CARSON CITY — NV Energy says a bill passed by the 2017 Legislature may mean higher-than-necessary power bills for its customers. The concerns are expressed in prefiled testimony presented to the state Public Utilities Commission, which today began an expected three-day hearing on changing rates to promote solar energy. The utility has presented a plan to change the rates for customers in Southern and Northern Nevada. The PUC has until Sept. 1 to approve, revise or reject the rates.
By Cy Ryan (contact) Friday, Aug. 18, 2017 | 9:41 a.m. CARSON CITY â€” The Peppermill casino in Reno is the latest company in Nevada to leave NV Energy. The state Public Utilities Commission approved a stipulation this week to let the hotel-casino buy its power from outside Nevada. But it must pay an up-front cost of $3.3 million so other ratepayers will not see increased rates due to the departure. The Peppermill will buy power through the Western Electricity Coordinating Council starting Jan. 1.
CARSON CITY — The American Civil Liberties Union says it opposes the state’s decision to use an untested combination of drugs in the planned Nov. 14 execution of killer Scott Dozier at the state prison in Ely. The organization, in a news release today, said the three drugs used for the lethal injection have never been used together before and that they should be reviewed by a court to see if they meet federal and state standards. Dozier has asked to be put to death for a Las Vegas murder.
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".
