Every sommelier I know is in the habit of “marrying” wine; that is, blending two of the same bottle to conserve space. And we didn’t even need a postal vote. No one will admit to it but everyone does it. But the appropriate thing to do is to keep it out of sight and only with bottles cracked on the same day. So, what other deadly sins can sommeliers commit? In the hope of forming my own church of wine, I have outlined them here. Lust: Look at those curves, that shapely neck, that well-formed bunt.
Delivering the Annual Hawke Lecture in Adelaide yesterday, the former prime minister praised Bob Hawke’s legacy and said Australia needed to draw on his approach of “consensus leadership” to address anxiety, depression and suicide. “It is commonplace now to analyse contemporary politics as being shaped by high degrees of community anxiety,” Ms Gillard said. “Certainly, events like Brexit and the election of Trump show there is a backlash, those hit and hurt by change want to lash out.
Julie Bishop insists US President Donald Trump and his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's wildly different attitudes towards diplomacy and North Korea are both right. The foreign minister is in South Korea along with Defence Minister Marise Payne for official talks with their counterparts.
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".
