OKLAHOMA CITY - An improved balance sheet and strong hedging activity has helped Oklahoma City-based SandRidge Energy Inc. continue its planned drilling activity despite stalling oil prices, CEO James Bennett said Thursday following the company's annual shareholders meeting. "We're seeing very good rates of return even at today's commodity prices."
The Oklahoman's energy reporters, Adam Wilmoth and Paul Monies, chatted Tuesday with online readers about Oklahoma's oil and natural gas business. To see the full transcript, go to NewsOK.com. Q: What impact, if any, will GE's oil and gas research center in Oklahoma City have from GE's acquisition of oil field services company Baker Hughes? Wilmoth: I'm working on a story about that, but I don't have too many updated answers yet.
Recreational vehicle park owner Anna States has had a full lot for about a year and a half, but it's what lies beneath her land just north of Kingfisher that promises to turn her fortunes. States' Sleepee Hollo RV park holds 40 trailers and campers and is the only such lot in town. Two more are under construction and will open soon, but States said she is not worried about the competition. "I could add 200 spaces and still wouldn't have nearly enough," she said.
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".
