Kenner Representative Julie Stokes has bowed out of the State Treasurer's race because of cancer. Stokes announced she has been diagnosed with breast cancer and faces at least five months of chemotherapy. Political analyst Clancy Dubos says Stokes is a highly regarded and respected state lawmaker. "Especially on fiscal issues," Dubos said. "She is one of the few CPAs as well as a business owner. She has taken the lead on some of the most challenging and difficult fiscal questions."
LSU had two great scoring opportunities in the 7th and 8th innings and failed to score, while Florida put the game away with a four-run 8th inning to beat the Tigers 6-1. It's the first national championship in baseball for the Gators, while it's the first time LSU appeared in the finals of the College World Series and didn't win a title. LSU fans will talk about those missed chances in the 7th and 8th innings for a long time.
A three-run 4th inning by Florida proved to be to much for LSU as the Gators held on for a 4-3 victory to take Game 1 of the best three series. Florida is now one win away from its first national championship. All three runs in the 4th inning were charged against LSU starting pitcher Russell Reynolds. The fifth-year senior from Baton Rouge faced the minimum through 3 innings. But Reynolds walked three straight batters in the 4th inning and was lifted for relief pitcher Matt Bush.
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".
