LAS VEGAS (AP) - In May 2015, an injured thoroughbred mare was found roadside near Moapa Valley in southern Nevada. She had a broken cheekbone, cuts across her legs, and gaping wounds on her jaw and shoulder - the latter large enough to put an adult hand inside. Despite these injuries, she was otherwise well cared for.When emergency veterinarians examined her more closely, they found a tattoo on the inside of her lip: #H06373Those six numbers told a story.
The Las Vegas City Council today welcomed two new members — one a familiar face in Nevada politics and the other a political newcomer. Former Assemblywoman Michele Fiore and retired Col. Steve Seroka were sworn in by Mayor Carolyn Goodman at a meeting this morning. Fiore represents Ward 6, which encompasses Centennial Hills and the far northwest. It is the fastest-growing ward in the city.
Clark County commissioners want strict rules in place for any marijuana businesses found breaking its local laws. Dispensaries and cultivation facilities operate under business licenses and special-use permits granted by the county. That means the commissioners, who also meet as the Zoning Board, already have the ability to hold a public hearing and revoke said licenses and permits, effectively shutting down a business in violation.
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".
