From the time I get into my cab in Zagreb, the driver just can’t stop talking about štrukli. It’s a traditional dish that’s popular in the northern parts of Croatia, I am told. “It’s on the list of the country’s intangible cultural heritage. Don’t forget to try it,” he reminds me, as I slide out of the cab with my monstrous luggage. Most cafés and restaurants in the city serve štrukli, but there’s one place that’s held in high regard by many of the locals.
Hemang Badani’s voice is still a little hoarse from all the celebratory screaming after the finals of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL). The coach for the winning team, Chepauk Super Gillies (CSG), sits back contented with the results and says, “When I was younger, I was temperamental. So I wasn’t sure if I was cut out to be a coach. I always knew I had solutions to problems, but wasn’t sure if I could communicate it to the players.”But it all worked out well.
It’s the 16th edition of the Duchess Utsav and the excitement levels among the organisers are as high as it was in the first year. Started in 2002, this annual exhibition brings together designers and brands showcasing clothes, shoes, accessories, home décor and, of course, food. “It was started with the idea to help women and provide a platform for home entrepreneurs,” says Rathi Nilakantan, one of the organisers.
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".
