MELBOURNE, Australia--BHP Billiton Ltd. (BHP.AU) will hold the base salary and targeted bonus packages of its chief executive and top management unchanged this fiscal year, despite a sharp turnaround in the resources giant's fortunes. The annual base salary for CEO Andrew Mackenzie has again been set at US$1.7 million, BHP said in its annual report, released Wednesday.
MELBOURNE, Australia--A US$9 billion tie-up between two of Australia's biggest betting companies has been put on hold after an Australian court called for further regulatory scrutiny of Tabcorp Holdings Ltd.'s (TAH.AU) offer for rival Tatts Group Ltd. (TTS.AU). Without disclosing their reasoning, three federal court judges, in a written decision Wednesday, referred the proposed deal back to the Australian Competition Tribunal for further consideration.
MELBOURNE, Australia--Macquarie Group Ltd. (MQG.AU), Australia's biggest investment bank, flagged a rise in profit for the first half of the fiscal year on the back of stronger performance fees. Macquarie said it continued to expect its net profit for the full-year will be broadly in line with the prior year, but the strength in fees meant its first-half profit was set to be up year-over-year and in line with the final six months of the previous fiscal year.
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".
