Large parts of Johannesburg’s city centre can still feel gritty — urban decay led to many companies abandoning downtown in favour of the newer financial hub of Sandton in the 1990s. But while crime remains an issue, recent years have seen locals reclaiming their inner city.
The penultimate session of Lahore Literary Festival (LLF) 2018 with renowned religious scholar Reza Aslan opened to a jam-packed audience on Sunday. As the title of the session ‘Beyond Extremism’ suggests, it revolved around antediluvian notions which get the better of sanity in our society today. Reza Aslan shared his knowledge with the public from the primitive pulse of extremist behaviour in various factions of the society to the political upsurge of anger in the general public.
@IndiGo6E For the record I have long had a fear of signs in airport lounges not being updated, thereby forcing me to miss my flight because of a few mediocre chicken junglee sandwiches, so this experience really has not helped my paranoia.
Indigo (@IndiGo6E) cons: they don’t update the sign in the lounge so you have no idea your flight has finished boarding.
Indigo pro: they frantically call your phone to see where you are and make sure you don’t miss your flight.
So... break even I guess? (Whew)
“There has never been a harder time to be a Muslim in India, not since the stormy months that followed India’s Partition.. They’re forced to live with everyday fear of hate violence.. Public lynching carries the unassailable social message that Muslims are second class citizens.” https://twitter.com/dikshamadhok/status/974870699637706752
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".
