Improving the quality of life in the valley means talking about the hard subjects facing teens and seniors in our community. For most people, suicide is a taboo subject. As a society we just don’t talk about it. In an effort to get the community thinking about suicide prevention, the Nye Communities Coalition and a grant called Safe Schools Healthy Students invited Kevin Hines to Pahrump last month to talk about suicide and his experience with it.
Beatty had another successful fall season and both football and volleyball came away with honors. In football, Leo Verzilli was picked as coach of the year for the second year in a row. He took his team to the Class 1A Southern playoffs as the third place seed, finishing the year 5-3. Verzilli did this with no seniors. According to Beatty High School principal Chris Brockman, Verzilli has a way with the kids. “Leo gets a lot out of these kids, he inspires and motivates them,” Brockman said.
The Pahrump Valley High School wrestling team had a big year in 2014 when they won the state championship and since then it has been hard times trying to get back up to that form. The main problem over the past two years has been senior wrestlers. For the past two years the team has been hard-pressed to keep the kids wrestling into their senior year. According to Trojans wrestling coach Craig Rieger, this year is different. “We have 55 boys out for the team this year,” Rieger 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".
