The Ultimate Tailgate Party scored high points with patrons who packed the Graham dining room at Tchefuncta Country Club in Covington on Aug. 26. Hosted by the Exchange Club of West St. Tammany, the event kicked off the football season for the New Orleans Saints, LSU, and Tulane University. Music by Four Unplugged added a spirited spark as did a dance-off between Covington and Mandeville Chiefs of Police Tim Lentz and Gerald Sticker. Lentz was declared the winner but stay tuned for a re-match.
A pro-life campaigner has expressed her concern over recent vandalism to one of the group's poster in Dungiven. In the early hours of Sunday morning the message “Trust Women” was painted on the wall underneath the poster which was put up around six months ago. The poster, which is on a gable wall on the Ballyquin Road, states “Cherish ALL of the children of the nation equally” and symbolises the pressure group formed to oppose abortion on both sides of the border.
The glamour of vintage Hollywood was channeled at Putting on the Glitz hosted by Professional Women of St. Tammany on Aug. 12. Flashbulbs popped as paparazzi snapped photos of the glitterati as they arrived in style via stretch limo. A walk on the red carpet led to a ballroom at the new venue of The Greystone in Mandeville. Golden star balloons floated to the ceiling and pictures of film femme fatales topped tables along with movie memorabilia.
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".
