Oklahoma students who just completed the 10th grade have one week left to apply for a state college tuition scholarship before the opportunity expires. June 30 is the deadline for students who will be high school juniors to enroll in Oklahoma’s Promise, a state scholarship program for students from families whose annual income is $50,000 or less. Students must enroll during eighth, ninth or 10th grade.
OSU-OKC president to step down at year's endNatalie Shirley announced Tuesday she will step down as president of Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City effective Dec. 31 to pursue a new challenge. Shirley, 59, was named OSU-OKC president in 2011. "I haven't finalized my plans going forward. I want to consider things that present a challenge," she said. Leading a public college with shrinking state support has been challenging.
What is Oklahoma doing to fill the skills gap? Oklahoma has more than 60,000 unfilled jobs, and about 18,000 are occupations deemed critical to growing Oklahoma’s economy. Natalie Shirley, secretary of education and workforce development, said those occupations include nurses, engineers, teachers, computer programmers, chemists, accountants and truck drivers. "We have a huge number of those jobs that are open and it will only get larger," Shirley 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".
