It’s called pickleball. A combination of tennis, ping pong, and badminton, and a sport that, as instructor Vicki Sharp says, is growing rapidly in Reno“We probably have about 400 active pickleball players in Reno because it’s so active,” said Vicki Sharp, who teaches the game. ”and so many people can play and enjoy the game.”If you’ve never played, it’s recommended that you start at the Neil Road recreation center.
Thousands of people had a similar plan - head to Las Vegas for the weekend and enjoy some country music. Reno’s Josiah Dixon was one of those. “We went down with all the intention of having a great time,” he said. Dixon and his wife booked a room at Luxor, then made their way to the Route 91 Festival across the street – where the show was interrupted in the worst way. “All of a sudden we are standing up there singing, and we hear what sounds like firecrackers,” he described.
The idea of boxing’s biggest name fighting a non-boxer would normally be a ridiculous concept. But given the fact that Saturday’s fight is forecasted to generate a record $700M, you can easily see why it’s happening. Conor Mcgregor has been sounding like he always does before a big fight. “We are prepared to go 12 rounds,” he boasted. “And I will break this old man. Trust me on that.”And if you are thinking Floyd Mayweather has been saying the same things, that hasn’t always been the case.
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".
