(The Daily Advertiser) – McComb-Veazey neighborhood where Zydeco King Clifton Chenier grew up has been awarded a two-year $200,000 grant to create a Creole Food, Arts and Culture District.
Stadium seating for 500 and free WiFi are available at a new soccer stadium in Lafayette, billed as the first recreational soccer stadium in Louisiana. The LUS Fiber Stadium on Sonny Roy Lane was opened Tuesday at Moore Park. The stadium is sponsored by the Lafayette Youth Soccer Association/Cajun Soccer Club and Lafayette Utilities System's fiber program. Michael Ritch, LYSA/CSC executive director, recalled driving around searching for fields where kids could play soccer.
Driving on a section of Verot School Road these days where construction is taking place can be challenging and frightening because of a large difference — measured in feet — between the existing road and new lane. "My prayer is to hope not to fall off the road. Very dangerous," Louisiana Farm wrote on Facebook several months ago. The difference in road levels in what's supposed to be a road widening project has some people wondering how the old and new lanes are going to meet.
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".
