Here's some bad news right before the holiday season: 30 million more Americans have high blood pressure today than they did last week.Heart doctors on Monday said that the old standard of 140 over 90 for blood pressure was too high, and that an acceptable reading now should be no more than 130 over 80. That change means that 46 percent of American adults, or about 103 million people, now could be diagnosed with hypertension. That's up for 32 percent under the old guidelines.
It's just the natural evolution of a GPU to eventually be converted for notebook use, and now we see early evidence that Nvidia will be making a mobile version of Fermi ready for sometime next month. A listing on Eurocom's site for configuration of one of its laptops lists a 2GB DDR5 GTX 480M Nvidia DX11 100W part as a $380 upgrade option. Since then, the option has been removed from the site, likely due to the fact that it's an unannounced product.
AMD today kicked off CeBIT 2011 by releasing official images of the company’s upcoming Radeon HD 6990 graphics card – rumored to launch sometime in March. The card appears physically longer than other AMD Radeon HD 6900 series graphics cards and rumored to have dual Cayman GPUs. We saw this card before in unofficial pictures when it went on tour. When seen in the flesh, it dwarfs a full-grown adult male.
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".
