From Kargil to Kanyakumari. From Kutch to Kibithu in Arunachal Pradesh. No kitchen in India can be imagined without spices and condiments. And holding them together are masala dabbas, of which bronze, wooden and earthen variations have been unearthed from archaeological sites dating back to 1556AD and before. Today, they are seen in stainless steel, plastic and even ceramic avatars.
'The wink song' as most non-Malayalis are calling it, stirred up a huge controversy with calls for its ban, police complaints and even the apex court being seized of the matter after overnight internet sensation Priya Prakash Varrier, who stars in the song, sought quashing of FIRs lodged against her and the filmmakers by offended fringe groups.
A new study released on the occasion of International Sex Workers Rights Day, has found that “rescue and restore missions have not only proven to be indiscriminate, violent, and destructive of invaded communities but have also been ineffective in addressing the problem of minors in sex work and adult persons forced into sex work.” Pointing out how discussions on anti-trafficking measures have often been overshadowed by debates on prostitution per se as violence and slavery of women; and...
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".
