John roams freely in the townships of Mangochi. His load, seemingly heavy, does not weigh him down as he moves from one place to another. Periodically, he makes some stops to pick up and load more litter into his overloaded bag. Whether alone or in the company of an individual who engages him conversation, John produces a smile on his face, which is partly disfigured by burnt wounds. Seemingly, John does not feel any pain, at least judging from how he carries on with his life.
Engineers in the country have been challenged to find a long-lasting solution to the persistent water and electricity problems, which have increased the cost of living for most Malawians. FDH Holdinds Chief Executive Officer, Thomson Mpinganjira, said in Mangochi when he opened this year’s Malawi Institute of Engineers (MIE) annual conference which is being held jointly with the sixth Engineers without Borders conference.
Farmers in the remote parts of Mangochi and Machinga are yet to access fertiliser under the Farm Inputs Subsidy Programme (Fisp), two weeks after government rolled out the programme. Last year, farmers were spending a lot of money to buy, mostly, fertiliser at selling points, which were only allocated within townships. But despite a slight improvement this year, most remote areas still have no selling points.
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".
