As the mid-summer heat settles over southeast Louisiana, our photographers have kept busy running from Saints preseason camp to the Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo to a second line for Dolores Marsalis. See a roundup of those images. This is a new featured gallery that we'll be creating each Friday. You can check out last week's gallery here.
It took more than six hours for crews Tuesday evening (May 16) to remove the P.G.T. Beauregard statue near City Park. It was the third of four Confederate monuments slated for removal in New Orleans. Watch the whole process in this 30-second timelapse.
The debate over Confederate monuments in New Orleans moved into the sky over Jazz Fest on Saturday (April 29) when an airplane pulling a banner reading "our monuments our history" circled above the crowds. The banner was flown as headlines Maroon 5 played the Acura Stage, Alabama Shakes played the Gentilly Stage and Usher & the Roots played the Congo Square Stage at the New Orleans Fair Grounds during the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
Friday evening commute was filled with traffic and @BBCWorld talking about how the phrase ‘dumpster fire’ rose in popularity this year, but when I finally got home the neighborhood school gave me a poinsettia. So there’s that. https://t.co/9wyeHA4vOp
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".
