“(People) just see a guy or a female on a bike with a leather vest and they assume they are in a biker gang,” said Griffith, vice president of the Eagle Riders motorcycle club. “That stigma has been around for a very long time. “We’re not the biker image; we’re just normal guys out there that ride bikes. It’s our passion.”The Eagle Riders, founded in July 2014 and formerly Eagle Riders 518, was formed out of a bike-rental shop in the southwest valley by an employee who worked there, Griffith said.
Summerlin couple Richie and Tami Abuhantash were regulars at Mediterranean restaurant Baladie Cafe before they owned it. The previous owners moved to California and asked the Abuhantashes to take over the north valley eatery. Richie had managed his family’s pizzerias, but Baladie Cafe was his first business venture. Richie, a native of Jordan who moved to the Las Vegas in 2001, said he was excited to own a restaurant rooted in his culture.
Before going to college, Alfredo Melesio Jr., director of land development and community services for North Las Vegas, did not intend to work in government. But when he needed a job during summer break in 1994, the city of Joliet, Illinois, was one of the few employers to respond to his application. Melesio, then 21, spent the summer working for the city’s community and economic development department. “Summer jobs were hard to come by, so I thought this was a great opportunity,” he said.
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".
