Thursday night's New Orleans mayoral debate on WWL-TV was the last scheduled meeting of the candidates before Saturday's runoff. And I can think of at least two people who appear perfectly fine with that.Despite their smiles, the atmosphere between City Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell and former Municipal Court Judge Desiree Charbonnet was chilly, as they took repeated opportunities to raise doubts about one another.Charbonnet was more direct.
Rob Maness has considerably downsized his ambitions. His first run for public office just three years ago was for United States Senate, one of Louisiana's most high-profile and prestigious posts. His latest is for state House, more typically an entry-level office.Still, the pressure may be getting to him.
One noteworthy result out of a new University of New Orleans poll released Monday is that City Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell holds a comfortable 46-35 lead over her New Orleans mayoral runoff opponent, former Municipal Court Judge Desiree Charbonnet.Just as interesting is which subgroups are contributing to her advantage: To be blunt, it's most of them.The poll suggests Cantrell enjoys a particularly broad-based coalition, with some subgroups favoring her more than others but with almost all...
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".
