RIO TINTO chief executiveTom Albanese says Australia's reputation has been damaged by the lack of consultation around Kevin Rudd's proposed 40 per cent tax on mining profits. "The non-consulted announcement I think has left damage to Australia's investment reputation and that damage has been done," Mr Albanese said at a media conference today. "Now it's in everyone's best interest to mitigate this if we can."
Aged care provider Estia Health has boosted its earnings and hit guidance, in a turnaround from its previous slump. The annual financial numbers released by the company this morning have been cheered by the market, with an early 5 per cent rise in Estia’s shares to $3.16. The Australian-listed company (EHE) reported a 47 per cent increase in net profit after tax of $40.7 million and EBITDA of $86.5m, which fell in its guidance range.
If that were the case, roads wouldn’t get built, goods wouldn’t get delivered, kids would go untaught and patients expire with open chests in abandoned operating theatres. The entire population would be too busy trying to work out what time they should be decanting the claret if dinner guests are due at eight. Most sane people see wine as “just a drink”, a beverage to accompany dinner, a balm to soften the callouses of a hard working day.

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".
