We all know that around 50, women go through the menopause. They no longer menstruate and occasionally have symptoms including hot flashes, depression, mood swings, headache and loss of libido. The cause is a dramatic drop in the production of the female hormones, estrogen and progesterone. While universal in women, loss of testosterone, leading to the male menopause, also known as “late onset hypogonadism (decline in testicular function)", is much rarer.
Until she died at 90, my mother was as smart as a whip, a world-class bridge player and interested in all aspects of life. Even in her late 80s, she was open to change. My mother entered the digital age. Typing with one finger on her fancy new laptop, she easily became enamored with the opportunity to communicate with relatives all over the world. She loved receiving photographs of her great-grandchildren, knew all about Bing and Google, and used a webcam for our weekly chats.
Many patients with memory problems see their family physician, who prescribes a medication and sends them home. This is the least important and least valuable component of the workup and care of a patient with Alzheimer’s disease and their families. First, we must confirm that the patient does have a memory problem. This can be determined from the history and physical examination and from specialized memory testing. Thereafter the cause must be identified.
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".
