State Sen. Cathy Osten, D-Sprague, a reliable supporter of the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes’ plan to develop a third Connecticut casino in East Windsor, said Wednesday she doesn’t believe MGM Resorts International has any intention of building a Bridgeport casino. “I don’t think they have the wherewithal or the authority to complete such a project,” Osten said.
MGM Resorts International announced today that it plans to develop a casino in Bridgeport, a $675 million project that would require state legislative approval. The move is seen as the latest salvo in MGM's ongoing attempt to derail the East Windsor casino the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes are seeking to build to fend off MGM's Springfield, Mass., casino project, which is scheduled to be completed next year.
Mohegan — In 1998, fresh out of Cornell, where he earned an industrial engineering degree in operational research, Mario Kontomerkos started digging into “reams and reams and reams” of data as a forensic accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers, the big accounting firm. After a few years there, he moved on to equity research with Lehman Brothers, where the road opened up a bit. Tantalizingly, as it turned out. He could analyze chemicals or waste management — or gaming and lodging.
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".
