Imagine the nightmare of parents waking up to see their daughter lying murdered in her own bed. Nothing can possibly be worse than that. Except perhaps to be accused of murdering her. And then being convicted of that crime for no other reason than that the police could not find anyone else. What Rajesh and Nupur Talwar – and indeed their entire family and close friends’ circle – went through in the dreadful decade since Aarushi and Hemraj’s murder cannot be fathomed.
It is not often that I get to indulge both my passions – textiles and food. The past few weeks have been a bonanza in that respect and set me thinking a little deeply about both instead of merely revelling in the immediate joy of seeing and feeling an exquisite textile or tasting a delectable morsel. My main train of thought was the symbiotic relationship between authenticity and innovation. The unanimous demand of guests at our new home has been for “authentic” Bengali food.
It is not uncommon for China to claim that just about everything was discovered, created, evolved or invented there, from astronomy to gastronomy, technology to culture. India has been remarkably reticent about asserting its own considerable claims, much less challenging Chinaâ€™s claims of preeminence on the continent. Maybe the resolution of the Doklam standoff will mark a change in this curious Indian pusillanimity.
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".
