Stupid things couples fight about: the list is endless. And accordingly, this week's hashtag #stupidthingscouplesfightabout is taking the internet accordingly by storm as every person on Twitter (well, almost), single or partnered up, weighs in. Is it a stupid fight, or is it the end of the road? Listen to this episode of 9Honey's hit podcast Life Bites:The reason it's so enjoyable to scroll through is because of a basic universal truth: most people's fights are really, really dumb.
It looks like Kate Middleton is considering a home birth for her third child – and there's a good reason for it. "Catherine has said she would love to have her baby at home," said a source close to the Royal Family told The Express this week. The Duchess of Cambridge had her first two children at St Mary's hospital in Paddington: Prince George in 2013 and Princess Charlotte in 2015. (The children's father, Prince William, was born there too as was his brother, Prince Harry.)

Jade Hutchison, 17, found the plain gold band on a Bermagui beach on the NSW South Coast while on holiday with her family when she was just nine. Knowing it was something special, she held onto it and never stopped trying to find the owner.
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".
