The Standard gives us 7 things to know about BuzzFeed. Summer Anne Burton at BuzzFeed called it, “Adorable.” Grace Dent from the Guardian admitted, “I love @BuzzFeedUK Here's an ES mag piece about who they are and how they make it.” Colleague Paul MacInnes tweeted this quote: “'I see no reason why BuzzFeed can't be the biggest media property in the UK.'”

In the New York Times, Serge Kovaleski explains that Despite their Outlaw Image, Hells Angels Sue Often. Trip Gabriel there said, “Outlaw gang of intellectual property defenders: @sergenyt's delicious Hells Angels saga.” Jana Pruden at the Edmonton Journal wrote, “Hells to pay -- Interesting look at the modern Hells Angels, including their penchant for lawsuits.” Robert Brum with the Journal News added, “Hell's Angels: They ride, they menace, they protect their trademarks.”

Also in the Guardian, read about Afghan interpreters who fell in love with US soldiers and their struggle in visa limbo. Amie Ferris-Rotman called it a “Lovely yarn by @_EmmaGH on unlikely US-Afghan couples in #Afghanistan.” Nathan Hodge from the Wall Street Journal tweeted: “Heartbreaking + richly reported story.” Dylan Welch from Reuters agreed: “Lovely story.”
