Chairs stacked on the empty dining room of Liuzza's Restaurant & Bar (Source: WVUE)Chairs are balanced atop tables at Liuzza's Restaurant and Bar on Bienville. Instead of a bustling late afternoon dining room filled with people hungry for a plate of fettuccine or fried green tomatoes, Senator Bill Cassidy chatted with a handful of people sitting at the bar as he surveyed the damage to the business from Saturday's floods.
A car saved from floodwater was saved a second time (this time from fire) by a stranger who simply saw what needed to be done and did it. It is not often you celebrate having your car towed. This tow was different. Saturday afternoon, Keith and Allie Abel watched the water inch higher and closer to swamping their cars on Toulouse Street just blocks from Bayou St. John.
Surveillance video from an Algiers home shows how two men rummaged through an unlocked car. Police are looking for those two men in connection with several vehicle burglaries in the 2400 block of Halsey Avenue on April 26 between 11 p.m. and midnight. The video from one of the victim's homes clearly shows one man checking out the area and then trying the car's door handle.
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".
