Members of a New Orleans family became the latest victims of crime as they stood in their driveway Wednesday night. It happened in the 9300 block of Palm Street, where an armed man approached them and forced them inside of their home, according to a friend of the victims. "All of a sudden there was a man in their face with a gun demanding that they kneel down. She was pleading with him and kept telling him they had no money," said the friend, who did not want to be identified.
At any moment when you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, just one collision alone can drastically alter your life. It happened to one North Shore mother who is also a St Tammany Parish Deputy. When emergency responders arrived at the scene, Ally Mahesa was in extreme pain after a rear-end car crash. "It was the most incredible violent impact I've ever felt in my life," said Mahesa. For this St. Tammany Parish deputy it was a reversal of roles - usually she's the one responding with help.
It was a packed Easter Holiday weekend across the Metropolitan New Orleans area. In the French Quarter there were back-to-back parades. Jazz bands, floats and plenty of throws entertained the crowds gathered for the annual parades. The Chris Owens parade did not disappoint. Owens wore a spectacular Easter attire with her Easter Bonnet as she stood atop one of the colorful floats in the parade named after the New Orleans French Quarter legend. "New Orleans makes me feel like I can really be myself.
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".
