Mental illness is a major issue in the Australian entertainment industry. Research conducted in 2016 found suicide attempts for Australian entertainment industry workers was more than double that of the general population while levels of depression symptoms are five times higher. "As a performer, you are constantly having to put yourself forward," actor and dancer Rohan Browne said. "You put your heart out there to be constantly told no, you aren't good enough, you aren't pretty enough.
It has been 13 years since Australia first came to know Anthony Callea. Thirteen years since he and Casey Donovan made their way up the steps of the Opera House to find out who would be crowned the second winner of Australian Idol. In that time he has released seven studio albums, three of which have gone to No.1 and nine singles, two of which have gone to No.1 and now he has just undertaken possibly his biggest challenge to date. An album recorded with a full symphony orchestra.
He's already donned the frock nearly 2,000 times, but nothing could stop Tony Sheldon from coming home to star in Priscilla Queen of the Desert - The Musical. The Australian theatre industry legend began his trip on the iconic bus more than a decade ago when he was involved in the original workshops of the stage incarnation of the classic Aussie film.
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".
