A private school teacher in Melbourne's north-east has been charged by police after his colleague allegedly found child pornography images on a school computer. The teacher from Catholic Ladies College in Eltham was arrested and charged late last week after the inappropriate material was discovered by another member of staff. Detectives from the Banyule crime investigation unit charged a 30-year-old Hillside man with one count of knowingly possessing child pornography, a police spokeswoman said.
Melbourne's spring weather has sent records tumbling, with forecasters predicting the longest November heatwave in more than 150 years. The city has sweltered through its first taste of summer early this year, and if temperatures stay as high as predicted, it will be Melbourne's first seven-day spell of temperatures higher than 28 degrees in November since official records began in 1862.
The rattle of the W-class tram is a sound familiar to all Melburnians. Over the years, thousands of people have huddled on them to get to their chosen destination. Some have got married on them; others have enjoyed a meal while catching a glimpse of the city by night. The trams have been in operation for nearly a century, but now the fate of almost 200 of the cultural icons, sitting in storage in a leaky shed in Melbourne's inner west, remains up in the air.
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".
