Louisiana College's undergraduate nursing program is no longer on probation, school officials announced Friday. The college was notified this week of the Louisiana State Board of Nursing's decision to grant full approval status for the program. "We are grateful for our commendable faculty and committed students for their hard work and studious efforts during the last year to regain what was lost," Marilyn Cooksey, dean of the school's nursing division, said in a release.
A middle school teacher in Rapides Parish is being remembered as someone who impacted kids and had a passion for distance running. Erin Smith taught eighth grade science and coached cross country at Scott M. Brame Middle School in Alexandria four years. The 33-year-old died Tuesday of apparent heart complications after collapsing during a run. "One of the things that I was very impressed with always was the level of expectation that she had for her students," Brame Principal Mollie Fontenot said.
On Wednesday, students at some schools in Rapides Parish came together as one to show solidarity with the victims and survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. At the same time, students across the country walked out of class to protest gun violence in schools, about 400 teenagers at Pineville High School were dismissed from class to participate in an assembly.
Erin Smith started her career with Teach for America. Her principal remembers how she pushed students to reach their goals. Her parents remember how she was working toward one of her own - running a marathon in all 50 states before her 50th birthday. #laedhttp://townta.lk/2It00En
Students at Pineville High School observe a moment of silence for #ParklandStudents and teachers, whose names are held up on sheets of paper. Some shools in Rapides organized assemblies emphasizing solidarity instead of walkouts. #rpsb#laedhttps://t.co/yyZ7BrwZHa
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
