NIPTON, Calif. - There isn't much that happens in Nipton, California. The homes are small and mostly mobile. In fact, the school house has been empty for years. But right now, the small desert community near Primm is on the verge of being bought by the marijuana industry. "Everything's legal until you get caught," Jim Eslinger of the Nipton Trading Post said as he laughed. Eslinger has lived in Nipton for eight years, longer than anyone else in the town.
LAS VEGAS - The Clown Motel in Tonopah, between Las Vegas and Reno, has probably caught the attention of many drivers. Offering cheap rates and an endless supply of creepy, the Clown Motel is not a mirror image of lifestyles of the rich and famous. It actually interests more of a facility that appeals to the odd and quirky. It's all very odd, but by now, Bob Perchetti is used to it, and he should be; he owns Tonopah's Clown Motel. "This is a historic mining town," Perchetti said.
LAS VEGAS - What should happen to rain water once it falls in the Las Vegas valley? Common practice is for it to flow into Lake Mead, but since Nevada has been in a drought, some communities have clamored for the ability to recycle the rain. "This fills up and then it wanders around the property," said M.L. Robinson, a professor at UNR. Robinson, a professor at the UNR Extension near Silverado Ranch, has a hidden garden that is a labratory for getting water from the sky to the lake.
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".
