It's a rare instance when a sitting governor attends a Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission regular monthly meeting, but it’s scheduled to happen on the first Thursday in November.Item 4 on the LWFC’s posted agenda for the 9:30 a.m. meeting is “Governor’s Address to the Commission — Governor John Bel Edwards.” As usual, the meeting is set for the first-floor Louisiana Room inside state Wildlife and Fisheries headquarters on Quail Drive in Baton Rouge.While not stated, Edwards will...
People and pets, and state Enforcement Division agents are at it again, this time in Texas working with that state’s Parks and Wildlife Enforcement Division staff in the rescue operations from Hurricane Harvey.The early totals are Louisiana’s 40 agents manning 40 trucks and hauling 40 boats, taking nearly 1,400 folks and 157 pets in the Houston and Katy early last week.
Here we go again: At least three times during the past 12 years, our state’s outdoors men and women, boys and girls have had to cross their fingers while bracing themselves against Mother Nature’s vicious side.There is a fourth this week, and since the turn of the century we can now add Harvey to Katrina, Rita, Gustav, Ike and Isaac on our list of names we’d never give our children, but names forever etched in our collective memory.We can only hope Harvey doesn’t come to Louisiana with the...
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".
