In the month of July, agencies across Northern Nevada have fought 17 major wildfires, and it's starting to rack up a high bill. The total firefighting cost just for the first 18 days of July comes to $33.2 million. That's a combination of all the fires that have burned at least partially in Northern Nevada. The biggest offender is the Long Valley Fire, which has cost $7.9 million so far, and it's still burning. The Long Valley Fire sparked near Doyle, California and then crossed into Nevada.
The site of the former Park Lane Mall has been a Reno eyesore for a decade, but in about a week, construction is officially beginning on a massive new development there. The site isn't much but old asphalt, weeds, and occasionally a flock of seagulls. But over the next five years Reno Land Inc. plans to turn the massive 46-acre lot into more than a thousand new apartments and a whole lot more. "I'm numb," Reno Land Inc. President and CEO Chip Bowlby said of the project finally moving forward.
Local Democrats are busy working the phones, hoping to sway Senator Dean Heller toward a 'no' vote on the Senate's newest healthcare bill. "For us, the repeal of the ACA is a direct threat for our family and our son," phone tree volunteer Theresa Bohannan said. She has a two-year-old son with a congenital heart defect. She said his medical bills since he was born already total more than $1.3 million.
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".
