Written by Girish Kuber | Updated: January 4, 2018 7:52 am The year gone by had witnessed huge congregations of Marathas all over Maharashtra, and it could be the turn of Dalits to set the political agenda this year. (Express photo) 2018 has begun on an ominous note for Maharashtra. The violent clashes that broke out in villages around Bhima Koregaon near Pune, where Dalits had assembled in large numbers to commemorate the second centenary of the battle between the forces of Peshwa Bajirao II...
For nearly three months, Maharashtra has been witnessing a thus far unseen occurrence: Hundreds of thousands of people gather, a march begins, there’s no sloganeering, the crowd walks in complete silence and the gathering ends with handing over of a memorandum to a local government official before it disperses. So far, 40 such silent rallies have taken place across the state. Organisers call it the Maratha Kranti Morcha (Maratha Revolution Rally).
Reform, reform and more reform. That was the message of the first ever CERAWeek, India Energy Forum held in New Delhi last week. Curated by the renowned energy scholar and Pulitzer winning writer, Daniel Yergin, CERAWeek is the most sought after event in the energy circuit. This year it moved out of the US for the first time, thanks to Union minister of petroleum and natural gas Dharmendra Pradhan’s efforts to showcase India’s changing energy scenario to the world.
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".
