Have you ever thought it be nice to ride your bike from Reno to Truckee? In a few years, such a journey will be possible along the Truckee River via the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway. Only a section between Hirschdale and Floriston remains to be completed. In the meantime, you can ride a route that was the primary means of getting from Truckee to the Truckee Meadows back in the mid-1800s: Henness Pass Road. Henness Pass Road was developed by Patrick Henness in 1849 as an alternative to Donner Summit.
More than 100 one-act plays by hopeful writers were submitted to the WordWave One-Act Play Competition earlier this year. A dedicated team of readers weaned the pile down to the three winners, who will be invited to Lake Tahoe to spend three days working with actors and directors to bring the vision of their writing to reality at WordWave on Oct. 21 in South Lake Tahoe. The audience will be a part of the process, as well.
Just 25 miles north of Truckee sits Sierra Valley. It’s a place of cattle ranches and sleepy towns that make you feel as if you are going back to a much simpler time. Thus, it is one of my favorite escapes from the bustle of life in Tahoe City. For me, the best way to enjoy the quiet of the valley is on a bike. The slow pace allows you to truly experience the hawks, sandhill cranes and endless vistas of farmland and ancient barns.
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".
