Forget Pakistan, focus on China. This was a recent statement made by India’s Army Chief Bipin Rawat. Though he was referring to defence concerns and border disputes, the deeper issue is more than security issues. In the last few years, China has moved ahead in sectors where India had developed strengths. From automobiles to pharmaceuticals to information technology, China has outclassed India in many ways. The real threat from China that we don’t see is in its focus on high technology sectors.
This is perhaps the most exciting industry to watch out for. The impact of GST will be felt in 2018 with all its pains and promises. However, the industry will see consolidation, expansion and higher foreign investment. Large scale warehouses will be set up across the country. Increase in e-commerce will enhance supply chains from factories to consumer homes. An ICRA report says that the industry will continue to grow at a healthy 10 per cent over the next few years.
Indians love gold. And almost everything with glitter and gleam. The year 2017 will be remembered for Indians transferring their affectionate gaze to the virtual glitter of cryptocurrency bitcoin. For many Indians, a bitcoin is now the shiny, gleaming symbol of investment that promises instant treasures. A young couple in Bengaluru asked their friends to present them a bitcoin for their wedding. Indian movie icon Amitabh Bachchan’s investment in a bitcoin management company came good.
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".
