Oklahoma Department of Transportation says it hopes to complete the most-expensive road project in state history, widening I-235, a little sooner than originally expected. The massive project to widen Broadway Extension from 4 to 6 lanes began earlier this year. ODOT has asked motorists to take alternative routes, like I-35, I-40, and city streets, like Classen, Lincoln, and Martin Luther King, to take the burden off of I-235 construction zones.
Some shoppers at the Smart Saver grocery store off NE 23rd Tuesday afternoon were confronted by Oklahoma City Police. They weren’t really accosted, the two officers actually handed those shoppers hundred-dollar Smart Saver gift cards, and only asked for a hug in return. The police department says it was just a small way to give back. Loc Ngyuen was one of the two officers who handed out the gift cards.
Edmond has done away with its annual “Parade of Lights” the first Saturday of December. Instead, December kicks off what the city’s calling “Luminance.” City Spokesman Casey Moore says “Luminance” will last the entire month of December, and will be a light display at Mitch Park. “The issue with the parade was if the weather was bad, you really couldn’t reschedule because there’s so many other things going on in December,” he 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 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".
