Sophie Monk is breaking the Bachelor franchise for the better. Sophie Monk has been Australia’s Bachelorette for exactly one day and she has saved the Bachelor franchise. I’m calling it. I’m back on board. I want The Love Show. I want the ballgowns and the drama and the B-grade rugby team full of Coles Bakery plain cheese rolls who are butting heads for her affections. I want it all. I’m not alone either. The love for Monk was overwhelming on social media during last night’s season premiere.
This is the best. I may not know much about New York Fashion Week shows — and everything I do know has pretty much come from Sex and the City and famous people’s Instagram stories — but, on the surface, they’re not renowned for being the most lively or accessible of affairs. Even when they’re blasting techno and laser beams, it’s all stern faces and polite claps and silent judgements. But now I see that’s this is a totally unfair characterisation.
The first trailer looks amazing. Venice Film Festival kicked off this week and yeah… you’re going to hear an awful lot about Darren Aronofsky’s mother! in the foreseeable future. But a much less hyped film is also making a significant splash and it’s from one of Australia’s best directors! Sweet Country is an upcoming Australian feature directed by Warwick Thornton (Samson and Delilah, We Don’t Need A Map, The Darkside).
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".
