WDSU has new details about a masked gunman who robbed Vincent's, a popular restaurant on St. Charles Avenue. One of the eatery's employees, who said he and his co-workers were held at gunpoint, is speaking out. "I put my hands up and he led us out here where we all had to get down on our knees with our hands up and he had a bag with him he said put the money in the bag,” Byron Heffner said.
After 26 people were shot and killed while at church in Texas, the massacre sent shock waves through New Orleans. WDSU spoke with locals who said the tragedy is impacting their daily routines. "Knowing what happened in Texas is really affecting me every way; I can't even sleep at night,” Brandon Jones said. "It makes you scared to even just go to places because, you know, you never know when something may happen,” Leshean Hodges said. "It was a bad feeling,” Latonya Kennedy said.
November is officially here and New Orleans is about two weeks out from the runoff election. Jay H. Banks and Seth Bloom are fighting for a seat on the city council to represent District B. Banks and Bloom said they have stepped up their campaign efforts after the October election. District B represents the Central Business District, Garden district, Irish Channel, Central City, Broadmoor and parts of Mid-City. Both candidates said public safety is one of the biggest issues.
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".
