Tate Britain, London, 2 November 2017–7 May 2018It is difficult to read the introduction to this show at the beautiful Tate Britain without a thought for our present difficulties with the European Union. Following the destruction of Paris in the Franco-Prussian War and the Paris Commune, thousands of French people, including over 3000 Communards and their families, were able to cross to Britain and settle here without restriction. They were welcomed with open arms.
The consultation, the central activity of general practice, is the theme of this issue of the BJGP. This brief yet potent encounter has been endlessly discussed and dissected. What goes on in it and what should go on? How can it be structured and choreographed? How long is it and how long should it be? What happens when an intruder appears — a trainee, a relative, an interpreter, a medical student? A computer? How do we make it easy for patients to get one — but not have too many?
I trained to be a GP after a number of years as a hospital doctor. I had become comfortable with the laborious inductive methods used in internal medicine to arrive at a diagnosis. The diagnostic approaches used in general practice perplexed and intrigued me, and led me to the research of Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman, and their paper on making judgements in conditions of uncertainty.1 What was happening in general practice?
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".
