BLOKES have more sex after getting the snip, a study shows. They were three times more likely to have extra action after a vasectomy than have less. Four out of ten said their sex lives had significantly improved. Experts believe the op leads to a more relaxed and spontaneous love life by removing the stress of potential pregnancies. Men also reported higher sex drives, better erections and orgasms and greater satisfaction post-snip. And the benefits were not just restricted to them.
PATIENTS face three month minimum waits for non-urgent NHS surgery under controversial cost-cutting plans. Five local health boards in England – covering nearly one million patients - want to delay elective operations, such as hip, knee and cataract ops. They claim making sick Brits wait will help save cash, as some will get better without surgery. But critics warn it will simply worsen the suffering of thousands of desperately ill patients.
BREAST cancer patients are to get two “life-changing” new drugs on the NHS. Up to 8,300 a year with terminal cancer will get palbociclib or ribociclib after a watchdog said they should be routinely available. The therapies keep tumours at bay ten months longer than current treatments, with some patients seeing their illness held back for an extra two years. It means thousands of women can delay having toxic chemotherapy and its debilitating side effects.
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".
