It’s Official: Jared Kushner is the least popular member of the First Family — by far. This may or may not have something to do with with his being an Orthodox Jew, as the Forward’s Editor in Chief Jane Eisner argued in her July 25 op ed. But is Jared Kushner’s religion really the guy’s most salient feature, even in the American imagination? I don’t think so. Despite the fact that we all know he’s an Orthodox Jew, that’s just not how he reads to Americans.
A day ahead of the start of Shark Week, a couple of chums in New Jersey made history this weekend by catching the largest shark in the state’s history, a 926-pound shortfin mako shark. Though it won’t count as a state record because it took so many men to bring the shark aboard the boat, it was an endeavor 35-years in the making for Dave Bender, owner of the boat. But hungry ladies and gentleman of the Jewish jury — is this fish kosher? In short, fins and scales.
[Editor’s Note: I received this email this morning and it put a smile on my face — I hope it will put one on yours as well! The email has been edited for length and clarity.] Given your post about using umbrellas on Shabbat, I thought you would be interested in the story below:In an effort to better understand his Jewish constituents, the Mayor of a small town reached out to a popular Rabbi. The Rabbi invited the Mayor to spend Shabbat at his home.
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".
