In the world of obsessive, pedantic, dorkery – a realm in which an argument over whether the word “utilise” has a legitimate place in language is an acceptable way to pass the time whilst waiting for the bus – there is perhaps no greater trump card than the pulling out of a completed copy of The Times cryptic crossword, neatly folded four ways, its little boxes all filled in using (in an ideal world) green ink. The meaning of this gesture is clear to those who care.
It’s a message that Rai has hammered home in speeches he’s made from Bhubaneswar to Boston over the last few months: if India is to fix its reputation for untrammelled corruption, it must do so today. According to Rai, there is no time to waste. “2012 will go down in the history of Indian democracy as a defining year,” Rai told his audience. “A year in which the citizen came centre stage and debunked the age-old myth of the silent majority...

Imagine you are a millennial-minded chocolate maker. Your product looks cool and it tastes good, but it is very likely that somewhere down your supply chain your business relies on child labour. What are you going to do about it? https://ig.ft.com/special-reports/child-labour/

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".
