Spring semester classes begin Tuesday at the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University, despite uncertainty about funding for public higher education. Halfway through the current fiscal year, lawmakers have not yet resolved a $215 million shortfall triggered by the loss of cigarette fee revenue that was ruled unconstitutional. Higher education's $773 million appropriation could be cut by millions of dollars, depending on the final budget resolution.
Oklahoma County has purchased and removed 69 homes from the flood-prone Crutcho community in the past decade, but the work isn't finished. Up to 30 more homes could be demolished through the voluntary program to relocate people from homes in the eastern Oklahoma County floodplain, county planner Erik Brandt said. "We've still got some years to go," Brandt said. Nearly $6 million in federal dollars and $1.5 million in county money has been spent to date, he said.
SHAWNEE — Oklahoma Baptist University is starting 2018 with some new students and new responsibilities resulting from the closing of St. Gregory's University. The two private Christian liberal arts universities operated just two miles apart for more than a century before St. Gregory's succumbed to financial woes last month. "It's such a loss. St. Gregory's has been such a presence in our community for decades," Bruce Perkins, OBU associate vice president for enrollment management, said Friday.
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".
