I would have sworn that the pumpkin-spice megatrend was started by Starbucks. But I would have been wrong. In an ad for condensed milk that appeared in the November 17, 1947 issue of the Forverts, alongside a recipe for coconut pumpkin chiffon pie, is ad copy says, “If you like pumpkin spice flavored pie…”The main copy, translated by Forward archivist Chana Pollack, says the following:The full ad is below. Liza Schoenfein is the food editor of the Forward.
A recent email from food-rescue organization City Harvest about kosher-turkey distribution at Thanksgiving revealed a staggering figure: There are more than half a million food-insecure poor or near-poor Jews in New York City. Hard as it is to fathom, the number is correct: One in four Jewish households in the five boroughs is in poverty — defined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as having household income of below $24,600 for a family of four.
As Thanksgiving nears, most of us are laser-focused on preparing (or procuring) the big turkey dinner. But once the feast is finished, we can look forward to catching up with family and friends in a more leisurely fashion. Since brunch is the most leisurely meal of all, we’ve compiled our favorite breakfast recipes for you to whip up.
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".
