COVINGTON -- Michael Doherty’s days start out in a classroom, shift to social settings and then physical activities. Not much different than they were a year ago for the 18-year-old. But a closer look shows how much things have changed in the last year. On Nov. 11, 2016, Doherty, then a member of the St. Paul's High School football team, made a tackle that left him motionless on the field.
PONCHATOULA -- Joe San Marco stretched onto his tippy toes to reach the seven-foot-tall water mark left on his shed during the August 2016 flood. The shed is the only original building left on his Ponchatoula-area property. What has emerged is a new, raised and reinforced home that's partially finished and partially furnished. "It's unbelievable," he said looking around the extra large master bathroom. "Sometimes I get lost in the house."
COVINGTON - It's the little things that matter most in life, the saying goes. A visit to the St. Tammany Cancer Center can be a sobering reminder of that. But when it comes to Dr. Jack "Jay" Saux, the little things include radical nail polish, stand-out shoes and an unusual perspective to offer people going through one of the most uncertain moments in their lives. "It's just silly," he said, "And it takes, it think it takes the focus off of a lot of things in a clinic.
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".
