Jack Rabinovitch once told me that when his mother Fanny died in a Catholic hospital in Montreal, one of the sisters in the hospital told him, “Don’t worry, she’s with Jesus and the angels in heaven.”Jack Rabinovitch lived life fully, and although we all feel a sense that at 87, his life was still cut short, let us celebrate through the tears. I knew him as a philanthropist, a lover of the arts, sports, kibitzing, politics and simply of life itself.
In the spring of 1956 my parents told my brother, sister and me that we would be moving from Ottawa to Washington, D.C., which would become our home for the next six years. We were excited by the news, and spent the summer listening to the radio accounts of the Republican and Democratic conventions (even at 8 I was a political junkie), where the notable event was an unscripted run by John Kennedy for the vice presidential nomination against Estes Kefauver.
Jack told me that when his mother Fanny died in a Catholic hospital in Montreal one of the sisters in the hospital told him, “Don’t worry, she’s with Jesus and the angels in heaven.” Jack replied, “You wanna bet?” Jack Rabinovitch lived life fully, and although we all feel a sense that at 87 his life was still cut short, let us celebrate through the tears. I am honoured that Jack’s family and his partner Judy Clarke have asked me to speak today.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
