New Delhi: The Rajasthan government’s ordinance on absolute restraint against media on identifying and reporting about legislators, judges and public servants is fraught with immense dangers against free press and right of public to know. After all, the primary role of media is to disseminate relevant information which would help the truth come out.
New Delhi: Almost 20 years on, a judge from Jammu and Kashmir will have to prove the basis of his selection in the judicial services. A Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra has directed the Deputy Commissioner of Bandipora district to verify the authenticity of the backward area certificate of the judicial officer, and report back to the court after two months. This certifcate had formed the basis of selection of the judge in question.
New Delhi: The 263-page verdict by the Allahabad High Court in the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case has at many instances censured the CBI for manufacturing evidence to put the Talwar couple in the dock. Dealing with a specific piece of crucial evidence, the division bench went on to the extent of underscoring that the investigating agency “connived” with a forensic lab to secure conviction for Rajesh and Nupur Talwar.
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".
