THE Jalan Railway Reserve Pusing road sign in Pusing town, Perak, is no ordinary landmark. “Do you know that there was a railway track here before? “It was dismantled and some parts were used to build the Imperial Japanese Army’s Death Railway linking Thailand and Burma during the Second World War,” said Cheah Chong Choong, 73, as he paced up and down beside the road sign to underscore its historical significance.
MELAKA: Chong Jia Quan was attracted to the colourful tiny papers on display in his school hall on a recent Saturday. Scrolling the messages on the board, the nine-year-old stood on his toes and craned his neck to read those on the upper level. The messages were certainly not the usual ones he used to see on wishing trees. Another one asked for stalls to market their local produce, increase the Internet speed to the maximum and physiotherapy parks for stroke and heart patients to exercise.
Melaka: A single person needs RM2,700 a month to survive in the city while a couple needs RM4,700, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said, citing survey findings. “Those with children have to factor in another RM50 to RM600 per child per month,” he said at a 2050 National Transformation (TN50) dialogue with Chinese new village residents from all over the country in Machap here yesterday.
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".
