A coffee puzzle has left the people of Twitter scratching their heads. Twitter user @_herbeautyxo shared the puzzle, which sees someone pouring coffee into a beaker connected to various pipes. You’re then left to guess which cup gets the coffee first. While it might seem obvious at a glance (we presumed number four would get the coffee first), it’s not that simple. As Twitter user @HALFyute soon found out... Still baffled? The answer is coffee cup number five.
Good news dog owners: your four-legged friend might just help you live longer. A new study conducted by Swedish researchers found dog owners had a lower risk of early death overall than those who didn’t own a pet. Single dog owners seemed to benefit the most - with a 33% reduction in risk of early death and 11% reduction in risk of heart attack compared to single non-owners.
A bride pranked her husband-to-be by wearing a cat print t-shirt and joggers on their wedding day. Erin and Ean Goldberg, from Arizona, had agreed to have ‘first look’ photos taken before their ceremony. This is where couples see one another in their outfits for the first time and a photographer is on hand to capture the look of admiration on their faces. Erin, however, had other plans. She plotted with her photographer Molly McElenney so her ‘first look’ photos would have an extra special twist...

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".
