Snuppy, the world’s first cloned dog, may live in perpetuity. Scientists have announced the birth of three clones of Snuppy, the Afghan hound who died in April 2015, just 13 days after celebrating his 10th birthday. To “immortalize” the milestone achievement of cloning a canine, South Korean and American scientists recloned Snuppy using fat-derived stem cells taken from the hound when he was five years old.
Sex is rarely a trigger for a sudden cardiac arrest but when it happens, only a third of people who collapse during sex are likely to receive CPR from their partners, a new study finds. Researchers who examined the records of more than 4,500 cases of sudden cardiac arrests found a total of 34 linked to sexual activity, 94 per cent of them involving men. However, their partners were alarmingly reluctant to attempt CPR.
In cool, clinical language it’s known as “unintended intraoperative awareness with recall” — waking during surgery, unable to speak or move. It’s estimated that as many as one or two in every 1,000 people who receive general anesthesia experiences it. People have described waking with their eyes taped shut and hearing surgeons say, “cut deeper,” or hands moving instruments inside their bodies and trying desperately to signal — with a shrug, a twitch —that they’re conscious.
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".
