The state usually sees three or four cases annually. Now, at least that many cases are reported each week. Health officials have scrambled to keep up, launching an outreach and vaccination campaign around Salt Lake County, where the majority of cases are centered. The rapid spread of the virus has occurred among the homeless population, due to poor hygiene and unsanitary conditions.
A group of Utah epilepsy patients report cannabis oil use is scaling back their seizures, though perhaps not to the extent lawmakers anticipated when they passed a 2014 bill legalizing the substance for this specific use. The recent University of Utah survey found 73 percent of patients reported a noticeable reduction in seizures after taking the hemp extract along with other seizure-reducing medication.
A revamped state database launching Thursday allows Utah doctors to punch in their patients’ names to see if they are abusing opioids or at risk of becoming addicted. A limited database has existed for several years in Utah. But the new version gives prescribers of painkillers a more immediate snapshot of whether they should prescribe, and how much. It is part of an effort to combat an overdose epidemic in the state, officials told the Utah Legislature’s health interim committee Wednesday.
Utah’s hepatitis A outbreak — 75+ cases so far, more than half hospitalized — is hitting SLC's homeless population hard. The CDC says it's one of three big hepatitis A flare-ups around the country, along with Michigan and the San Diego area. My story: https://t.co/cE9c0w1MSl
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".
