Nearly 51 million Americans are expected to travel this Thanksgiving holiday, with most driving, according to AAA. (Source: Raycom Media)If you have yet to book your holiday travel plans, you're not alone and it's not the end of the world. But it will cost you more every day you wait. The travel service AAA projects that just fewer than 51 million Americans will journey at least 50 miles this Thanksgiving weekend. That's 1.6 million more travelers than a year ago.
A guitar store is closing its doors after 33-years in business in Bossier City. Many are familiar with the phrase "All good things must come to an end." That ancient proverb is exactly what some say is happening at The String Shop on Benton Road in Central Bossier City, with its upcoming closure.
Two sides are locked in a pitched legal battle over the Caddo Courthouse Confederate Monument controversy. The United Daughters of the Confederacy, shot the first salvo against the Caddo Commission this week in what has already become a long and protracted battle. Caddo Commissioners voted to remove the monument back on Oct.18, then the UDC filed for a temporary restraining order just hours later. That designation would prevent the Caddo Commission from removing the monument — at least for now.
It's the final stretch of this year's @LAStateFair in #Shreveport, in what's been an up and down year, largely because of the weather.
Now there are big hopes for this final weekend. But, will it be enough to reach last year's figures? @KSLA tonight at 10. https://t.co/RBBmvPBlMZ
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".
