Could a facelift for a sex shop help reduce blight in downtown Las Vegas? It may seem counterintuitive, but Councilman Bob Coffin believes the answer is yes, and his fellow Las Vegas City Council members supported the idea Wednesday with a 6-0 vote to loosen restrictions on how adult bookstores and emporiums in the downtown core can expand or modify.
New soccer fields, basketball courts and splash pads are coming soon to public parks across the valley after commissioners approved more than $77 million in improvement projects. Public parks have been a big talking point of the Clark County Commission this past year, and at its meeting Tuesday the board made good on its pledge to improve existing parks or finish half-developed ones.
Las Vegas marijuana businesses are calling on the county to take on the big green elephant of its burgeoning industry — public consumption. The Green Ribbon Panel — an advisory board to the county consisting of representatives from the gaming, resort, marijuana and retail industries — recommended at a meeting this afternoon that county staff ask its attorneys to interpret existing federal guidelines to see whether they allow for the introduction of marijuana consumption lounges.
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".
