McDonald's has the Big Mac. Northern Nevada's Nuggets have the Awful Awful, a huge two-patty hamburger, served with french fries that many say is a meal in itself. The "Awful Awful," a 60-year-old Nevada tradition, is known for its half-pound burger grilled to order, smothered in a secret sauce and served on a fresh-baked, lightly toasted onion bun with all the trimmings. The burger, named for being awful big and awful good, is usually served in a basket filled with a pound of fries.
A Sparks man faces up to 35 years in prison after he was found guilty of breaking into a home and stealing jewelry, electronics and a gun. Jerome Alan Kelly, 29, was found guilty last week of burglary with a firearm, grand larceny of a firearm and ex-felon in possession of a firearm. He was also accused of possessing a controlled substance, according to the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office.
It’s been a year since pilot Thom Richard posted a video of an airplane, which slammed into him on the runway just before takeoff at the National Championship Reno Air Races. In the video, the other aircraft crashes into the rear of Richard’s airplane. The airplane’s wing sliced through the canopy, splinting Richard’s hand and nearly hitting him on the head. We caught up with Richard to see how the crash affected his career and his love of flying. The questions and answers were edited and condensed.
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".
