Be honest, you don’t really think of the queen as a mother. You think of her as the longest reigning monarch of England who also happens to have famous grandchildren and an obscene hat collection. The Queen Mum, you think, now there was a mother. And Diana — well, what a mum. But less so Queen Elizabeth II. If you watch The Crown, you're probably wondering where her kids even are most of the time.
But now Katiusha Stepanyan, a 27-year-old Macquarie University commerce graduate, could face up to a decade in jail after police allegedly seized more than $220,000 in cash from the bedroom of her North Ryde home. Nearly $10,000 more was allegedly found in the family's upstairs lounge room. Ms Stepanyan has been charged with two counts of recklessly dealing with the proceeds of crime, carrying a 10-year maximum sentence. Police have told court the money is possibly linked to drug offences.
Robert John Hall had got away with rape for 23 years and was only caught after a tiny slip. In sentencing him to a non-parole period of a year in September a District Court judge declared him already rehabilitated because he lived an upstanding life on the run. Now the Court of Criminal Appeal has ruled that the original sentence was manifestly inadequate and increased it to four years. In March 1990, Hall, then 32, hired a motel room at Kiama and called an escort agency.

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".
