Former AFL premiership captain Barry Hall has been caught on video striking two opponents in a local footy grand final, his last game of competitive football. Footage showed Hall, who was playing for Labrador against Palm Beach-Currumbin in the Queensland AFL final at the weekend, drop the ball in a tackle before being held by an opponent for a number of seconds. Hall then strikes his opponent in the face with a wild left hook, sending him into the ground.
A procedure to create "three-person babies" could be on its way to Australia, with a campaign launched to overhaul a law on human cloning in an attempt to prevent babies from suffering a severe genetic disorder. Changes are under way in Britain to allow women at risk of having a baby with potentially fatal forms of mitochondrial disease to undergo a controversial procedure known as mitochondrial donation.
When Ella Crofts began feeling a dull ache in her right knee, the last thing she imagined was that a flesh-eating ulcer was chewing through her skin. "I started feeling pain in my knee in early April," the 13-year-old said. "Slowly, it got worse as my knee became swollen and inflamed until one day the skin started breaking down and I started to see an open wound that just kept getting bigger and bigger."
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".
