The much hyped, much anticipated rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Brisbane schoolteacher Jeff Horn is off. The Queensland government has revealed Pacquiao is unavailable - at least not for the November 12 date both camps had hoped for. Horn - the outsider - defeated Pacquiao in front of a hometown crowd in July. It also drew a global audience of 500 million.
A former Supreme Court judge has faced a committee in an attempt to clear his name and overturn a decision to sack him made nearly 30 years ago. Angelo Vasta was found guilty of misconduct to do with tax arrangements and effectively sacked by the Queensland parliament in 1989. His appearance before the committee today has exposed the inner workings of the Joh Bjelke-Petersen era and of the Fitzgerald Inquiry which effectively brought it to an end.
Queensland's very ordinary-sounding Civil and Administrative Appeals Tribunal is currently considering an anything but ordinary case. At stake is the reputation of Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk's government and the question of what it rates higher: principles or politics. Nearly two years ago, a Gold Coast small business owner attempted to find out how much the government had spent on incentives to lure production of Disney's latest Pirates of the Caribbean blockbuster to the Gold Coast.
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".
