If you’re unsure what the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) means for your business when it is enforced on May 28, then you have a wake-up call in store. A very real danger is that savvy members of the public who may once have had some kind of dealings with you will ‘dob’ you in for breaking the rules. You may want to invite a GDPR consultancy into your business, as we have done.
It was the end of a tough week for high-flying lawyer Nick Abrahams … the global tech lead partner of international law firm Norton Rose Fulbright. He hit Friday night tired and ready for the couch. However, despite his head telling him to get himself off to home comforts, his heart was propelling his legs down the seedier end of Sydney's George Street, towards a comedy club where he intended to entertain the gathered revellers at an open mic stand-up night.
Telecommunications providers could face fines of up to $10 million if they fail to properly manage customers' migration to the NBN next year, under new rules proposed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) on Thursday. ACMA will impose new rules in 2018, which will require telecommunications firms to improve the experience for customers moving to the National Broadband Network, and will begin industry consultation to define the requirements in the new year.
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".
