They're best known for "stopping the boats" - stopping the people smugglers - but Australian Border Force does a whole lot more than that. Right now one of the force's ships, the Cape Nelson, is on an interception mission down the nation's east coast. Since leaving Cairns a week ago the 18 strong crew have intercepted more than 80 boats. The crew check all is in order. They're heading for Newcastle and Sydney. They spend a month at sea at a time, providing round the clock surveillance of our waters.
The world is witnessing a peculiar sporting phenomenon. Unprecedented perhaps. A sportsman, who after reaching the pinnacle of his chosen realm more than a decade ago, is only now exploring the outer boundaries of his abilities. A month short of his 36th birthday, here's a guy who's become better at what he does. When a sportsperson spends six months recovering from injury they hope, but also wonder, whether they can come back at a level approaching their best. Not this bloke.
Bam bam bam... one two three... left left left .. rat-a-tat-tat... a three-peat volley of blows to the head that turned the world title fight on its head. But here's where it gets weird. Manny Pacquiao threw that flurry of punches. Jeff Horn was the one left reeling and dazed. Horn's main financial backer Phil Murphy recognised what happened next. It's a slippery notion, not easy to define, but Murphy says when Horn was most vulnerable something inside him "clicked".
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".
