Often the solutions to intricate problems are fairly simple. October 15 is a day dedicated to such a straightforward solution to a mighty problem. Tanmoy Bhaduri narrates the story of how children in remote villages of Bihar and Jharkhand are moving strongly towards a healthier future, with just a piece of soap in hand…An effort to advocate for the importance of cleanliness and the ramifications a hygienic life can have has resulted in demarcating October 15 as the Global Handwashing Day.
The brazen killing of Bengaluru-based senior journalist Gauri Lankesh by unidentified gunmen reinforces that India continues to be deadly for journalists. Several international bodies have noted how attacks on journalists in the country tend to be carried out with impunity. At least 27 journalists have been murdered in direct retaliation for their work in India since 1992, according to CPJ research.
The usually tranquil hills of Darjeeling are burning. There have been many reports of violence for several weeks, as the protest for a separate state of Gorkhaland escalates day by day. I spent one week in Darjeeling to document the movement, which was revived when the state government notified that it would be mandatory to reach the Bengali language in schools up till standard 10.
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".
