‘Siddaramaiah app’, an application launched on October 31 as an exclusive citizen’s connect initiative to provide a hotline to the Chief Minister, has seen suggestions and “concerns” pouring in in thousands. According to an analysis of the data by officials at the CMO (Chief Minister’s Office), by January 1, there were over 31,350 downloads of the app. The total number of “concerns” shared through the app was 1,780, while the number of “suggestions” given to the CM was over 2,300.
The Bengaluru city police have emerged the best-performing unit in terms of verification for passport services across Karnataka in the calendar year 2017. Not only did they take the least average number of days to complete verification in the State, they also showed a big improvement from the previous year’s performance. According to data of the Bengaluru Regional Passport Office (RPO), the December average for number of days taken to complete verification by the police was 12.
The Bengaluru city police have walked away with the top slot as far as performance on verification for passports is concerned, but the Bagalkot police are also in the reckoning. Though they had the same average number of days as the Bengaluru police — 12 days — to complete verification within 21 days, and had zero pendency, Bengaluru Regional Passport Office (RPO) officials acknowledged that the numbers the Bengaluru police dealt with were far higher.
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".
