Review after review on Havaianas Australia’s social pages share the same lament: “My brand new Havaianas have snapped already.”An Australian icon, a person’s Havaianas used to last until they lost one, or until someone flogged them at the beach, or even until one of their mates wore them home by “accident” ... not by snapping while they’re still fresh. So what’s going on? Has Havaianas changed their famous “secret recipe”?
Data from Education Queensland has revealed that the number of school suspensions applied to children five-years-old and under has more than doubled in just three years. Is this a sign that maybe they’re just too young to be at school in the first place? As difficult as it is to imagine a tiny preppie being suspended during their first year at school, it’s something that does happen. In fact, twice as regularly as it did three years ago according to data from Education Queensland.
Trigger warning: This post may be upsetting for some readersOn Friday, March 3 this year, Fiona Dodd, 43, sat in a courtroom and had “the moment” that she’d waited over 20 years to see. The man who had brutally assaulted her just meters from the driveway of her family home when she was 20 years old, was placed in cuffs and led away from his family to serve a long overdue sentence, denied even a final moment to say his goodbyes.
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".
