Nisar Ahmed, the son of a rickshaw puller and a housemaid, from Delhi’s Bada Bagh slum, will be training in the famed Racers Track Club in Jamaica – the same track on which the iconic Usain Bolt has trained. Nisar, along with 14 other athletes, have been chosen under an initiative by Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) and sports management company, Anglian Medal Hunt for a four-week training programme which will be undertaken at the Racers Club Track in Kingston.
‘Supernatural-thriller’ Tera Intezaar has been panned by critics and audience alike for its non-existent storyline and poor performances. Marked one of the disasters of 2017, the Arbaaz Khan – Sunny Leone thriller barely managed to scrape through to the Rs 2 core mark at the end of the first week, with hardly any takers for the film. When it comes to genres like thriller or horror, Bollywood is known to bring out films that border on sleazy, stupid or hilarious, rather than being genuinely scary.
Doing a U-turn on its previous order requiring individuals to stand up while the national anthem is being played in cinema halls, the Supreme Court recently ordered that it is not mandatory to do so. The correct protocol to be maintained and whether the national anthem needs to be played at cinema theatres has been the subject of much furore and controversy.
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".
