"This too shall pass". The story goes that once a sultan asked a sage to inscribe a sentence that would be true forever and ever, in good times and bad. The sage inscribed on a ring the words "and this, too shall pass away". Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has turned out to be the 21st Century ring-bearer of that immortal sentiment. He has told us that homosexuality too can pass, it is a tendency that could well change. The gay could become straight. The heterosexual can become homosexual. Fat can become thin.
Sandip Roy's Dispatch - New America is Now While America is mixing, we are seeing the rise of pure white nationalism. But when the search for that identity burns like a tiki torch on main street what does it portend for America?
We are a nation of 1.324 billion and rising. And we remain incorrigibly squeamish about sex. Or rather sex that happens outside the confines of the ordained marital bed and preferably in missionary position. So it is with the latest sex CD scandal. Even that phrase 'sex CD' sounds so antiquated in a time of Ragini MMS. Hardik Patel, the enfant terrible of Gujarat politics is the latest to be embroiled in a 'sex scandal'. A video allegedly featuring him with a woman has gone viral on social media.
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".
