The toys that support the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story have been officially unveiled, and they’re a little disappointing. The whole reveal wasn’t helped by most of them leaking online weeks ahead of time, and while photos can’t reveal every aspect of the new toys the way hands-on time could, most of what can be seen is a big letdown. Let’s take a look. The two big hitters here are Lego and Hasbro.
The Ewok celebration music swells. Now a full-fledged Jedi Knight, Luke Skywalker winks at the happy Force Ghosts of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and his father Anakin Skywalker, and then runs off to embrace his sister and their Rebel friends; Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, and the Droids. And they lived happily ever after. That’s what audiences wanted to believe when the credits rolled on Return of the Jedi in 1983.
It’s difficult to compare the directing jobs of J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, respectively because it’s not a 1:1 equation. The two directors had very different jobs to do: Johnson was the orange to Abrams’ apple, even if they both executed their jobs with the same level of passion. At the end of the day, however, it must be said that Abrams is the better filmmaker when it comes to evoking Star Wars.
Hard to believe, but today marks exactly one year since I attended my very first #Hapkido class. Great friends have been made, health improved, skills gained, weight lost... I am continually amazed at how much it has changed every aspect of my life. http://ift.tt/2FtUsvnhttps://t.co/UXmXOKu0bu
This is Mr. Nabil. He owns and operates Nabil’s Tailoring on Lexington Avenue. He’s in his 60s, and he started #hapkido about 4 months after I did (so he’s one rank below me). Over the last 6 months or so, he’s become my training buddy. I love this guy! http://ift.tt/2H0G1Lthttps://t.co/8HPr3GEhdH
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".
