Giving in to "hysteria" on aviation security is "precisely the outcome that the terrorists seek" one of Australia's main regional airlines has said, as it rejects moves towards greater security. The Federal Government has ordered a review of security amid concern that there is no screening of regional airport passengers on planes weighing less than 20 tonnes. The move comes in the wake of an alleged plot to blow up a plane by using a bomb hidden in a meat grinder.
South Australian babies are increasingly needing treatment in hospital for dental issues, and sugary foods and drinks — as well as a lack of brushing — are being blamed by experts. In the past 12 months, 2,500 children under the age of eight needed dental treatment under general anaesthetic. That is a 55 per cent increase over the past decade. What is concerning dentists is that figure includes 24 children who are not yet one year old.
A South Australian man will go to court this week in yet another bid to quash his conviction for murdering a teenage girl in the early 1970s. But the Frits Van Beelen case is more than just a renewed attempt by a man to clear his name after 45 years. The latest move will see Australia's highest court more clearly define the boundaries of laws designed to ensure that those with "fresh and compelling" evidence of their innocence don't rot behind bars.
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".
