METAIRIE – Nearly a decade ago Kathleen Garcia attended a first aid class at Archbishop Chapelle High School where she was taught how to perform CPR if someone needed it in a life-saving situation. While some other freshmen may have been tempted to glaze over the class, Garcia said she paid attention, but she had no idea that she would have to call on those skills more than a decade later to save someone she loved so dearly.
NEW ORLEANS -- It's a story out of Georgia that went viral this week, and had parents accusing a school of "fat shaming" their kindergartener. So we wanted to ask an expert if -- and how -- schools should get involved in a child's weight, and medical studies show the school may have crossed the line. ă€€ The Georgia public school form checked the nutrition box indicating a five-year-old's body mass index was too high.
NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans has lost a former NOPD officer who some are calling legendary. Dwight Deal passed away late Tuesday night at the age of 61 from several forms of cancer. Deal's colleagues called him the epitome of what a top homicide detective should be. They say for decades, he was relentless in solving cases and being the spokesman for the victims' families. Last October, Medical Reporter Meg Farris talked to him about his battle with breast cancer.
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".
