People with cirrhosis often are noted to have a low platelet count. Platelets are essentially blood cells that are involved with clotting. While low platelets are not inherently dangerous, people with low platelets are at increased risk of bleeding when they undergo any type of procedure that involves cutting the skin, mucosa or any type of interventional procedure. Low platelets in liver disease are a result of a combination of splenic sequestration and decreased bone marrow production.
If it’s possible for a 31-point victory to be a weak showing, that’s what Marty Walsh’s re-election was. In a booming economy, against a weak and virtually unfunded opponent, with the backing of virtually every political figure in the city, Walsh garnered 65% of the vote. That’s not even equal to Menino’s 68% against Maura Hennigan in 2005 — the figure members of his own team set their sights on — let alone Menino’s 76% against Peggy Davis-Mullen in 2001.
Regular voters in targeted Boston neighborhoods have been swamped with mailers and handouts, and their phones have been ringing regularly with the cheery voices of campaign volunteers or robo calls. Some of that has come from the mighty Marty Walsh re-election campaign, which finally opened up its wallet to spend a quarter-million dollars in the last half of October—roughly half on printing and mailing. But a lot has come courtesy of city council candidates.
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".
