Is the latest “Star Wars” movie filming near Reno? • Short answer: No. The claim was made by a website that makes up stories. A reader suspected a story on her Facebook feed was fake, but she wanted to be sure and asked if I could look into it. Its headline said, “Next Star Wars Film to be Shot Near Reno, Nevada, Hundreds of Extras Needed.”A lot of clues quickly reveal the story to, indeed, be a hoax, starting with the poor punctuation in the headline – it could really use a semicolon.
Does a Reno animal testing lab make the dogs it uses available for adoption, as required by Nevada law? • Short answer: Yes, the dogs used in drug testing who are deemed suitable for adoption are made available to Charles River Laboratories’ employees and a local rescue group called Canine Rehabilitation and Rescue Sanctuary, which adopts them to the public.
Are more nonstop flights from Reno to Portland and Seattle coming? How much can Reno's airport grow before it needs to build new infrastructure? • Short answers: The return of Southwest's nonstop flights from Reno to Seattle and Portland are being actively pursued – "We’re going to bring that flight back," said a Reno-Tahoe International Airport spokesman. The airport is using only about half of its capacity right now. These and other airport questions are answered more fully below.
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".
