At last, good news abounds for Larry David. Not only is he vindicated as a Good Samaritan â€” an overt inversion of Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramerâ€™s condemnation in the Seinfeld finale â€” but it looks like Fatwa! the musical is a go, now that heâ€™s got the muftisâ€™ collective blessing. That is, if he can get Lin-Manuel Miranda to star in it, which may or may not be setting up a bravura guest appearance in this seasonâ€™s conclusive episode.
To Curbâ€™s credit, â€œNamasteâ€? tiptoes somewhat delicacy around the topic of Asperger syndrome. Jeff actually offers the caveat that most folks he knows whoâ€™ve been diagnosed with the neurobiological disorder are utterly pleasant. He and Larry just happen to agree that Bridgetâ€™s (Lauren Graham) autistic teen son Eddie is a prick. This is problematic for Larry, who otherwise likes Bridget very much, but canâ€™t seem to sneak in so much as a kiss with Eddie around barking demands about donuts.
Midway through the trailer for Daddy’s Home 2, a graying but robust Kurt Mayron, played by Mel Gibson, saunters down an airport escalator toward his son, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg). Dusty, newly evolved as a more sensitive father and husband, is worried the old man’s going to give him grief. Later, Dusty winces when Papa Mayron greets the grandkids by teasing a one-liner about “dead hookers.” The joke, were he allowed to complete it, would have probably, hopefully gone over the kids’ heads.
I don't intend to sound naive, but in the cases of accused and/or confessed journalist harassers like Thrush or Halperin or Rose, where are their more upstanding male newsroom colleagues as this persists? Was I missing this in my own newsroooms?
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".
