Technology and health have been entwined throughout human history — discoveries in one lead to developments in the other. Now with universal access to the internet in the least developed countries by 2020 as a United Nations goal, ‘telehealth’ has the opportunity to shape health systems on a global scale. The Swasthya Slate is one tool being used in regions that would typically lack healthcare.
This is a Comment Piece and its views are exclusively those of the author. The free world stands at a crossroads. Recent technological advances such as big data, artificial intelligence, cybernetics and behavioural economics are playing an increasingly significant part in our lives. We must face the moral and ethical issues raised by these new instruments at our disposal, and make collective decisions on how they should be best used in order to benefit both mankind and the environment.
“Make America great again”. These words, now an unmistakeable slogan, have echoed loud and clear to every corner of the world since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America on January 20th, 2017. We are now almost nine months into the Trump era. The reactions from the public have thus far been mixed, ranging from shock and utter disbelief for the many, and to jubilation and rejoice for the few.
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".
