NEW ORLEANS -- An armed robbery on Dreux Avenue and Rhodes Street in Gentilly, an aggravated rape on Arcadia Lane in New Orleans East and a simple robbery on Rousseau Street in the St. Thomas area have one thing in common: the suspects are all juveniles. "This is a result of kids not being heard, listened to, cared for, having proper mentors and guidance, proper education. It's a cycle," said Sonny Lee, founder of Son of a Saint, a mentor program. “They're also getting pressured by older males.
Jefferson Parish Council Chair Chris Roberts says he's fed up with illegal all-terrain vehicles on roadways and highways on the West Bank. "Recently some of them have been crossing the Crescent City Connection Bridge, weaving in and out of traffic and pulling stunts and I just think it creates a sense of lawlessness that is not what we're trying to portray," Roberts said. Roberts says Jefferson Parish isn't seeing a lot of off-road vehicles on streets, but things are getting worse.
VIOLET, La. -- Gary Singletary holds back tears talking about what he saw when he and his wife went to visit their daughter's burial site. "It was horrible to see exposed coffins, to see remains laying about, to just feel like – what happens if we're gone for an extended period of time or we close our eyes? Will anyone even know where she is with so many missing headstones or markers? It's a horrible feeling, I wouldn't wish it on anyone," Gary Singletary said.
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".
