There would be no need for hearing aids if only humans had ears more like those of barn owls, suggests new research published in the Royal Society Proceedings B.Barn owls suffer no hearing loss as they age because, unlike humans, they are able to regenerate cells in their inner ears. Owls use this sensitivity to help them locate prey. While other birds experience minimal hearing loss when they get older, new research has revealed that barn owls suffer no hearing loss at all.
There would be no need for hearing aids if only humans had ears more like those of barn owls, suggests new research published in the Royal Society Proceedings B. This is because barn owls suffer no hearing loss as they age because (unlike humans) they are able to regenerate cells in their inner ears. Owls use this sensitivity to help them locate prey. While other birds experience minimal hearing loss when they get older, new research has revealed that barn owls suffer no hearing loss at all.
Since the contraceptive pill was introduced in the 1960s, women in the UK have had access to a reliable way of controlling their fertility and periods. Around three million women are believed to be currently on the Pill in the UK. But some experts believe taking hormonal birth control can affect how attractive you appear to the opposite sex. And a recent study published in PLOS ONE has even shown that whether or not a woman is on the Pill can influence her voice.
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".
