Ichim Bogdan Cezar, a man in Plymouth, U.K., thought he was ordering $4,100 worth of bitcoin-mining hardware on Amazon. Instead, he got a copy of the DreamWorks animated title The Boss Baby. According to the Plymouth Herald, Cezar bought a Tanli ASIC Processing Bitmain AntMiner S9 for his brother-in-law in Romania, because Amazon didn’t deliver the hardware to that country.
If you perhaps left your jacket (or bag, maybe?) on the F train this weekend, we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is we know where it is. The bad news is it’s on fire. This video, captured by Twitter user @Stibbanski, shows what looks to be like a jacket burning on a stopped F train:While we’re guessing it’s a jacket just from general shape and placement, it’s entirely possible it’s a bag as well. It’s tough to tell, because it’s on fire.
The Good Wife has seen characters leave the show in a variety of ways: dramatic exits (Will Gardner catching a hot one in a court room), greenscreened exits (Alicia and Kalinda’s final drink), and unexplained exits (it seems that Robin the investigator is still showing up at the warehouse office space, day after day, wondering where everyone has gone).
last bit on le guin and then i'll probably go read 'very far away from anywhere else' tonight: I've always loved this bit from foreword she wrote for "Roadside Picnic" ( the novel the movie STALKER was based on) https://t.co/oBjrY0uWIt
@mari_ness one of the reasons i think le guin was so good is that in every work there always a sense of someone very kind but not sentimental behind it all. being kind without inserting ourselves into the process is one of hardest things to do, and she seems like she did that
They walk ahead into the
darkness, and they do not come back. The place they go towards is a place even less imaginable
to most of us than the city of happiness. I cannot describe it at all. It is possible that it does not
exist. But they seem to know where they are going
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".
