A legal researcher says three law firms and a government agency are stopping their staff from sharing stories of workplace harassment. A blog allowing workers in New Zealand’s legal industry to share stories of harassment has been “blacklisted” by at least three law firms and a Government agency, its founder says. Legal researcher Zoe Lawton set up the #MeToo blog on February 28, in the wake of serious allegations of sexual assault at top law firm Russell McVeagh.
We used our social media bubble to crowd source this unscientific survey of people’s thoughts. Some of you took this question more seriously than others:“I forgot to do it....is it too late?” [It's not too late.] “I really wanted a section where it asked about my feelings or something.”“I'm not "religious" but that doesn't stop me being a mystical humanist, pan-psychist, believer in global consciousness (Mind). It's a dumb question with a myopic dualist presumption.
Nesting takahē and their chicks could be at risk if a possible cat sighting on two pest free islands in the Hauraki Gulf is confirmed. On Tuesday, two members of the public reported separate sightings of a black cat on Motutapu and Rangitoto Islands, which are connected by a short bridge. The Department of Conservation (DOC) sent two conservation dogs, their handler and other staff to the islands off Auckland early this morning.
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".
