En el aula de una escuela de las afueras de Bombay se hace el silencio, y las alumnas, todas afectadas por alguna discapacidad, levantan la vista hacia sus madres en busca de ayuda. Les han planteado una pregunta difícil: “¿Qué es la menstruación?”. La mitad de las niñas de este grupo de entre 8 y 16 años ya ha empezado a menstruar, pero la respuesta se les escapa. Al cabo de unos segundos, una estudiante de 13 años levanta la mano. “La regla”, contesta.
This one is about a discussion I’d attended on “Globalization of Terrorism.” Since it could not be accommodated in print (you know the age-old battle between the green-eyed Advertising and the tiara-bearing Editorial! ), I’m publishing it here on my blog. If you are a voyeur for politics, terrorism, international legislation, international jihad groups or even human beings, you’ll enjoy it! Splendid discussion put up by the panelists. Here.
It was a scene straight out of a Bollywood blockbuster. There was a crowd of over 400 odd people, looking upwards, waiting impatiently, speculating, conspiring, doing the alternate tearing of flower petals with the she-will-jump and she-will-not, betting on it, and calling for some more alcohol. Then there were the people who were convincing Mausiji to simply accept Basanti’s demands.
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".
