But if Dr. Parran was ahead of his time, he was also complicit in two of the most egregious medical scandals of the 20th century. And that blight on his record is now endangering his honored place in the world of public health. The sexual disease association is seeking comment from its members and the public to determine the fate of the Parran Award; as of April 1, in a nonbinding vote, 62 percent of 210 viewers favored removing his name from it. An official decision is expected this month.
President Bush will avoid taking the sleeping pill Halcion because of the public controversy over the side effects it may cause in some people, the White House spokesman, Marlin Fitzwater, said yesterday. But Mr. Bush's personal doctor, Burton J. Lee 3d, said in a telephone interview that he would not completely exclude the possibility of prescribing Halcion if it were medically indicated for Mr. Bush, who is 67 years old. Halcion has been the focus of a controversy over its safety.
Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, said Sunday that the increase was attributed to the president’s diet. While Mr. Obama often eats healthful meals prepared by the family’s chef, Sam Kass, he also takes advantage of around-the-clock food available to him during long workdays at the White House, Mr. Gibbs said. “I think it’s a few more burgers and a few more desserts over the past year,” he said. Cholesterol measurements can vary among laboratories.
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".
