It was the first organized tour focusing on Malta’s Jewish heritage, and there were six of us: five American Jewish journalists, and one Muslim Turkish-American representative of Turkish Airlines.
I visited Dubai during Ramadan last year. In an amazing turn of events, Dubai Tourism had also just organized the Real Housewives of Beverly Hill’s trip there and our itinerary was almost identical. And yes, I did recreate Erica Jayne’s photo shoot with a falcon-- sans my own glam squad. And yes, Erika Jayne did like my tweet. The Kardashians also recently visited many of the same spots we did, as have countless celebrities over the years since the 1970’s when Dubai was just a small fishing village.
Here in Zug, everyone is Christian. Well, they aren't but according to Europeans, especially the British, "Happy Christmas," is the only appropriate greeting in December. When I responded with "Happy Hanukkah," to a very Swiss friend he literally looked befuddled. "What, are you a Jewish? Well same to you." Nice.
Stop exonerating @azizansari women need assertiveness training and @azizansari azizansari needs to respect women and boundaries and not objectify a date into a hole. No means no means no means no. I don’t care your “progressive” politics. The R and L agree. I say stop enabling!
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".
