Break out your Jordache jeans, tease your bangs and get ready for an all-night Q*bert marathon on your Atari. The '80s geek fuel of choice, Jolt Cola, returns to store shelves this month, and it will live up to its original slogan: "All the sugar and twice the caffeine." Jolt, which originally launched in 1985, calls itself "America's first carbonated energy drink." The high-octane soda went defunct as a national brand around 2009, which the company chalks up to "some bad business decisions."
NASA astronaut Randy Bresnick has two kids. They had a very pressing question for their dad, who's currently floating on board the International Space Station. Do you have pets in space? Bresnik answered that query with a tweet on Monday. He made his own pets using colorful balloons. Bresnik writes, "What do you do when your 7- and 11-year-old children ask you if you have pets in space? …. You make them of course!"
Of all the potential pitfalls of travel, lost luggage is still one of the biggest fears.

If that risk is still too high for you, then it’s time to check into smart luggage tags that can help reunite you with your wayward suitcase. Check out these options.
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".
