Thousands of FDA employees will get a reprieve instead of pink slips next week, as new FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb gave them encouraging news about the reauthorization of FDA user fees and their job prospects. Gottlieb told FDA workers in an email Monday that he is so confident that the user fees will be reapproved by Congress before they expire Sept. 30 that he will wait until then to send out required 60-day layoff notices, according to an email (PDF) obtained by Regulatory Focus reported.
Big changes are afoot at GlaxoSmithKline as new CEO Emma Walmsley puts her own stamp on the U.K.'s largest drugmaker, with plans to get more from the company’s pharmaceuticals unit, including a major overhaul of R&D. On the surface, Walmsley appears to be following the playbook given to her by her predecessor Andrew Witty, with a focus on pharmaceuticals, consumer health and vaccines. But below the surface the approach is all her own.
GlaxoSmithKline employees are going to need courage to work for new CEO Emma Walmsley. In fact, courage is one of the criteria that employees will be measured on going forward as Walmsley impresses her own style on employees. Walmsley is looking for ways to make GSK less conservative and more competitive to move the financial needle in the face of its challenges, the Financial Times reports. To help achieve that, she is pushing some functions and a lot of accountability into GSK’s three divisions.
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".
