A NOVICE driver has taken less than a month to draw the ire of Tasmania Police. The 20-year-old was caught travelling at nearly twice the speed limit with four teenagers in his BMW. Police conducting speed checks in Westbury, in northern Tasmania, clocked the BMW doing 97km/h in a 50km/h zone as it passed over a rail crossing just before 2pm yesterday. In the car were four passengers aged 13 to 15. Police said the driver, of Westbury, had received his provisional licence less than a month ago.
Sydneysider Alexander Vincent, 18, was killed in a freak accident, possibly involving parkour, during an afternoon walk on Thursday. It was less than a year ago that Margaret Lore, 17, fell to her death from the cliffs above the blowhole, raising questions about the area’s safety. But police said Mr Vincent was walking along the shoreline below the blowhole when he appeared to have attempted a 5m jump between rocks.
Police have charged a 35-year-old Rocherlea man in connection to the 41-hour stand-off incident at Cedar Street, Newnham. He was interviewed by Launceston CIB and charged with a number of counts, including breaching a family violence order, unlawful possession, resisting police, and drug and firearms offences. Police will allege that after the arrest, a loaded .22-calibre revolver was found in the home. He will appear in the Launceston Magistrates Court at 11.30am on Thursday.
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".
