Canadian billionaire Bernard "Barry" Sherman and his wife, Honey, were found dead in their Toronto home Friday, and police are reportedly investigating their deaths as suspicious. A spokesperson for Apotex, the generic drug giant Sherman started, confirmed the couple's deaths Friday. "All of us at Apotex are deeply shocked and saddened by this news and our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time," a spokesperson for the company stated in an email.
The heavy marketing and widespread access to opioid pills sparked a national crisis that’s now labeled a “public health emergency” by the U.S. government. Last year, some 60,000 Americans died of drug (including opioid) overdoses—that’s some 12,000 more than traffic-related deaths in the same year. As physicians look for new, less harmful, ways to manage their patients’ pain, could medical marijuana be the answer--or the makings of another public health crisis?
Incoming CEO at Swiss drugmaker , Vas Narasimhan, said he isn’t interested in following the herd in drug development. “How do you make smart contrarian bets?” Narasimhan said of his strategy for Novartis Wednesday at the Forbes Healthcare Summit in New York City. Narasimhan, who is the current chief medical officer and head of global drug development at Novartis, will take over for current CEO Joe Jimenez in February.
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".
