In the pantheon of Las Vegas trade shows, the national bicycle show known as Interbike might not rank up there in visitors with the big galas such as the mega consumer electronics gathering here in Sin City. But I’m a bicycle nerd and proud of it and I’m here to say Interbike was an emotional lifeline when I lived in the humid, sweaty environs in Florida where you’re in the heart of hurricane season when Interbike rolled into Las Vegas the third week of September.
Vegas Golden Knights season ticketholders came to City National Arena to pick up their jerseys and membership gift boxes today and LVSportsBiz.com caught up with a hockey-loving retired couple from Las Vegas who bought season tickets for the franchise’s first three seasons. LVSportsBiz.com goes five questions with Pete and Barbara Landes, New York Islander fans who have been in Las Vegas for about 30 years. Pete is a retired corporate accountant and Barbara is a retired clerical employee.
At 46 years old, he’s not exactly a stud. But then again, Sam Boyd Stadium was never a candidate to be a cover boy for Architectural Digest Magazine. There’s so much public chatter about the Raiders and their palatial $1.8 billion domed stadium they plan to build in Las Vegas by 2020 that the fate of Sam Boyd Stadium has hardly been discussed. But at a UNLV alumni luncheon on business and sports Tuesday, an alum stood up and asked simply, What will happen to Sam Boyd Stadium?
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".
