It’s all getting a bit much out there, don’t you find? If it’s not Balfour, it’s sexual harassment. If it’s not one minister resigning from the government because of allegations of sexual harassment, it’s another resigning because of allegations of liking Israel more than is strictly necessary.
Harry Vallance, six, and Cecily Coffey-Craig, ten, are learning about each other’s faith MARK GIBSONHave you heard the one about the Jewish school and the Catholic school that decided to share a building? It sounds like the beginning of an old, outdated and not very politically correct joke, but it is happening in Glasgow and the results so far are impressive.
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis has announced an educational initiative for women that he hopes will set a new tone within the British Jewish community, writes Jenni Frazer. The Neshama Festival, described as “groundbreaking” by the organisers, will take place in January and will be a unique women’s learning event, aimed at attracting women from all levels of religious observance.
Suppose it’s not very PC to look at pile of lettuce leaves in fancy San Francisco restaurant and say “you’re having a laugh, mate”. For this is not lettuce but “lettuces” and they are $9. Tesco wants £1.50 for a bag of same. Purity of food, apparently.
I saw a letter in the @Guardian complaining that Israel had not taken in Syrian refugees. That’s because they don’t want to stay in Israel, they want to go back home - and they all do. Not one has asked for asylum.
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".
