The IAB Singapore’s Rolling Heavies series is back, with more of Asia Pacific’s most influential digital leaders answering questions while riding on a bike. As with the first series, The Drum is proud to exclusively host the series in which IAB Singapore CEO and ambassador to Southeast Asia Miranda Dimopoulos asks the hard questions (and the fun ones) about career and experiences. The series has been co-produced for the IAB Singapore by 90 Seconds, a cloud video creation platform.
Another year, another 11.11 sales extravaganza has convinced those of us in Asia to hit the keyboard and mouse (or our phones) to get the best deals of the year. Lazada, now 83% owned by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, is one of the forerunners of this trend and actually runs a sale for a month. However, on just its Single’s Day launch, the company generated $123m USD of gross merchandise value (GMV) which it says is a 171% growth over the past year. Over 6.5m items were bought, a 191% growth.
Singapore has been named as the host of the hub for the Oath (AOL and Yahoo) creative shop RYOT Studio. Oath has announced the launch of RYOT globally, which is a new expanded version of a business it bought last year. RYOT was originally brought on by the digital behemoths as a virtual reality specialist but it has launched a specialist unit within the business RYOT Studio which acts as a global creative content studio.
The Ultimate Asset Talent Summit... a fitting end to one of the busiest periods in my life. What a bunch of absolute babes.

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".
