnessed the deadly van rampage in Barcelona was also among the first on the scene of Melbourne's Bourke Street tragedy earlier this year. Melbourne Metropolitan Fire Brigade commander Graham O'Sullivan is holidaying with his wife in Barcelona and was drinking on the rooftop bar of a hotel when he heard a car being driven through the popular Las Ramblas tourist boulevard below.
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".
