Recreational marijuana will soon be legal in Nevada, but travelers might not be able to light up at the airport. The Clark County Commission will hold a public hearing Aug. 1 to consider whether to outlaw the possession, use or advertising of marijuana at McCarran International, Henderson Executive, North Las Vegas and other regional airports. The move, airport officials said, is aimed at complying with federal laws that prohibit the use of marijuana.
Tokers prepare: Recreational marijuana sales appear to be coming July 1 after all. A legal challenge by alcohol distributors over who could transport recreational marijuana between cultivation facilities and dispensaries looked as though it might push back the state’s goal of rolling out marijuana sales on July 1.
Wednesday’s marathon Las Vegas City Council meeting acted as a sendoff for City Manager Betsy Fretwell and Councilmen Bob Beers and Steve Ross. Beers lost his bid for reelection to Col. Steve Seroka in last week’s municipal election, while Ross is leaving due to term limits. Beers won the Ward 2 seat in 2012 during a special election and was elected to a full term in 2013. Ross won his first term in 2005 and won re-election in 2009 and 2013.
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".
