If the laziest person were to choose one destination in the country, South Goa would be it. With absolutely nothing to do here, you have all of 24 hours to yourself by some of the best golden beaches in the country. With the sun as bright, the sea as clear and the crowd fewer than other Goan beaches, why would anyone go anywhere else? However, if you did want to do a few things while you’re there, here are some ideas which require minimum effort. Stay relaxed!
Have you ever explored a place looking at it through someone else’s eyes? It could be any place—perhaps the city you live in or a destination you’re visiting for the first time. The perspective changes. I call this the ‘magical perspective’. It doesn’t permanently change the way I look at things, it helps me identify with the place while living it through someone else’s words, yet I experience it through my own feelings.
The 2.5-hour drive from Katni Railway Station to Kings Lodge in Bandhavgarh National Park was full of anticipation and excitement. It was the first time I was in Madhya Pradesh and the eagerness comes as a natural precursor to a new journey. I reached in the darkness of the night and my first impression of Kings Lodge was their warm hospitality. Sure, the earthy decor is a successful distraction but the attentive staffers supersede it all.
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".
