Pay up, or else. The proverbial ransom note might seem a cliché limited to action movies and kidnappings. But ransoms have evolved, with health care data becoming a popular hostage over the past few years. To seize control of a hospital's system, hackers use a form of malware called ransomware, with which they encrypt and block access to computer files. They then send their victims a digital ransom note, which typically asks for a tidy sum in exchange for a key that will supposedly decrypt the data.
Adjusting for the physicians' detection rate did not alter the differences in risk associated with race/ethnicity, the study noted. Black patients were more likely than white patients to be diagnosed with colorectal cancer between screening colonoscopies, a recent study found. The population-based cohort study included Medicare patients ages 65 to 75 years who received screening colonoscopies between 2002 and 2011.
A 21-year-old woman is evaluated for mosquito bites on her arms and legs that she
received 1 week ago that she has been scratching regularly. One of the bites on her
left thigh is now painful with a small amount of drainage. She otherwise feels well,
has no significant medical history, and takes no medications. A weeping red papule
with overlying honey-colored crust is present on the anterior left thigh. Following
a physical exam, what is the most appropriate treatment?
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
