LAS VEGAS - Without the Hoover Dam, there would be no Las Vegas, not as we know it anyway. It is considered an engineering marvel and draws more than a million visitors each year. If you live in Las Vegas and have never taken the tour, you're missing an unforgettable experience. So much has been written about the dam since it opened in the 1930s, but it still harbors many secrets, so the I-Team went out to dig into a few of them. Copyright 2017 Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc.

LAS VEGAS - You may have missed the date on your calendar but June 30 was Asteroid Day. It's not exactly a holiday or cause for celebration. Rather, it's a day chosen by scientists to highlight the very real dangers posed to humanity by errant asteroids, the kind that serve as a plot device in the CBS series "Salvation." Nevada is on the front lines of the fight to save the planet. A doomsday space rock hurtling toward Earth can be a gripping narrative.
LAS VEGAS - Almost 50 years ago, an Academy Award-winning movie popularized the story of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The film ends with the two bandits being killed in a South American shootout. But many outlaw historians think the movie got it wrong, that Butch and Sundance returned to the U.S. and there is evidence that the trail may have ended in southern Nevada. On a road about 15 miles northeast of Pahrump, most motorists would just blaze right past a faded sign that reads "Johnnie."
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".
