On paper, 30 does not appear to be all that large of a number… it’s the amount of days in most months, the second point gained in a tennis match and the total of upright stones that form Stonehenge. But when you consider 30 years—more than a third of an average human lifespan—it becomes a very significant number indeed. Thirty years is something we at Casino Journal have been contemplating quite a bit recently since 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of our first issue.
I’m not much for self-help books, but a recent article quoting an author named Rolf Dobelli caught my eye.He thinks many people are snatching irritation and unhappiness from the jaws of contentment. He writes: “Six percent of all the people who have ever lived on Earth over the last 300,000 years, since Homo sapiens first populated the world, are alive at this moment. They could just as easily have been born into another era; indeed, the probability of that is 94 percent.
The October 1 shooting in Las Vegas was a “despicable and senseless event,” as Geoff Freeman, CEO of the American Gaming Association, aptly put it at G2E last month.As such, any attempts to understand its impact of this human tragedy are best expressed by professionals, and the industry had one on hand at G2E last month in the person of former Boston police commissioner Ed Davis, who works closely with the AGA on a variety of law enforcement activities, who headed the police force during the...
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".
