A study by researchers in the U.K. has suggested that young breast-cancer survivors with BRCA gene-mutations are unlikely to benefit from radical breast removal. BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 are known as tumor suppressor genes which aid DNA repair in breast tissue. When these genes undergo undesirable changes, the risk of breast and ovarian cancer increases. This risk is usually inherited and women with familial history of breast and ovarian cancers are evaluated for mutations in these two genes.
Claims of U.S. President Donald Trump being the “healthiest individual ever elected to presidency” will be put to test later this week.

Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth let fans know they went on a date on Christmas night. They shared an image from their dinner, prompting Duggar family fans to remark about Joy-Anna’s appearance. While Joy-Anna Duggar’s due-date is anyone’s guess, she is likely around 30 weeks pregnant. According to People, the couple announced that they are expecting, back in August, but have remained tight-lipped about the pregnancy’s progress, only sharing an occasional Instagram update.
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".
