Four Indian Americans will be or, would have closely contested to be, in the US Congress today. Arguments can ensue on whether it was Bhagat Singh Thind or Dalip Singh Saud who laid the foundation for this day in the year 1936 or 1957, depending on how you look at it. Thind, a lecturer, scientist and writer on spirituality, can be called the first Indian American. He applied for US citizenship after the end of World War I, having fought for the country as an American soldier.
Singapore-based social enterprise, The Cha project, in association with Kolkata Literary Meet backed by The Tagore Society and The Arts Bridge put out a treat for the senses for the Indian Diaspora over the weekend. 'India Conversations', held at the magnificent, historic and revamped Capitol Theatre, was unique in every sense - range of conversations, the richness of content and soulful musical performance in context with Rabindra Sangeet.
The most common grouse I hear from B2B brand owners is their inability to attract customer attention because their respective categories don’t lend themselves to cool campaigns. “How do we make submersible pumps, cables, drilling equipment, seismic services look cool is the common refrain. Upon finding partial or no success in their infrequent marketing sojourns, they get reticent and revert to selling is good enough for us’ approach. Here are a few arguments and some...
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".
