Here’s what you need to know about the risks preemies face in the NICU, how they’re treated, and when they might turn into longer-term problems. Chase and Lily’s lives got off to a bit of a rocky start after their mom, Devon MacDonald, went into labour with them when she was 30 weeks and four days pregnant. “Both had to be resuscitated, and then they were intubated,” recalls MacDonald. The next few weeks were a roller coaster, as one issue after another plagued the fraternal twins.
It can sometimes take a little longer for preemies to catch up to their peers and reach developmental milestones. It was a fall evening in Toronto when six-year-old Myles took to the ice at the Air Canada Centre to play Timbits hockey during a Maple Leafs intermission. Strong, aggressive and fast, Myles scored a goal.
The future of the peanut patch immunotherapy treatment is uncertain after a Phase 3 trial failed to meet its main statistical goal. DBV Technologies, the French company that developed the Viaskin Peanut patch, announced in October that while 35.3 percent of patients responded to the immunotherapy treatment after one year, the difference between the treatment arm and the placebo arm of the study didn’t meet a statistical measure that was set out by the FDA.
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".
