These Miniature Wedding Cakes Are the Ultimate Wedding Keepsake
With the holiday rush over and all the champagne popped (or the bonus sleep gotten as the ball dropped at midnight, let's be honest) with the new year, it's time to get started on those New Year's reading resolutions. And let's be honest, all the best resolutions have to do with reading more books. If you've promised yourself you're going to read more this year, young adult authors have given you loads of opportunities to start adding to and checking off your TBR list.
You know those couple days after Christmas, when you likely have off work and school, and the holiday shopping, family time, and neverending stream of office and friend parties are done? Those couple days where you can take a breath? Those have always been my absolute favorite days for reading. If you celebrate Christmas, the tree is probably still up and smelling great the lights are lit, but you literally have nowhere you have to be.
Young adult lit star Marie Lu has given us so many memorable heroes and villains, from Legend's heroes June and Day to The Young Elites' anti-hero (or maybe even straight-up villain) Adelina Amouteru to this year's new complicated hacker hero Emika Chen from Warcross. And now Lu is tackling one of the most iconic heroes of all time: Batman. In Batman: Nightwalker, Lu explores the superhero's origin story in a new way, by telling the story of Bruce Wayne as a teenager.
@callyrgf Listening to your latest pod (💜) and CVS will require all photoshopped beauty ads from ANY brand in its store carry a “warning” label saying it IS altered by 2020. So not just non-altered. Hopefully that’s a start you’re talking about.
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".
