Brisbane hosting major sporting events, such as the Battle of Brisbane and State of Origin, has been linked to the highest spike of visitation rates in a decade. Last month, Fairfax Media revealed an additional half-million passengers passed through Brisbane Airport in 2017-18 compared to the previous year, thanks mostly to international growth. Brisbane Airport Corporation's latest passenger data showed a 7 per cent increase in airport arrivals on the past financial year.
Plans are afoot to demolish the 25-storey Suncorp Plaza tower in Brisbane's CBD and replace it with a 30-storey glass tower. Turbot Nominees submitted a development application, care of Urbis, to Brisbane City Council on Thursday proposing a 30-storey office tower that would include, retail, a gym, conference and childcare facilities at 343 Albert Street. The current tower has one of Brisbane City's most recognisable landmarks at its summit, a 10-metre digital clock.
More than 1000 submissions opposing a development will not stop an industrial site full of businesses in Brisbane's north being bulldozed to make way for hundreds of townhouses and units. Brisbane City Council approved the conversion of the 4.6-hectare Alderley industrial site at Mina Parade to be zoned residential on Tuesday, the same day city planning chairman Julian Simmonds told his committee how protective the council was of industrial land.
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".
