Jay Weatherill says it makes sense for South Australia to remain part of a “broken” national electricity network so the state can in the future be an exporter of renewable energy. The Premier, who is seeking a historic fifth term for Labor on March 17, yesterday also said a Liberal policy of greater interconnection with NSW was important over the medium to long term, but “in the short term we need to make sure that we actually have charge of our own energy future here”.
THE Greens have defended their support for onshore processing of asylum-seekers after former Labor leader Mark Latham said it was a "moral outrage" responsible for the Indonesian boat tragedy. After yesterday's news of the sinking of an asylum-seeker vessel off Java and the apparent loss of about 200 lives, Mr Latham said that onshore processing was a magnet for people-smugglers and he demanded that the Greens be "silenced".
No peace for the wicked: Simon Birmingham hasn’t even unpacked his biros and photos yet and those pesky leftie students are already planning a protest. Students from Adelaide and Flinders will be waving banners and chanting slogans to encourage the new education minister to drop fee deregulation as a Coalition policy. But where are their colleagues from UniSA? Why are they so lacking in youthful rage against the machine?
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".
