Crossbench senator Nick Xenophon has announced he will be quitting federal politics and returning to state politics in South Australia. He has told a press conference in Adelaide that next year's state election would be critically important, with South Australia at a crossroad. Senator Xenophon said Labor and the Liberals in his home state were more interested in fighting about who got their snouts deeper in the trough, rather than fighting for real people.
A new zero-tolerance policy towards drugs and alcohol is being opposed by staff in a South Australian Government department amid concerns about plans for workplace testing and whether there's any legal authority behind the move. For months, the Public Service Association has been pushing back against a policy that all employees of the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) must not have any amount of alcohol or illicit drugs in their systems while at work.
I am writing this letter during the Broncos v. Bills game as, following the lead of many of your players, I decided to take a knee on Broncos football. That is to say I opted not to watch the game. Allow me to explain why. Some background. I was raised in Colorado and have enjoyed attending many Broncos games over the years. I am a third-generation military veteran, having served on ships in literally every ocean of the world - as two of our sons did.
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".
