Laser takes the fear out of a trip to the dentistA high-tech tool is now easing fears about getting in that dentist chair. It comes as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports about 20 percent of kids have at least one untreated cavity. They are using a laser at Dr. Ron Plotka's Swampscott dentist office -- something he describes as a game changer. "I don't do anything the same way I did three years ago," Plotka said. That's when he first got the Solea dental laser.
A high-tech option professional sports teams, including the Patriots, have used for years is now helping more and more average patients heal faster. Patients say using the Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill is like walking on the moon. It uses NASA-patented air pressure technology. But Wellesley physical therapist Tim Fagerson admits he wasn't so sure about the machine. "I was skeptical for probably five years seeing it at PT shows until last year in Nashville.
The town of Sandwich thought it had found a solution for one problem: safely disposing of discarded drug needles. It came as the community struggled with the opioid crisis. But along the way, the town discovered another serious public safety issue that surprised everyone. A stop at Sandwich Fire Station 1 is part of Tom's daily routine on the Cape. He comes here to drop off used syringes, part of his diabetes treatment. "This was something that was never available when I lived off Cape.
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".
