Interesting art by young artists is on view in the art gallery Agora Borealis in Shreveport. It is similar to an antique mall, with artists’ booths in a fine old service station built in 1927 in what is now a transitional neighborhood. There is an uneven assortment of art and hand-made items but with pleasant surprises. Products like jewelry, soaps, lighting fixtures, and fine furniture combine with the art in this artisans marketplace.
Crossing the state line into Louisiana has gustatory rewards — the seafood gets better, the drinks flow more swiftly, and complexity of street food seems to ratchet up a notch. It’s where tomatillos supplant hatch chilies and daiquiris are more common than margaritas so Texas taste expectations have to be adjusted. Shreveport, just across the border from East Texas on I-20 has long suffered comparison to downstate locations New Orleans and Baton Rouge, and come up wanting.
Sherry Sicking has set a new standard for Texana interiors. Not that there is such a thing, but there could be. And after a morning spent at her new house in Gainesville, I’m convinced this is it. Texana has all the expected Texan components — big, and really big plus-size cowhides, tooled leather, tile that looks like leather, conchos, decorative iron, portraits of cows, horses and cowboys and serape stripes. Those are the main ingredients. Decorative accessories are brighter and blingier.
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".
