The revolution will not be televised. It'll be sent to your inbox by us. In what feels like a scene from a Stephen King story, tragedy has struck a rare book dealer in Bangor, Maine. Countless priceless first editions and some original manuscripts have been destroyed in a flood. On Wednesday, The Bangor Daily reported that the Maine bookstore, Gerald Winters & Son suffered a tragic loss.
When Sam Tarly and Bran Stark revealed Jon Snow’s true heritage, Game of Thrones fans weren’t that surprised. After all, they’d worked out that big secret ages ago. What was a surprise, though, was Jon’s real name, Aegon Targaryen. Fans suspected that he’d really be named Jaehaerys or Aemon, and besides, daddy Rhaegar already had a son named Aegon. The name seemed like it came out of nowhere, but a passage from the books might have cryptically foreshadowed Jon’s real identity.
Everyone Who Will Die on Game of Thrones, Predicted by AI When in doubt, assume everybody dies. “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die,” Cersei Lannister warned way back in the show’s first season. And that has proven terrifyingly true, so much so it’s a small miracle there’s anyone left after seven seasons who could still win the iron throne.
The future belongs to all the peoples of the world.

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".
