A Kenner woman remains in critical condition after deputies say two carjacking suspects crashed into her car. That wreck happened Saturday night at the corner of the I-10 Service Road and North Woodlawn in Metairie. But before that, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office says the suspects carjacked a family at Lakeside Mall. We talked with one of the victims in that crime. "All I could think about was the kids in the car and I had to get them out," said the victim, who is not being identified.
Congressman Steve Scalise remains in critical condition in the intensive care unit of a D.C.-area hospital. The Med Star Washington director of trauma said when Scalise arrived, there was an "imminent risk of death," but now doctors are encouraged by his improvement. "I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in, and certainly whatever you think of the word critical, he was as critical as you can be when he came in," said Trauma Director Dr. Jack Sava.
The Better Business Bureau has a warning about a door-to-door scam. "I don't know how legitimate it is. I went inside and told my husband I wasn't comfortable, that I thought there was just somebody trying to sell a security system. I don't know, I didn't sign up for it," Fitzpatrick said. She said a man came to her door trying to sell an alarm system package, and he even brought up the recent mass shooting that happened near Tulane and Ulloa.
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".
