The first virtual reality arcade recently opened in northern Nevada. The experience takes you inside the game to battle spaceships, zombies and gunmen. Players can also test their balance on a board between moving trains or sky scrapers. They can look thousands of feet to the ground, but they're actually in a safe padded game area. "It's a 360 as sphere so you're looking down or up. You can be attacked from any direction," said Mark L. Anderson who just experienced his first virtual reality game.
A Fernley man created and sells his own line of marinade to help pay for his daughter's mounting medical bills. In 2013, his 11-year-old daughter was bruised playing softball. "You know how kids are. They play around. They get bruised and we got notified from her school she had some bruises," said the creator of Absurd Marinade, Alan Roach. He took her to the doctor. Tests revealed a blood disorder called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura or ITP. It means her body attacks her blood platelets.
A store in the Reno Town Mall, Buy Nevada First Gift Shop, only sells products from Nevada-based businesses. "All the money stays in Nevada. All the jobs stay in Nevada," said Dave Asher, who opened the store three years ago. He says he opened the store out of his love for the Silver State, its people and the local economy. "I have a passion for the Buy Local Buy Nevada campaign. I want to turn the economy around and keep the jobs here. Keep the money here," Asher 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 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".
