Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.


Hugh J. Ward is credited with the standardization of the American game Bingo, in the 1920s. Begun then as a carnival amusement, Bingo travelled to New York and eventually the rest of the nation. Often played today by not-for-profit charitable agencies such as churches, Bingo is also played in legal casinos and on Native American owned properties. Bingo continues to evolve, as new ways to win and new bigger jackpot prizes develop. The game lends its name to lottery scratch-off tickets as well. Savvy players such as the 1970s group of ladies pictured here play multiple cards at a time to multiply their chances of winning.
