Many of us drink coffee at work. And it comes with a bunch of benefits beyond keeping you wide awake: in recent years it’s been linked with everything from lower incidences of Parkinson’s Disease and Type 2 diabetes to improved heart health. But what about those grannies in the office who drink tea? Well, while you might be multitasking better than Donald Glover and caffeine-smashing project deadlines, old Lady Grey Gloria down the hall might just be edging you creatively.
A Dutch app maker has your back when at the end of the night you both say “yes." There’s nothing better than ending a terrific night with the mutual decision of some time in the sack. But how do you know it’s truly mutual? An average person would simply advise you to engage in proper communication. But Dutch company LegalThings has a better idea: create an immediate “live contract” that you can send to a contact of your choice (the contact you’re planning on getting down with, we’re guessing.
It's not yet official, but we may get a heaping helping of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. It’s probably about five years late but better late than never, I guess. Variety reports that one of the biggest recent complaints of Marvel fans is being answered, with the studio looking to push on with a standalone Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson. Finally.

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".
