Let us now combine all your favorite things into one big night: Disneyland, plus Star Wars, plus awesome after-hours parties. Disneyland just announced the next event of their brand-new Disneyland After Dark series, and the theme is Star Wars. Buying a ticket to the May 3 evening event grants visitors early access to some of the hotly anticipated Star Wars neighborhood at the park, including special live entertainment, character appearances, immersive environments for photo-ops, and more.
Fairy tale stories of castles and magic in far-off lands are a great part of childhood—unless you’re a kid who doesn’t feel like you fit the mold of the traditional princesses and knights you see in those story books. Maybe you’re a girl who doesn’t see herself as a distressed damsel waiting to be saved by a dashing prince. Or maybe you’re a boy who doesn’t feel like finding a damsel in the first place. What’s on the shelves for you?
California Poppies In Bloom Photo by Sergey Shmidt on UnsplashThere’s still a bit of chill in the air and a few lingering raindrops on the ground, but spring is starting to burst out all around us. Cherry blossoms, tulips, and even a few hearty poppies are showing themselves. Experts say it’s unlikely this year will offer a “superbloom”—weather conditions over the winter were not what they would need to be for that—but recent bands of rain are helping to perk up thirsty plants just in time.
@ThisIsHans@whydogswhy There are always going to be periods where your taste and appreciation for quality work outpaces your ability to make that level of work. And that's so frustrating when it happens! But that's the challenge that precedes the breakthrough!
@ThisIsHans@whydogswhy Hi! Chiming in because I actually want to challenge this idea for a second! Proposal: It's actually good to sometimes not be stoked on your work. In fact, it's inevitable. And that's how we grow as creatives!
@stitchfix When I got my last box, the stylist note said there was not a single dress like this in stock, in spite of my specific request for such. Is there a better way I can communicate what I'm looking for? Thanks!
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".
