Over two decades ago the Supreme Court directed the government to make the subject of the environment mandatory in colleges across the country. After much pushing and prodding, the University Grants Commission (UGC) came up with a broad list of subjects that would form this course. It was made compulsory for under-graduate students, but its importance was destroyed by awarding it just four course credits in the total course of the student. The fact is that ours is the age of the environment.
What will Indian cities do about its growing mountains of waste? IMAGE: Delhi garbage dumps like this one are full. Photograph: Adnan Abidi/ReutersRecently, two people died in Delhi because the garbage mountain of the city collapsed on them. The waste dump, called landfill for want of a better word, is more than 50 metres high. It is one of the city’s three landfills, and its capacity has long been exhausted. Everybody knew this was a disaster waiting to happen. It did.
व्यवहार की गुत्थी
सरकार का खुद का आंकड़ा बताता है कि सूचना, शिक्षा और संचार के लिए आवंटित धन में से केवल 0.8 प्रतिशत ही खर्च किया गया है।
वे कौन से कारण हैं जो लोगों को अपने व्यवहार में परिवर्तन लाने को प्रेरित करते हैं? वह शिक्षा है या सामाजिक दबाव? या फिर दंड का डर? क्या ये सब और इनके अतिरिक्त भी कुछ है जो बदलाव का वाहक बनता है?
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
