The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission appointed two Timbisha Shoshone members to the Yucca Mountain Licensing Support Network Advisory Review Panel, a federal advisory committee tasked with collecting information pertaining to the licensing of the proposed nuclear waste repository. As a tribal community stakeholder group, the Native Community Action Council advocates on behalf of the people of the Great Basin and has been a strong opponent of the proposed repository at Yucca Mountain.
A private nonprofit community-based service is stepping in for a short-term period as Tonopah has lost its 24/7 volunteer ambulance. Reno-based Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority, REMSA, which provides ground ambulance services under a performance-based franchise agreement with the Washoe County Health District, arrived in Tonopah on Monday. The initial contract runs through Nov. 27 to provide 24/7 full-scale pre-hospital care along with transport, Nye County officials said.
For the past few weeks, Tonopah’s streets have been overflowing with trash, and town officials plan to discuss the issue after angry residents took their frustration to social media. The Tonopah Town Board will discuss garbage collection services in Tonopah as part of the public workshop agenda planned for Thursday. Many complained that Hoss Disposal, a waste collection operator from Winnemucca that has a contract with the town of Tonopah, hasn’t been picking up trash everywhere.
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".
