As I move into my dotage, I am always shocked to learn new facts about the history of the world that had escaped me in my youth. As a little boy I would keep caterpillars in boxes and watch them evolve from their relatively ugly self into beautiful butterflies. I was told that in the distant past people had believed that butterflies were spontaneously generated from mud.
One day as I was leaving the nursing home at 7:30 at night, a 94 year old resident called out as I walked by her door: "Dr. Morley can you please come here." Being late for dinner I walked on pretending I hadn't heard her. As I walked past a number of other rooms my conscience told me that I cannot do it. So I turned around and went back to her room. "What is the problem Mrs. X", I asked"Can you come and sit with me because I am going to die shortly."
I am honored to assume the editorship of the Journal of Nutrition Health and Aging from Bruno Vellas. It is our hope that this journal will over the next few years become the major geriatric journal on the international scene. Below is a portion of the first editorial in the journal under my editorship which Bruno Vellas and I wrote together:Over this century we can expect to see older persons live longer, be more resilient and less frail.
Osteltamivir modestly reduces the time to first alleviation of symptoms, but it causes nausea and vomiting and increases the risk of headaches and renal and psychiatric syndromes. There is limited evidence of clinically significant effects on complications and viral transmission
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".
