The antibiotic resistance crisis continues with no end in sight. Even as public health authorities across the globe call for action, we have yet to slow the arrival of the post-antibiotic era. Should this unfortunate milestone be reached, even the most common bacterial infections could be life threatening. In laboratories around the world, researchers are trying to find alternative ways to treat bacterial infections.
Fermented foods have become quite popular over the last few years. The addition of microbe-rich products such as yogurt, sauerkraut, kefir, kimchee, kombucha, miso and probiotic supplements into people's diets has been shown both in research and in the mainstream world as a means to improve one's health. However, this increase in attention at the public level has yet to be embraced by those who create food policy, both in Canada and around the world.
There's little doubt Earth's climate is changing. Based on the information available, these shifts do not bode well for humanity. While the majority of talk on this subject focuses on the causes and how to avoid future consequences, several problems are occurring now and need to be addressed. The most covered effects of climate change happen to be weather related. This makes sense as fires, floods, and droughts have significant impacts on large populations.
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".
