We’re all huge fans of RJ Palacio’s Wonder and the 2017 Wonder movie that the book inspired. Fans as in, we all sobbed into our popcorn bowls and loved every minute. So I was psyched to discover these free printable Wonder-themed activity sheets (PDF) that bring the themes of the book to life, helping kids cultivate kindness and self-confidence through fun exercises. Because more kindness, please.
If you happen to be anticipating a new baby this year — whether your own or a friend’s — you’re in luck. Because February 16 marks the of Chinese New Year and the official start of the Year of the Dog, which means you can celebrate babies and puppies, two of our favorite things! So I had the best time looking for the perfect doggie-themed baby gifts to help all you welcome a new baby who’s slated to bring loyalty, responsibility, courage, playfulness, and good fortune to your home.
This year we’re making sure that friend love doesn’t get neglected on Valentine’s Day, and so I’ve rounded up 8 awesome crafts that celebrate your kids’ BFFs in the most adorable ways. Because while I can barely tell you the names of my middle school boyfriends (and there weren’t even that many, trust me), some of my friendships from that era are still going strong. And hey, with crafts as sweet as these, maybe your kids will create some keepsakes that last a few decades, too.
@jamesgsmoker Weird! I was positive I read that season 3 was the last season. I'd have to do a full series rewatch to pick my definitive faves, but "My Diagnosis," and "First Penis I Ever Saw," stuck out this season.
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".
