Since 2012 India's banking sector has been in deep trouble and the depth seems to be increasing with time. The distress seems to be at unprecedented level now, with the unearthing of the Rs 11,300-crore scam at Punjab National Bank (PNB). The scam threatens to destabilise the tottering sector, struggling to maintain adequate capital to lend. Credit growth fell to a 60-year-low of 5% in the year ended 31 March, 2017.
The recent stock market tumble has brought one term onto the forefront in India: 'Brexit': That seems to be the new fall guy. But seriously, what is Brexit? And how does it matter to the Indian economy? Brexit, as most know by know, stands for Britain's possible exit from the European Union (EU). Surely, that will have serious implications for the future of the 28-nation club that has governed the economic interests for the European economies since 1993.
Imagine a society that allows everyone to say anything about anyone. No holds barred views about gods, leaders, priests, imams and communities. Would it lead to a utopia or dystopia? The Orientals love their traditions – dowry, child marriage, and blasphemy are the practices that are cherished by millions in the subcontinent even today. Nobody is supposed to speak against the prevalent culture. Being politically correct is considered a virtue.
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".
