The original Tree of Ténéré was one of the loneliest trees in the world, if not the loneliest. It was the only Acacia tree for 250 miles, a sickly sprig of life in the remote Sahara Desert and a beloved stopover for caravans and traders until a drunken driver allegedly ran over it in the 1970s. There is a new Tree of Ténéré, however, and it will be anything but lonely at the 68,000-person arts gathering in Northern Nevada's Black Rock Desert.
Just two weeks after recreational marijuana sales kicked off in Reno, recreational marijuana now is available in Sparks. Both Silver State Relief and GreenLeaf Wellness opened their doors at 8 a.m. Saturday to patrons interested in buying recreational marijuana. Silver State Relief was the first medical marijuana dispensary in Nevada to open its doors two years ago in July 2015. GreenLeaf is a new family-owned operation that only opened in May this year.
This article will be updated throughout the day Saturday as more information on local fires becomes available. Paul Duminie stood on the roof of his home on Red Rock Road with a hose. As he watched the fire, that as of Friday night had burned more than 1,500 acres north of Reno in Cold Springs, Duminie thought about all he could lose. Everything he owned was inside that house, as he sprayed down what he could with water. “I soaked my roof good until the sheriff got me,” he said. “Then I had to leave.
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".
