BATON ROUGE — Gov. Bobby Jindal delivered a decisive and determined address here Monday as he took the podium to address lawmakers and open the 2015 Legislative Session, his last as governor. Jindal talked progress, budget, education and religious liberty in Louisiana in the speech. He held firm to his no taxes stance despite a $1.6 billion hole budget hole. "We must balance our budget without raising taxes on our people," he said, saying raising taxes the easy way out. "It is their money, not ours.
Results of several of the Caddo Parish Commission's five local tax measures appear too close to call according to vote percentages reported by the Louisiana Secretary of State's office. Although all precincts have reported, the votes must be certified before the results are official. Voters were considering four property tax renewals and one sales tax rededication. Two of the measures appear to be split 50 percent to 50 percent.
Bossier Parish voters spoke resoundingly tonight in the District 8 Louisiana House of Representatives race between Raymond Crews and Robbie Gatti. With 97 percent of the vote in, Crews has 63 percent of the vote. Gatti has 35 percent of the vote. The votes were split nearly identically throughout the evening. The 2017 Louisiana Legislative session is already underway.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
