Gov. Mary Fallin signed executive orders Tuesday that could force consolidation of some K-12 public school and university administrations. She also signed an order that limits agencies from spending a total of $10 million per year on promotional items that aren't part of their core missions. Her cost-cutting move, just days after vetoing most of the Legislature's special session budget bill, could end up swaying some of the more conservative lawmakers who opposed raising revenue.
Maj. Gen. Myles Deering is retiring after nearly three years as executive director of the Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs. Gov. Mary Fallin announced Deering's retirement, calling him a well-respected officer and a distinguished commander for the six years he led the Oklahoma National Guard as adjutant general. Deering took the Veterans Affairs post after retiring from the National Guard, where he led deployments to Iraq and to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
The Oklahoma Health Care Authority now will wait until Jan. 1 to decide whether to cut Soonercare provider reimbursement rates. The authority also will consider less of a cut than originally planned. Its decision came after Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed most of the Legislature's budget bill but left some of the funding intact, including $22.8 million earmarked for the OHCA.
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".
