Shreveport - The opinions came flying out of the mouths of most people at the Caddo Parish Commission meeting on Monday. "I don't believe in destroying it just because the rest of the country is doing it," said Commissioner Mike Middleton. "Do the right thing and that is to put monuments in their right place," said Commissioner Stormy Gage-Watts. The commission voted on removing the monument totally or erecting other monuments in others' honor, which they ended up stalling on either decision.
Shreveport - The Helping Hands Outreach Program helps people of Shreveport and beyond with the simplest of needs and wants. "To have someone that's there when you need them that's genuinely there for you, look out for you," said Lecentrion Pennington, who has been receiving services for the past four months. "(They) call me every day, make sure I'm doing great. I'm good. This has really helped me out a lot." Today, they hosted Community Day.
For one night only, the independent feature film "Sabotage or Surrender" will take viewers on a ride through a marriage's problems affecting the rest of the family. "In life, people always want to make the right decision," said lead actress Cycerli Ash, who plays "Beverly." "But, there is a part where you just want to feel good in the morning. And maybe that feeling good is making a wrong decision." The husband, Al, brings over children from a past relationship and it proves difficult for his wife.
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".
