State leaders argued about the latest funding bill Wednesday during a legislative forum, but agreed on what needs to happen going forward. The state must address structural problems with the budget, the lawmakers told college presidents and regents at the 2017 legislative forum hosted by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. That would resolve funding issues for higher education and all core government functions, they said.
State leaders kicked off the first Oklahoma Career Exposure Week on Monday by highlighting an apprenticeship program at Dell Inc. that pays high school seniors $15 an hour to learn technology jobs. "They have been nothing short of phenomenal," said Scott Haworth, Oklahoma City site director. Haworth said both Dell and the students took a risk that is paying off.
KINGFISHER — Jeff Sargent isn't sure yet what career he wants, but that's not stopping him from pursuing a college degree. "I still don't know, but I understand the future is in technology and software. It's everywhere," said Sargent, who is attending Redlands Community College on the GI Bill. He said paying for college would be impossible without the benefits he earned while serving in the Army from 2005 to 2010. He didn't want to waste that. "I paid for it.
State leaders panel favors lowering 75 percent vote threshold for raising revenue to address structural problems with state budget. Say Oklahoma has a revenue problem, not a spending problem. https://t.co/wejI1NDYSz
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".
