ISLAMABAD: The question of missing legislators haunted both houses of parliament on Friday as the Senate was unable to pass the 24th constitutional amendment, passed by the National Assembly a day earlier. Certain ruling party MNAs also made the startling claim that they had received threatening phone calls from ‘unknown’ numbers, warning them not to attend the sitting of the lower house that voted on the amendment.
ISLAMABAD: Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Thursday called on Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and sought immediate action against the protesters staging a sit-in near Faizabad for over a week. He said the people of the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad had been facing severe problems because of the sit-in, adding that nobody should be allowed to resort to lawlessness and make the general public suffer at the busiest artery of Islamabad.
ISLAMABAD: With Lahore in the lead, eight districts in the country account for a gap of over three million between the numbers of male and female voters — more than one fourth of the difference of slightly over 12m in all 136 districts. An analysis of district-wise data regarding voters, recently uploaded onto the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) official website, reveals that two districts of Punjab — Lahore and Faisalabad — account for a gap of 1.15m voters.
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".
