Just in the past couple of weeks we've taken you to several flu shot clinics where people of all ages were getting vaccinated for this year's season. But what you may not realize, in those last couple of weeks, the number of influenza-like cases have jumped here in Washoe County. “Our flu season is here. Flu activity is picking up. And we are getting ready to head into a season that is symbolized by togetherness. Spending time with friends, spending time with family, co-workers neighbors.
Washoe County Health District reports a total of 53 people have been diagnosed with Meningitis-- with a large majority of the cases being hospitalized. But that number may be deceiving. That's because hospitals must report the disease when it is diagnosed at the facility. Other residents who may have experienced a mild form of the disease don’t. “This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many people that have the mild form of the disease.
Max Sandoval works in Reno, but lives in Carson City. Before heading down I-580 North you'll always finding him fueling up in the Capital City if needed. “I would imagine probably anywhere from, I've seen it 20 cent difference, to 30 cent difference, and sometimes it might be 15 cents. So I save probably around, I have two automobiles, I know for one I save $65 a month because of my commute back and forth,” Max Sandoval, a Carson City resident.
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".
