Sisters Shannon Walls and Sommer Graham are on a military mission of their own. "We have 96 veterans," begins Sommer, explaining how they're visiting nearly 100 veterans in a single day to pass out hugs, thank yous and gift bags. "We love being able to serve our seniors and our vets," says Sommer. The sisters started the non-profit Golden Age Ministries about two years ago. It's what you'd call a 'gap' ministry.
Caddo leaders are investigating allegations that parish employees dumped a dead dog along a rural road. "I noticed a vehicle come by, and it looked like it had a deer in the back," said Ashley Cage, who lives on Flournoy Lucas Road near the former GM plant just outside the Shreveport city limits. "They jumped out and unloaded it and threw it in the ditch." After the large, heavy-duty pickup with a black, flat bed and lift gate sped away, Cage took a closer look.
The memories of three young Bossier Parish teens live on by helping a deserving veteran and his wife defeat homelessness and giving them a fresh start on life. "There's no words for it. It's just amazing," says Sterling Combs, a one-time admitted alcoholic and drug addict. The Combs have been clean and sober for years, Sterling for 8 years and Rhonda for 14.
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".
