About 17,000 undetected asteroids that are large enough to be a concern to NASA may be lurking near Earth, according to a recent report. That doesn’t mean it’s time to panic or start declaring that the world will end on Sunday (or any other day this year) because some non-existent planet is rapidly approaching Earth, but it does illustrate how seriously federal agencies and international organizations take real threats like asteroids and space weather.
A gene editing technique called zinc finger nucleases has been used for the first time in a human to treat a genetic disease, the AP reported Wednesday. A 44-year-old man named Brian Madeux was treated at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland for Hunter syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. The announcement comes days after a video showed exactly how another promising and landmark gene editing technique, CRISPR, works.
Local World War II veterans met for lunch recently at HoBo’s Restaurant in Trenton where they were met with warm greetings by other patrons and treated like gold by their server, Jessica, who doted over each one. The group meets once a month for lunch to enjoy each other’s company and conversations. The location varies as they are always looking for new venues. Most everyone brings a guest with them and everyone pays for their own meal.
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".
