A second batch of same-sex marriage surveys has been discovered dumped in Melbourne, with a pile of rain-damaged envelopes destined for East Brunswick discovered in the CBD. A woman found the pile of letters lying on the footpath between Collins and Little Collins streets. The woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, said there were up to 10 letters in the pile, with East Brunswick addresses clearly visible. It's the second case of undelivered survey forms to affect the left-leaning suburb.
Three men in Australia have released footage of what they claim is a Tasmanian tiger – proof, they say, the animal is not extinct. Greg Booth, his father George "Joe" Booth and Adrian "Richo" Richardson on Wednesday revealed video and stills of what they say is the tiger, or thylacine. But Tasmanian wildlife biologist Nick Mooney said there was only a "one in three" chance the grainy footage showed a thylacine.
One man has died and 10 injured, some seriously, after a van was used to drive into people at Finsbury Park in north London. Eight people were taken to hospital, while two were treated at the scene. One man died at the scene, though it was too early to say if he had died as a result of the attack, police said. The van driver, 48, has been arrested and will be subject to a mental health assessment.
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".
