A radical deal to get NHS patients treated faster by sending them to France has fallen flat – with only two Britons taking up the offer. The scheme, announced to great fanfare two years ago, was meant to ease pressure on waiting lists by taking on up to 400 operations a year. But so far only two patients have gone through with treatment at the Centre Hospitalier de Calais.
Rapid testing by the Hammond Health Center has confirmed 30 cases of Influenza A, better known as the flu, on the Ithaca College campus this week. The H1N1 virus, often referred to as swine flu, is a subtype of the Influenza A virus. The rapid test samples were sent to the New York State Department of Health’s Wadsworth Center in Albany, N.Y., to determine whether or not they test positive for the H1N1 strain, according to Dr. Vivian Lorenzo, assistant director of the Hammond Health Center.
Nearly three million 16- to 24-year-olds weigh too muchNEARLY half of young adults in Britain are overweight or obese, according to shocking new figures released by the NHS. Leading doctors warned that they risked dying at a younger age than their parents unless their diets and lifestyles improved. Nearly three million 16- to 24-year-olds weigh too much – a million more than two decades ago, the statistics reveal.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
