Exactly a year after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a surprise demonetization of Rs500 and Rs1000 banknotes, the tangible benefits are unclear. The costs are more clear cut, especially in human terms. More than 100 people died while standing in bank queues and more than 50 others committed suicide as the Modi government moved to crack down on the black-market economy and corruption. The economy suffered slower growth. In 2016, Q3 registered year-on-year growth of 7.3%.
For over 17 years, 900 body bags procured by the Indian Army have been lying locked up in a neglected warehouse, while military personnel struggle to pick up their casualties in the field, queries by Asia Times revealed. The surfacing of disturbing images of seven Indian Air Force personnel killed while supplying essential supplies to Indian Army troops at a remote post in the state of Arunachal Pradesh on the China-India border caused wide-spread outrage a few days ago.
India’s sole Marshal of the Indian Air Force, Arjan Singh passed away just two years short of a century in New Delhi on Saturday. Singh, was the first and the only Chief of the Air Staff to be awarded this rank, a rare honor bestowed to only two army chiefs since independence. Born on April 15, 1919 in Lyallpur, Punjab, now in Pakistan, Singh was a legend in the Indian Air Force throughout his career.
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".
