Why some people develop dementia and others do not often remains unclear. Might blood pressure play a role in this? The researchers analyzed data on 5,646 adults, including blood pressure readings taken when most were in their early 30s and again in their mid-40s. In a 15-year span after the participants were, on average, about 60 years old, 532 people were diagnosed with dementia. No correlation was found between early-30s high blood pressure and later-in-life dementia.
For millions of Americans, the workday is actually at night, either regularly or off and on. Might this have an effect on their weight? The researchers analyzed data from 28 studies, involving more than 270,000 people who worked various shifts in such sectors as health care, government, manufacturing, telecommunications and transit.
Many people take a low-dose aspirin every day as a long-term therapy to prevent cardiovascular problems. Is it okay to stop? Researchers analyzed data on 601,527 adults 40 and older (average age, 73) who had taken a low-dose aspirin daily for at least a year to help prevent such cardiovascular problems as heart attack or stroke. The group was divided about evenly between those who already had cardiovascular disease and those who did not.
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".
