Like the Mother Road herself, Reedy Press, and Jim Ross and Shellee Graham's new book on Route 66, didn't take to being prematurely rolled aside like so many used tires. "Secret Route 66: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure" lives, despite a devastating fire. Ross and Graham, of Arcadia, will have a book signing Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m. at Full Circle Books at 50 Penn Place, 1900 Northwest Expressway.
"The Custer Conspiracy," a novel by Dennis Koller, was my biggest test yet. "Everything is about real estate," I've said for years, every time I cram one more odd or bizarr-o topic into my real estate column. Cats? They live in my house. Wacky memories of growing up in Sequoyah County? It was on a farm. The year (it seemed like) I worked (but it was just) one summer at Whirlpool? It was a factory, and we made refrigerators. A building blew up because of a gas leak. "Real estate fire," I said.
EDMOND — Winds are still mostly stalled aloft in the housing market, with higher-priced homes for sale still sitting longer than they did not so long ago. There's one in Oak Tree that's been on the market for more than two years. So agent Beverly Hamilton isn't sweating yet over one she has a few miles away that she's had listed for just 90 days or so.
WILL PREACH: "The New Beginning is Near” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24, Sun 11am, historic Trinity Presbyterian Church (PCUSA), 2301 NE 23, OKC. @TPCOKC Come, for Christ's sake, for our sake, for your own sake, for the sake of the world.
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".
