A member of a popular New Orleans band said he was heading to get ice cream with his girlfriend Thursday night when he suddenly became the victim of an armed carjacking. K.C. O'Rourke, a vocalist and trumpeter for the funk band Flow Tribe, said he had stopped at his girlfriend's home in Broadmoor after a benefit concert when his SUV was stolen with two trumpets inside.

Three childhood friends killed in a fatal Sorrento crash early Thursday were headed back home after a night out in New Orleans, celebrating the end of 30-day work shifts for two of them, both tugboat workers.Tomas Jones, 23, Austin Kiernan, 22, and Sydney Persac, 19, all from St. Amant, were found dead after their car struck a tree and became submerged in an Ascension Parish bayou on Airline Highway just south of La.
If some of those haircuts look familiar, you might just be recognizing an Oak Street staple. New Orleans' Family Barber Shop was recently featured in a new ad for Apple's iPhone 7, and it was a surprise even to them. "We actually all found out today," said Alan Seals, an employee at the shop located in the 8100 block of Oak Street. "A couple friends just hit us up and let know." Seals said it was a surprise because when the film crew arrived in March, they didn't disclose what it was for.
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".
