On Sunday morning, the fifth fire in nearly a week was reported from Mumbai’s Lower Parel area. The fire was put out quickly, but it highlights several factors that raise questions regarding the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s commitment to the city when it comes to fire safety norms. On the midnight of December 28, 2017, fourteen people were killed and 16 others injured after a huge fire broke out in a restaurant at Kamala Mills.
When I was given a chance to review the OnePlus 5T, the latest flagship by the Chinese mobile phone manufacturer, I had some mixed emotions. I had previously used a OnePlus 2, and while that phone was decent, it had one of the worst battery lives I had seen in any smartphone. I would have to charge it at least twice every day, and keep it constantly plugged to my work PC’s USB device in case the battery drained out. Also, I’m one of those who uses a smartphone for everything.
While reports on the visibility in the national capital hit headlines again, Mumbai wasn’t far behind with the air quality index touching 238, which falls in the very unhealthy category. The view from Lower Parel was also foggy at around 8 am on Monday morning. The sun was covered by a thick layer of smog, and this reporter’s eyes began watering after taking pictures of the area outside office. Read about Delhi's pollution levels on January 1, 2018 here.
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".
