VIDEOThe white crosses memorial that sat behind the Welcome to Las Vegas sign after the October 1st massacre, have been moved to a better place along with all the trinkets, photos and other memorabilia visitors left alongside them. All of the items have been carefully boxed and moved to the Clark County Museum to await further news. The artifacts are now being separated, cataloged and photographed out of the public eye. The crosses are on display until December 21.
Well, I guess there’s no backing out now. Las Vegas is getting a domed stadium and a National Football League team, even if we don’t need the team. Especially THAT Team! As NFL officials, government officials and the media gathered yesterday to turn the ceremonial first spade of dirt, made it all official and real. When you see this happens, you know its real. You can almost see all the machines firing up and the work beginning. Now its real and there is no turning back.
One of the greatest joys I have as a professional tour guide is showing people from other countries, the real America. The one that they seem to not really know or understand. Like today, I was out in Death Valley with a small group. The words I kept hearing were “WOW”.. “I never knew”… or “I didn’t expect this…”Then you meet the people who made it their life quest to discover just what makes America such a wonderful country. Like this couple in the above photo. They are from Sweden. Literally.
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".
