LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - A Lawton student is a prodigy on the piano, despite never having one of his own. But Wednesday, that all changed thanks to the generosity of a few members of our community. We brought you 16-year-old Cameron Simpson’s story last Friday and immediately after it aired, one of our viewers reached out and said he wanted to give Cameron a piano. Cameron has been battling his entire life, from being born prematurely at 23 weeks, to having 10 surgeries, including heart surgery.
APACHE, OK (KSWO) - In a span of about eight hours, two trains derailed in Southwest Oklahoma. Both trains were operated by Union Pacific. The first happened Monday night south of Ryan in Jefferson County. The second, happened Tuesday morning near Apache. In both cases, no one was hurt. Officials are still uncertain of what, exactly, caused the derailments.
If you drive without insurance, new technology coming to Oklahoma will make it easier for law enforcement to catch and ticket you. License plate scanners that can read the plates of every passing car will soon be put up on interstates and highways across Oklahoma. If you drive past one of those scanners and don't have insurance, the system will take note of that and within a few weeks, you'll have a $184 ticket show up in the mail.
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".
