LAS VEGAS — Femoral fracture bracing showed efficacy and was found to be cost-effective when compared with spica casting for the treatment of pediatric diaphyseal femoral fractures, according to data presented here. “The DF2 is a reasonable alternative to hip spica casting,” David Speers, CPO/L, a certified orthotist and prosthetist at Scheck & Siress in Schaumburg, Illinois, said at the American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association World Congress.
As the mad circus of parliament whirled on this week, there was a brief reminder of a time when politics was stable, when serious reform was achievable and when parliament wasn’t a place for playing dress-ups. Bob Hawke and John Howard shared a stage to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Old Parliament House, now the Museum of Australian Democracy. Hawke and Howard fought some bitter wars in that old building. They also cooperated when it mattered most - on economic reform.
To say there is a quiet week in prospect for economic data borders on an under-statement – certainly a very, very quiet week lies ahead in Australia. In Australia the week kicks off on Monday, when the Commonwealth Bank releases the business sales indicator – a measure of economy-wide spending derived by looking at credit and debit card transactions across Commonwealth Bank terminals. On Tuesday, the usual weekly consumer confidence survey data is issued by ANZ and Roy Morgan.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
