Emma Harrison admits that her friends weren’t so down with her marrying her husband before the couple had tried living together first. “A lot of them thought it was really weird,” she told Hack. “Even my mother before I got married was like, ‘oh are you going to move out soon? Are you going to move in with him?’They were kind of weird about it, but I thought it was totally normal and fine, so I didn’t let their perceptions impede on my choice,” Emma said.
Western Australia and the ACT will re-examine their existing laws on so-called “gay conversion therapy” to see if they need strengthening. But opponents of the practice say governments should focus their attention on an un-regulated counselling sector first, as the so-called therapy is largely “underground”.
It’s estimated over 400,000 Rohingyas have fled Myanmar since violence intensified on August 25. Think about that for a sec - that’s the population of Canberra, and more than the populations of Wollongong or Hobart, displaced in just a few weeks. The Rohingyas are a Muslim minority group in Myanmar, a country in Southeast Asia that’s predominantly Buddhist. Rohingyas have been targeted in the country’s Rakhine state for decades.
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".
