If last weekend’s Lucedale Carnival Association parade was a soft opening for South Mississippi’s 2018 Carnival season, then Saturday is opening day with three parades rolling on the Coast and another one rolling on Sunday. Yep! The Ocean Springs Elks parade and the Pass Christian Carnival Association Krewe of Legacy roll in their respective communities at 1 p.m. Saturday and the Krewe Unique rolls at 2 p.m. Saturday in Ocean Springs.
Groovy Gras: Pass love and beads is the theme for this year’s St. Paul Carnival Association parade in Pass Christian. The Pass is among the oldest parading towns, with evidence that dates to 1914, plus masquerading before that. With Pass Christian’s long-established connection to Carnival, it’s not surprising many New Orleanians owned and still own homes there.
The Krewe of Diamonds disbanded after last year’s parade, but never fear, The Krewe of Real People The Next Generation will carry on the tradition in Bay St. Louis. It is a fitting transition since the Krewe of Diamonds had picked up where the Krewe of Real People left off several years ago. The 1 p.m. Feb. 13 parade will follow the same downtown Bay St. Louis route the Krewe of Diamonds traveled in previous years with homemade floats of four-wheelers, cyclists, cars and walkers.
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".
