As we head toward the end of the year, many teenagers are preparing for the next big step - the end of high school. This is when the Reno/Sparks Rotary Clubs step in to help those who want to go to college. We took a look at the Achievement Beyond Obstacles (ABO) program that recently kicked off with a weekend retreat. We get there as the students are gathered around and encouraging one another to break a wooden board by hand.
This week, Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada is mourning the loss of their dining room director, Ray Trevino. For decades, we at Channel 2 have had the privilege of interviewing Ray and sharing the work he's done for those in need in our community. He was even a Someone 2 Know, years ago. In this week’s Someone 2 Know, we remember Ray’s life and legacy. It's noticeably somber at the St. Vincent’s dining hall these days.
The nationally recognized event was created to help us all become more aware of the needs of grieving children — and how support can make all the difference in their lives. We spoke with The Solace Tree about the work the group does in Northern Nevada and how local businesses can also get involved. Over the last 14 years, The Solace Tree has served 6,783 children, 3,134 teens, and 2,930 adults.
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".
