An ambulance was on standby for the arriving Ovation of the Seas cruise ship as it pulled in at Sydney Harbour as a precaution for two passengers who were still fighting their gastro symptoms. Charles and Maria Parisi from Peakhurst said the crew did everything possible to ensure the outbreak didn’t spread. “They restricted everything — there was no self-serve, no samples, the shops were all closed except for one,” Maria, 59, said.
The boy, 17, had allegedly assaulted an employee at Lambton Pool, leading to police being called. Witnesses allegedly had to hold the teen down until they arrived, by which time they found him in a serious condition. The boy was treated at the scene by paramedics, then taken to John Hunter Hospital where he later died. A spokeswoman for John Hunter Hospital said she was unable to give any information regarding the incident due to the boy being underage.
Terrified locals leapt for their lives, a heritage building was destroyed, others seriously damaged as fires burned along the main street and at least half-a-dozen cars written off when a semi-trailer packed with fertiliser hurtled into Singleton at 100km/h just before 9am yesterday morning and exploded into flames. Police had been watching the truck for at least an hour. A last-ditch attempt to halt or slow it via road spikes just 3km outside Singleton was a final, failed roll of the dice.
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".
