Gustavo Covarrubias-Garcia remembers the short story “Cathedral.” While the 1983 work of fiction by Raymond Carver has many themes, Covarrubias-Garcia recalls the way the character with vision treated the character without sight. “The story emphasizes how the narrator knows nothing about being blind,” he said. “It’s true. People don’t know what we’re capable of doing.”It’s not just the rest of the world that doesn’t understand how resilient the blind community is, Covarrubias-Garcia added.
Las September, Andrew Hustak arrived at Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada a broken man with only $6 to his name. He didn’t know what to do and figured the nonprofit could help him get his life back on track. “The first thing they asked me was, ‘have you eaten today?’ ” he says. “I hadn’t eaten in a day and a half.”Hustak was able to enjoy one of Catholic Charities’ free community meals served every day to anyone in need.
“I’m one excited mayor,” says City of Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman at the start of her seventh State of the City address. “It’s gonna be a banner year.”In her 60-plus minute speech, Goodman made time for jokes on annexing land from Clark County and wondered who was betting on the length of her speech—her husband even asked about the over and under. “When have you ever known me to be under,” she asks.
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".
