Firebox has unequivocally won the prize for ‘Grimmest Stranger Things Merch’ with this. The Eleven Bleeding Nose Candle (as it’s called, despite clearly being a candleÂ holder – tut) is a ceramic head that bleeds from both its nostrils, Eleven-style, as the candle melts. Yuckiest of all, it comes with a ‘nose picker’ because the nostrils sometimes get plugged up with coagulated wax. Hurgh. At 26cm high, it’s quite big, and comes with two red candles for your melting enjoyment.
There are two types of people in this world: those with biological central heating, and those without. I’m definitely one of the latter, with the added joy of Raynauds Syndrome. Naturally, I use any and all tech at my disposal to stay on the right side of frozen, and I’m here to share my secrets. Here are my 3 favourite not-so-obvious ways (read: not USB mug warmers) tech can help you keep cosy this winter. You have an electric blanket, right? Start there, if not.
This is a sponsored article byÂ our friends at dating app Badoo.Â Cuffing season has officially begun and the forecast is looking pretty bleak; endless cold nights-in alone where the only thing getting wet is the rain. Meanwhile, everyone else is coupling up and blocking pavements with their slow pace and extensive hand-holding. How annoying. And yet, you canâ€™t help but consider the benefits of having a bae this winter.
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".
