Louisiana higher education has gone country in an effort to reach potential students in rural areas. "If you're a person who has never considered college, you might not respond to a call to action directly from the school," said Lucia Folk, vice president of public affairs for CMT. The Nashville-based cable channel is partnering with the Louisiana Community and Technical College System and Louisiana Calling, a nonprofit working to connect Louisianans with pathways to career and financial success.
The Southern University System spends $3.6 million in payroll for administrative positions — those reporting directly to the chancellor or president at an institution. That figure excludes salaries for the chancellors themselves. The total is down almost $800,000 from five years ago. Half of the positions have salaries of less than $100,000, and half are higher, up to $205,000. The lowest salary goes to the coordinator of planning and evaluations with $65,500 a year.
A new report shows which schools have seen students enter as poor and become richer adults. Here's a look at Louisiana schools on the list. The Equality of Opportunity Project looked at millions of anonymous tax records for the study to determine which schools aid income mobility, which is the ability of an individual or family to change their economic status. It usually is measured in income.
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".
