A ROBOT that can be implanted into the body will be used to treat a rare birth defect in babies, after a “breakthrough” in tissue engineering by a Yorkshire university and a prestigious US hospital. Engineers from University of Sheffield worked with Boston’s Children Hospital and Harvard Medical School to create a robot that can be used to help treat babies with oesophageal atresia, which affects how the oesophagus is connected to the stomach - meaning food can’t reach the stomach.
BUILDING work could begin on almost 1,500 new homes in the Sheffield City Region in a matter of months after an £8m pilot project aimed at building houses faster gained pace. The Sheffield City Region (SCR) Housing Fund pilot launched just three months ago to encourage local authorities, registered housing providers and private sector developers to build to help meet the SCR target of providing at least 7,000 new homes a year.
A HARROGATE mother battling cancer for a second time who was given ”cause to be optimistic” by a drug treatment pioneered in Yorkshire has welcomed the news it could be used to treat other types of the disease. Researchers at the University of Sheffield, funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research, first discovered that PARP-inhibiting drugs could be used to treat ovarian and breast cancer patients with a BCRA mutation back in 2005. BRCA genes repair damaged DNA and normally prevent tumour development.
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".
