Markie Coffer was surrounded by thousands of concert goers at the Route 91 Harvest Festival Sunday night. But it wasn't just the crowd who was with her. She was nine months pregnant and overdue by about a week. "We decided: 'Oh we'll go. Maybe it will help (my baby) come out and we were just there having fun," Coffer said. Coffer, her boyfriend Travis Matheson, and Coffer's brother Cody attended all three nights of the festival. The couple even brought their three kids on Saturday.
At a quiet park in the far Northwest part of the Valley, 58 candles burned brightly to honor the lives lost in Sunday's shooting massacre. "My heart just breaks for the families and for our community," said Chaplain Dennis James. The gathering at Mountain Crest Park, near Lone Mountain and Durango Drives, was supposed to be a National Night Out event hosted by Metro - a yearly event meant to build police-community relations.
A Nevada prisons official said a plan is in place for O.J. Simpson to be released on parole as early as Monday from a facility near Las Vegas. Nevada Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast said Wednesday the process and documents had not yet been finalized for Simpson's release after he spent nine years behind bars for an armed robbery conviction. “He’s looking forward to the next couple of weeks to get out,” Simpson’s attorney Malcolm LaVergne said.
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".
