Major General Marcus Thompson, the deputy chief of information warfare, has confirmed to a Defence Senate Estimates Committee that a decision had been made to suspend the DJI camera drones after “commentary” from the United States military. The Australian revealed the ban in September which had been triggered by US Army memo that raised concerns about systems that use DJI components or software. General Thompson said the time between receiving the alert and the ban had been “virtually immediate”.
A firefighter in the city of Janauba said on Thursday that the guard was among those injured and was in serious condition. The firefighter, who declined to give his name, said the majority of the victims ranged in age from one to four years old. News portal G1, citing police sources, said a teacher had also died in the fire. The daycare centre in Janauba, in the state of Minas Gerais, cares for about 70 children, according to local media.
Five of the victims were in their cars when strong winds caused trees to crash into their vehicles in the eastern states of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern as well as the cities of Berlin and Hamburg. One person also died near the Polish border, police said. Several more people in Berlin were injured by falling trees, authorities said. The storm ripped trees from the ground in Berlin, which have fallen across streets, paths and train tracks, blocking local transportation.
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".
