Bungalow No. 15 on Mahadeo Road, in close proximity to the Parliament House, has recently become a place of much discussion in political circles. On this Lutyens’ Delhi road stands a house allotted to Mahesh Giri, BJP MP from East Delhi. In here, one can get a sense of the contours of the master plan for a Narendra Modi victory in the 2019 elections. A large banner and a projection system invoking all to ‘take a pledge, make a commitment (Aao ek sankalp lein, aao ek aahuti dein)’ is unmissable.
In November, I set a very important personal best. It wasn’t the sub-1:40 half marathon that I finally managed to secure. Rather, it was in the days following that achievement at the Hamilton Road2Hope Race Weekend that I shattered my personal best for most likes on a single tweet. I can’t deny riding a high following that race, especially after I chased the same goal in May at the Ottawa Race Weekend and came up disastrously short in the conditions.
When it comes to studying and reading about running, I have to admit that the conventional technical/training oriented books don’t really do it for me. I’m lucky to work with a great coach who understands me and my goals well enough to help build a training strategy that leads to growth and results. I’m also pretty diligent about dedicating some time to listening to podcasts from leaders in our sport or perusing articles on the fundamentals of training.
If that's what you depend on, maybe there's more your business needs to consider to be viable. Plus, how many times have we parked a kilometre away in a parking lot at Walmart or Home Depot when we really needed something?
So whenever I hear businesses on one of our city's busiest streets feeling hurt by the fact people can't park right up in front their storefront, I don't get it. How many people can even park that close to your store at any given time? Do you live and die by a few cars out front?
It's often hard and inconvenient to park downtown but that was never a deterrent to places I or my friends really wanted to go. We found something that worked. It's not new that getting door to freaking door via car is not the best option.
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".
