Cora Monroe has been line dancing for exercise about eight years, but she’s not boot scootin’. Monroe attends the urban line dance classes held at three Shreveport Public Assembly and Recreation community centers. While many of the steps are similar to country line dancing, the music strikes a different note. “I go to different classes and each class has a different flavor to it,” Monroe said. “Some people like a smoother music, some like more hip hop music, but it’s just fun.
Downtown office dwellers and residents should have a new spot to grab a cup of joe before the end of the year. Rhino Coffee, the popular locally owned coffee shop/eatery on Southfield Road, will open a new location on the ground floor of 624 Texas St., the old Sears Building which is being renovated into Lofts @ 624. That’s fantastic news — both personally and professionally — for Alexandyr Kent, executive director of Robinson Film Center, which is located across Texas Street.
Pamela Purgerson knows what her family will be doing the night before Thanksgiving – peeling, chopping, slicing, cracking and grating. Another certainty: Somebody will be caught red-handed. Ever since she was a little girl, Purgerson’s family has prepared for the next day’s feast by gathering on Thanksgiving Eve to make a fruit salad of bananas, apples, oranges, cherries, pecans and a coconut cracked and cut up by her dad, James Stapleton.
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".
