Two Austrians living and working in Britain as part of a Holocaust memorial scheme have said they want to help change their country’s image among the Jewish community. Since 1992 the Austrian Holocaust Memorial Service (AHMS) has sent hundreds of young people to work in Jewish institutions around the world, as an alternative to the country’s compulsory military service.
The proverb that there are no innocent bystanders in times of conflict has seldom been truer than it was this week, as a war of words broke out over hummus. With the Sabra brand of the chickpea dip pulled from the shelves of the University of Manchester’s stores, the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign (PSC) claimed it as a victory for the campus boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement over “Israeli human rights violators”.
Edgware is easy enough to find — it’s the Northern line terminus — but harder to summarise, beyond being one of the country’s most ubiquitously Jewish areas. Close to the station and High Street is Edgwarebury Lane, where shopping options include a large Grodzinski bakery, the Divrei Kodesh bookstore and kosher butcher Louis Mann and Sons. Add the shtiebels to the shuls covering the religious spectrum and you have more than 20 congregations.
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".
