An exuberant bunch of youngsters greeted team Bangalore Times and our celebrity judge for the day — Kannada actress Karunya Gowda — at the OPPO Bangalore Times Fresh Face audition at the PES Institute of Technology , South Campus. Right from the word go, they enthralled the judges and crowd with high-energy performances — from song (which included a Kannada mash up to Shape Of You) and dance to beat boxing and an incredible display of Rubik's Cube solving in record time.
Hassle-free, smooth-flowing traffic is a dream for every Bengaluru motorist. Wishful thinking, one might say, given that the city's traffic woes have pretty much got everyone's goat. And if the experts are to be believed, it is only going to get worse. Conservative estimates put the vehicle population on Bengaluru's roads at over 70 lakh, (which does not consider the non-Karnataka registered ones) — a nearly 100% rise in a decade — which is expected to cross a crore in the next five years.
Close on the heels of the gruesome murder of a seven-year-old student in Gurugram by a bus conductor, a five-year-old was raped inside a washroom of a private school in east Delhi's Gandhi Nagar by a school peon. The last few years have had several reported cases across the country, in which members of the staff of a school sexually assaulted a student.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
