ArkLaTex - While others are out playing, some are working. "We have to do it," said Luis Gonzalez, who is a construction worker. "We got to get paid, even though the rain, work, cold, snow, we just have to come out. It doesn't mean nothing. Just got to keep working." Temperatures continue to dip in the ArkLaTex nearing freezing. But some have no other choice but to stay on the roads.
Bossier - The Bossier Headstart program will never be the same. "I can remember back in 1984, when I first started working, a little nervous or whatever," said coworker Sharon Paysinger. "I found out that she was someone I could call and that would lead and guide me in the right direction to help me with things I could not understand. That smile and encouraging words." Paysinger is not the only one with memories of Brenda Clay-Ealy.
Shreveport - The Krewe of Sobek rolled through Shreveport as the first parade of the Mardi Gras season. "Well this is really great for the kids, it's a nice activity for them to come out and do," said Bobbie Sparks who was enjoying the parade with her family. "It's been very calm and very quiet here. The security has been very well. The children are enjoying themselves and having a great time. That's what it's all about."
Shreveport City council passes a new drinking ordinance that says:
A) Restaruants can serve alcohol on their patios that are on-property.
B) Festivals/special events only have to go to the police to obtain an alcohol permit.
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".
