When Colleen and Mark Hall-Patton married, she was aware that he came with a lot of baggage — literally. Seven Las Vegas couples share the story of how they met and fell in love. (Michael Quine/Las Vegas Review-Journal)When Colleen and Mark Hall-Patton married, she was aware that he came with a lot of baggage — literally. “I knew when I married Mark, I was marrying his collections,” Colleen said.
In the late 1950s, Jon Cobain wanted to see the world, but his blue-collar background and lack of experience made that a challenge. That changed when he became UNLV’s first graduate. He ended up working in six countries and 35 states and has visited about 70 countries. He speaks Spanish and knows enough of four other languages to get by in casual conversations. The school opened in 1957 as the Southern Nevada division of the University of Nevada, or SNU. It wasn’t accredited.
Casino host Bobby DeFroda has been working at Sunset Station since September 1997 — three months after it opened — and at first he wasn’t sold on its prospects for success. “They told me, ‘Come down and check out this new casino we’ve built in Henderson; we want you here,’ and I thought, ‘Henderson? There’s nothing but cows out there,’” he said. DeFroda changed his tune when he saw the 80,000-square-foot casino with its southern European design elements, movie theater and fine-dining venues.
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".
