To find marriage partners for their sons and daughters, parents across India are hoping for an I’less PQ T’tot, preferably W’stld at a PSU. They’re speaking the language of “matrimonials,” the abbreviation-stuffed marriage ads that are still a Sunday staple in papers read by hundreds of millions in India, where family elders commonly take the lead in the search for suitable spouses. The...
JAKARTA—For multinational corporations including Nestlé SA, Carrefour SA and Unilever PLC, somebody like Rohani, a 55-year-old maid in Indonesia who makes $55 a month, can be a good customer. While her income puts her on the edge of the poverty line, she says her spending habits weren't affected by the global slowdown in 2008 and 2009, and she currently has no worries—or even knowledge about—Europe's latest economic troubles. She...
JAKARTA—As Indonesia grapples with slowing growth and rising inflation, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono used his annual state of the nation speech Friday to focus on the sprawling country's economic success and potential, promising additional investment in infrastructure and education to ensure the economy doesn't lose momentum.
@sajithpai Interesting. I had similar experiences (years ago it may be better now) when I tried to find an apartment in Mumbai through a property site and also when I tried to sell a sofa on a classified site. Lots of responses, none of which were close to what I was looking for.
@sajithpai Should be free off my tweet sorry not sure why that doesn't work. Yes sharp decline but hasn't disappeared (as they have in almost all papers in the U.S.) is the point. I wanted to explore who is still using these things.
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".
