MANCHAC — In the distance, a few wading birds drifted over the tree stumps in the Maurepas swamp; others perched in the bleached and broken boughs of a few dead cypresses. In places, the swamp and sky meet at the horizon, an open landscape devoid of the tall tupelos that once thrived here.Conservation groups want to see the trees tower over the marshes once again.
The Transportation Security Administration is tightening security at Louisiana airports ahead of the holiday travel season, agents announced Tuesday morning at Baton Rouge Metro Airport. From now on, passengers will need to remove any electronic device larger than a cell phone from their bags and place it on the X-ray tray. The process has been used for laptops for years and will now extend to electronics such as tablets, TSA representatives said.
Slightly strange Council moment -- they approved the 2018 property taxes, but Watson said he'd be interested in discussion about how ops would be affected by millage reductions. Freiberg specifically said she looks forward to seeing how the Council on Aging provides services
This airport director search committee hasn't even started work and they're already arguing. The interim director (and a presumed candidate) is here. @Vote4Chauna asks if that's appropriate. Others point out that it's a public meeting.
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".
