The UNLV football team’s fourth consecutive regular season without a winning record will be much easier for fans to swallow if it prevails in Reno against UNR in the annual Fremont Cannon game next Saturday. Such is the nature of rivalries, which are in some ways the lifeblood of sports. Las Vegas is lucky to have several long-standing rivalries spread across its sports teams. Here’s an overview of some of the most boisterous.
As Liberty High running back Kishon Pitts tumbled into the endzone to score a game-icing touchdown to give the Patriots their eighth straight Sunrise Region championship Friday night, he was swarmed by teammates. Through the huddle of teammates embracing a heavy-hearted Pitts, a smile could be seen stretching across his face. It’s one of the first smiles of the week for Pitts, who lost his father in an incident with police in which his mother was also shot on last Saturday in Henderson.
The Desert Pines football team lost 30 seniors, including eight that went to Division I football programs, from last year’s state championship team. A year later, with a roster made up of mostly juniors and sophomores, the Jaguars are right back in the state title game following a 50-28 win over Spring Creek on Saturday. Desert Pines ran away from the Spartans late in a rematch from last year’s 3A championship game with 23 fourth quarter points.
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".
