27 Boxes, the shopping centre constructed out of refurbished shipping containers, has begun life afresh. A novelty in Melville, one of Johannesburg’s quirkiest suburb, it first opened its doors a few years back but didn’t meet its potential. Fortuitously, Gustav Holtzhausen, the new CEO of the holding company Citiq, made it his business to get to the bottom of 27 Boxes’ belly-flop.
Melville residents will soon be able to celebrate a new park at 27 Boxes – providing they can keep an open mind. Suzanne Brenner, who was one of the original development’s most outspoken critics, believes the new 27 Boxes is set to be a stylish addition to Melville and to the city of Johannesburg. Rising from the ashes of Faan Smit Park, the regenerated public park heralds 27 Boxes’ reinvention as a family destination for the Melville community.
No self-respecting Twitter follower could have failed to notice the recent upheaval over a Cape Town waiter's order slip, which contained a description of a pair of customers as "2 blacks". Before tweeters could chirp themselves into a frenzy, the Premier of the Western Cape, Helen Zille - an ardent tweeterbox - entered the fray ...
I’ve news for you, accents are judged everywhere (especially the UK) but your argument is a bit tenuous in view of the idiotic radio guys who made the judgement. Why would anyone think they knew what they were talking about @bonglez?
Sipho has always been a favourite in my book and I would like to suggest our new president uses him in some way to inspire students and as a role model. You have always been a star #Hotstix! Great stuff @PhemeloMotene@siphohotstix
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".
