Junior high students in parish schools are learning science – without the use of textbooks. Teachers are utilizing alternative styles of teaching, as well as hands-on activities, to teach the subject. “With the never-ending changes that occur within education on a yearly basis, I can certainly understand where confusions about curriculum would be present,” said Director of Curriculum and Education Susan Horne. The State revised the science standards for grades K-12. “The La.
What happens if a member of law enforcement falls on hard times? If they are killed or injured in the line of duty, there are programs in place to assist, but what do they do if they have an illness, accident or have a critically ill child? They miss work, get behind on bills, have travel and lodging expenses and no additional compensation. A group of women from Natchitoches stepped up to the challenge of assisting law enforcement officers, deputies and troopers in their time of need.
Natchitoches Parish School Board members unanimously voted to appoint Katrina Wilson Willis as interim District 5 representative. The seat was vacated by the sudden death of her mother, the late Joella Wilson Collins. “It is an honor,” she said after accepting the appointment Thursday, Aug. 31. “It is also heartbreaking. I want to let you all know I will try to represent her, and you all, as best as I can. I thank you.”Two applied for the position by submitting letters of intent.
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".
