Just 10 days ago, IndiGo was on top of the world when it announced that it would achieve the 1,000- flights-per-day mark in December. The celebratory mood was evident from the airline’s statement that each of its flight represents an “opportunity for millions to chase their dreams”. Two days later, it was a different story altogether, with India’s largest airline finding itself in the midst of its biggest battle so far to save its reputation as a customer-friendly organisation.
The past couple of days have been a mixed bag for Reliance Communications (RCom). On Monday, the company missed paying interest on bonds — its first such failure. The price of the $300 million of 6.5 per cent securities on which the company owed the interest payment has slid to a record low of 39.4 cents, according to prices compiled by Bloomberg. A day later, however, it was good news once again for the telecom firm.
The mere mention of artificial intelligence (AI) sets off diametrically opposite reactions these days: While many say AI will lead to job augmentation and not job displacement, others vouch for the fact that countries such as India are in for an extended period of social turmoil, with machines taking away jobs. Those in the first camp give the example of e-commerce, which eliminated many retail jobs but created a lot of courier jobs. It has resulted in voluntary skill upgrade, too.
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".
