A SHAW THING: While countless theater fans have enjoyed the musical “My Fair Lady” over the decades, some may be unaware that it’s based on a play by George Bernard Shaw. Starting next Wednesday, J-Town Playhouse will present that play, “Pygmalion,” at the AACI’s Max and Gianna Glassman Family Center in Jerusalem. “The director, Yardena Buxner, stuck closely to Shaw’s version, but she made Eliza a very strong character,” producer Jennifer Fleischer tells Haaretz.
PIANO WOMAN: For 10 years, international pianist and composer Orit Wolf has given concert lectures in Israel. This year, with the support of Dame Shirley Porter, Wolf will offer her first such series in English. “International guest artists will be performing live and conversing on stage,” she told Haaretz. “There is always a mix of classical music with other disciplines.” Her vision is to “bring everyone into the realm of music so they can all feel a part of it,” Wolf noted.
REMEMBERING MICHAEL: Over 200 people gathered at Mount Herzl to commemorate 11 years since Michael Levin fell in the Second Lebanon War. “When I think of him, I see him coming out of the base very tired but happy because the army was just everything for him and he felt very proud,” recalled Sara Kalker of Tel Aviv’s Lone Soldier Center in Memory of Michael Levin and a close friend.
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".
