ALBURY and Wodonga councils are poised to enter into a landmark partnership next week. In what is believed to be an Australian-first, the cross-border councils will vote on a partnership agreement to form a stronger, united voice when it comes to advocating for federal and state funds as well as planning and building major infrastructure. The councils, who have taken out public notices in Friday’s Border Mail, will hold back-to-back special meetings at The Cube in Wodonga on October 13.
Editorial: $100 million investment in track welcomed. Now we need new trains. FINALLY, Border and North East rail passengers have 100 million reasons to smile. After years, even decades, of frustration at the state of the line between the Border and Melbourne, the federal government has committed to spending $100 million to fix rough sections of the track and remove speed restrictions.
We've all heard the saying “you have to crawl before you can walk”. WE’VE all heard the saying “you have to crawl before you can walk”. Well, when it comes to dancing, it turns out if you can’t walk, you’ll quickly sprawl. You see, as a 200cm boy from the bush who could never get out of first gear on a football field, dancing isn’t something that comes naturally.
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".
