What's going on in these pictures is incredible. It seems that the waters from last year's floods in Pakistan forced millions of spiders into these trees, creating these impressive images, according to the UK Department For International Development (DFID). Apparently the water took so long to recede that the spiders eventually turned the trees into cocoons.
I did not know Alexia when I worked at HuffPost. I still don't know her. I don't engage with her on Facebook, I don't write witty replies to her tweets. I'm pretty sure I don't follow her on Instagram, and I'm pretty sure beyond this one encounter I never even shared an Aol elevator ride with her.
If a tsunami hits Japan, could Antarctica be affected? For the first time, scientists seem to have linked a catastrophic event over a hemisphere away with the creation of icebergs from the coast of Antarctica. According to NASA, Kelly Brunt, a cryosphere specialist at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and her colleagues, were able to relate the two occurrences directly.
" Caylee's Law" has already gained over 330,000 signatures on Change.org. The petition, which was created by Michelle Crowder of Oklahoma, aims to make not notifying police of a missing child a crime. According to USA Today, it also calls for strict penalties when parents do not quickly report the death of a child.
Years ago, a very well-known and public boss of mine gathered her heads of the newsroom together for a leadership lunch that at the time was becoming a regularity. There were gourmet sandwiches, artisanal drinks, dessert and more. It was held in a conference room that literally doesn't exist unless someone like her asks it to.
In the land before internet, there measuring "good" was largely subjective. Learned men and women would sit around and discuss the Sunday Magazine, front-page news, or graciously debate op-eds. (Today that's just Twitter.) Subscription numbers spoke to perhaps the overall quality of a publication, but not to its lowest lows and highest highs.
Cinco de Mayo is more than just another excuse to party. The holiday, which is celebrated more abroad than actually in Mexico, commemorates the Battle of Puebla which took place on May 5, 1862. The underdog victory for Mexico pushed French forces out of the state of Puebla against seemingly insurmountable odds.
You don't have to be a manipulative psychopath to win an argument, you just need the right tools. So here they are. But before you read, consider this: it might not matter whether or not you want to use these techniques, but rather, what if someone's using them on you?
Posted: Print Article Whether it's 4/20 or not, it's always important to know just how high you are this very moment. We'd explain further, but if you're still reading this, chances are it's not exactly going to sink in (especially if you live in Colorado).
Every year Super Bowl Sunday affords millions of Americans the chance to combine their two most favorite pastimes: football and excessive drinking. But why just blindly consume thousands of calories in alcohol when there's a chance to turn this into a more meaningful experience?
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
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".
