Are Aliens Too Advanced for Us to Find? Comparative mammalian neuroscience, paleobiology, the discovery of thousands of planets around other stars in our corner of our galaxy, and the famous Drake Equation all suggest that we are not alone. Within our own galaxy, there should be thousands, if not millions, of civilizations capable of communication and travel between the stars.Read Full Article »
We live in a promising age, when science has begun unraveling the double helix of DNA, and with secrets that could allow significant extension of the human lifespan, and arguably more importantly extension of the “healthspan” — the length of time that a human can be not just alive but also healthy and productive. In the last 125 years, life expectancy for the average person in industrialized countries has risen from under 40 years to well into the 80s.
After 13 years of discovery, Nasa's Cassini probe is scheduled to plunge into Saturn's atmosphere in a controlled burn-up on September 15. Since it arrived at the Ringed Planet in 2004, the probe has returned a series of discoveries, including evidence that the small, icy moon Enceladus harbours an ocean beneath its surface - indications that it might possess the basic requirements for life.
Read my article about the conniving, pseudoscience-promoting @NonGMOProject & how its "verification" helps nobody. Join me in opposing chemical illiteracy by committing to AVOID buying products with the NGP seal & encouraging food companies to reject NGP ---> https://t.co/uWtYhXENqz
US embassy is currently on the Tayelet in Tel Aviv, the most beautiful part of Israel. Spending billions to relocate it to Jerusalem benefits nobody & only irritates millions of people. It would be a major foreign policy blunder. Don't be stupid @StateDept
For the recent episode of @YoungSheldon, apparently the writers did the research to find out that Zantac was available in the late 1980s, but not to find out that ulcers are caused by H. pylori infection, & not by being stressed out..
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".
