Coffee drinkers swear by the pick-me-up they get from their daily cup (or two or three) of coffee. Might the benefit of regular coffee consumption extend beyond this energy boost? The researchers analyzed data on 451,743 adults, most in their early 50s at the start of the study. During the next 16 years, 41,693 people died. Those who regularly drank the most coffee were the least likely to have died.
Shingles brings with it an intense pain that sometimes lasts long after the blistery rash has disappeared. Might this disease also carry risk for other health problems down the road? The researchers analyzed a decade of data on 46,426 adults, half of whom had developed shingles. Compared with those who had not had the disease, those who did have a shingles diagnosis were 59 percent more likely to have a heart attack, 35 percent more likely to have a stroke and 41 percent more likely to have both.
In recent years, many young people have been enticed to try the newest addition to smoking options: e-cigarettes. Might using e-cigarettes, or vaping, lead to smoking traditional cigarettes? The researchers analyzed data from nine studies, involving 17,389 adolescents and young adults, 14 to 30 years old. Study lengths varied, but most lasted one to two years.
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".
