UK twins, Alexander and Chris van Tulleken, decided to use their own bodies to figure out which foods are worse: sugars or fats? In a month-long experiment, the 35-year-old brothers challenged themselves, with one giving up sugar and the other giving up fat, to decide which of them would lose the most weight. In the end, they decided that complete elimination of either food item from their diets was probably bad for their health.
It seems we’re getting closer and closer to a cure for HIV. Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) in San Diego, partnered with City of Hope's Center for Gene Therapy, have reportedly created cells that are resistant to the virus. “The ultimate goal will be the control of HIV in patients with AIDS without the need for other medications,” TSRI senior staff scientist Jia Xie said in a press release.
From Freddy Kruger to Dr. Evil, the “bad guys” in some of the most acclaimed movies have something very simple in common: terrible, terrible skin. According to a new study published in JAMA Dermatology, dermatologists are fed up with Hollywood films villainizing skin conditions. “Symbolic dermatologic depictions are prevalent in film,” says the study.
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".
