FOX 8 legal analyst Joe Raspanti believes the incident at LSU being investigated as a potential hazing death could lead to criminal charges if others are found to be involved. "This could become negligent homicide very easily. You have a death that was caused by the negligence of someone else. You allowed someone to get in a situation by whatever the facts may be, by drinking too much, by falling somewhere, you were negligent in allowing their death to occur," Raspanti said.
Thursday, construction crews worked on the drainage and repaving project along Bourbon Street that is months behind schedule, and for some businesses the constant delays and construction in front of their doors have forced them out. "We all expected it to be difficult for a bit, but not this long," French Quarter Business League President Alex Fein said. "Some of this construction started in middle of July, and it's not going to be finished until December and that's just a lot longer.
A St. Charles Parish councilwoman may have violated state ethics laws when she sold land to her nephew for $100 and then that land was involved in a more than $1 million deal with the parish. "This was not in what we say in the law as an arm's length transaction between disinterested parties. Far from it," Tulane Law Professor Joel Friedman said. "This is what you would call a sweetheart deal."
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".
