“Watching paint dry”: It’s a clichéd joke often tossed around at Anchor Paint. But the true story is that the third generation family-owned, Tulsa-based paint company is in a continuous state of improvement. The company opened in 1962 near East Third Street and South Wheeling Avenue before moving to 6707 E. 14th St. There, Anchor makes 600,000-800,000 gallons of paint a year for everyone from homeowners and contractors to international industrial clients.
Of all the memories Kaylee Morrison, 22, has with her grandmother, Nancy Smith, writing a book together is among the most significant. The pair, who are members of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, co-wrote “Joshua and the Biggest Fish,” a coming-of-age tale about a young Creek boy. Published in August, the children’s book incorporates Creek vocabulary. Smith says tribal culture was downplayed growing up as a result of societal pressures on Native Americans.
Construction continues on the wooden foot bridge over Peggy’s Pond, named for donor Peggy Stephenson. The bridge connects the Chapman Foundations Adventure Playground, the QuikTrip Great Lawn and the ONEOK Boathouse. A construction crew applies shotcrete (liquidized concrete) to the vertical surfaces of the skate park. The skate park is on the south end of A Gathering Place, near East 31st Street and Riverside Drive. The sun rises over the Wetland Garden.
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".
