A coalition of community groups is leading a petition drive to recall New Orleans District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro. It stems from the office sending out documents that look like subpoenas – but aren’t signed by a judge – to victims and witnesses. Cannizzaro says those are no longer being used, but several speakers at a rally outside the criminal court building says those so-called “fake subpoenas” are reason enough to justify a recall.
A team of more than a dozen University of New Orleans students and experts are heading to Austria this summer to help locate the remains of a Tuskegee pilot missing since World War Two. A P-51Mustang flown by a member of the 332nd Fighter Group, associated with the famed “Tuskegee Airmen,” went missing near the end of World War Two. Sixty-six members of the African-American group were killed in action. New information was reported recently about the location of a crash in southern Austria.
The fight to preserve one of three Confederate monuments set for removal is heading back to court. The Monumental Task Committee is renewing its battle to keep the statue of Confederate General P.G.T Beauregard on his horse at the entrance to City Park near the New Orleans Museum of Art. Tulane University professor Richard Marksbury is the plaintiff. He’s lived in the city since 1973, and been involved with the Monumental Task Committee since the drive to remove them began in 2015.
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".
