The internet, social media in particular, is going haywire over paying almost similar amount on their food bills despite the GST council's recent relaxation of rates from 18 per cent (for air-conditioned restaurants) and 12 per cent (for non-air-conditioned restaurants) to a flat rate of 5 per cent for all types of restaurants in the country. Several people posted images of their bills at popular restaurant chains showing that their food bills have hardly gone down despite cuts in tax rates.
The government has recently announced plan to kickstart the second phase of BharatNet, a project started by the UPA government in 2011 under a different name National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN). Later when the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government came into power, it was renamed BharatNet. Under the second phase, the government aims to double the existing optic fibre network (OFN) in the country from about one million to two million kilometers.
The government's plan to build 100 airports over the next 15 years might just fall flat. According to minister of state for civil aviation Jayant Sinha, the estimated investment on these airports would be a staggering Rs 4 lakh crore. Out of these 100 airports, 70 will be constructed at locations that don't have such a facility while the remaining 30 airports will be expansion of existing airports or second airports.
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".
