Most Australians we know dream of a sea change … somewhere warmer, slower, friendlier, safer. There seems to be a genuine desire among city dwellers to escape the vibrations and be a little (or a lot) more wholesome. Perhaps it’s because modern day lives are so different from what we remember as kids. Perhaps it’s because we dread the idea of our kids being raised in this current environment. For us, it was all of this.
I’m about to take the plunge into reloading. I’m having a lot of fun with my two young boys shooting with me now, but I’m getting wiped out from ammunition costs. Any savings at all would help. Wait to my wife sees that I’ve taken up another outdoors related hobby, oh boy. As per your archives, I’m going to buy the simple, single stage MEC. I’m going to start with reloading for my boy’s 20ga 1100 — light skeet loads for the boy to shoot plenty of.
Chinese animal activists have rescued more than 1000 dogs and cats from a truck headed to slaughterhouses in southern Guangdong province. About 100 activists took part in the rescue in Guangzhou, confronting the driver and stopping the truck, Humane Society International reports. The truck reportedly originated in southern Gansu province, an area that has long been associated with dog theft, and had apparently travelled 1950 kilometres before reaching Guangzhou.
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".
