As the quest for answers ensued after the horrific events of 1 October, an angle surfaced that captured the imagination of both the media and the public. Shooter Stephen Paddock was a gambler. And not just any gambler, but a bona fide high roller. It’s a fascinating facet of this otherwise terrible story that was reported, literally, worldwide.
Sometimes you have to travel for a deal. Chances are you’ve never heard of the Wa She Shu casino in northern Nevada, but there’s a rebate-on-loss deal there that’s better than anything available in Las Vegas and one of the best to run anywhere in some time. Wa She Shu is located 50 miles south of Reno in Gardnerville. But it’s worth the trip for a $1,000 loss-rebate deal (lose up to $1,000 and get it back in free-play) that requires only one return trip within six weeks to cash the rebate.
Once upon a time, there was a whole lot to say about Monday Night Football parties in Las Vegas. It was a wide-open competition with free hot dogs and beers, gambling promos and even big-name concerts in the mix (I remember catching Eddie Money at the Rio). Things have tapered off gradually, finally hitting a point where, for the first time in 15 years, not a single free dog or beer is to be had on Monday nights. The last holdout was Sam’s Town, which has finally discontinued the practice.
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".
