Governor of Oklahoma
The governor of the State of Oklahoma is the head of state for the U. S. state of Oklahoma. Under the Oklahoma Constitution, the governor is the head of government, serving as the chief executive of the Oklahoma executive branch, of the government of Oklahoma; the governor is the ex officio Commander-in-Chief of the Oklahoma National Guard when not called into federal use. Despite being an executive branch official, the governor holds legislative and judicial powers; the governor's responsibilities include making yearly "State of the State" addresses to the Oklahoma Legislature, submitting the annual state budget, ensuring that state laws are enforced, that the peace is preserved. The governor's term is four years in length; the office was created in 1907 when Oklahoma was admitted to the United States as the 46th state. Prior to statehood in 1907, the office was preceded by a Presidential appointed Governor of Oklahoma Territory with similar powers; the 28th and current Governor of Oklahoma is Republican Kevin Stitt.
Before statehood in 1907, modern day Oklahoma was composed of Indian territories. While Indian Territory was semi-independent of the federal government as Indian nations land, Oklahoma Territory was an organized territory under the supervision of the United States Congress. Within the Oklahoma Territory, a tripartite government existed, including a territorial legislature, a territorial supreme court, a territorial governor; the President of the United States appointed territorial governors to four-year terms. Despite a set term, the governor served at the pleasure of the U. S. president, meaning was up. The governor was the head of the territorial government, he had the power to veto legislation proposed by the territorial legislature and the power to appoint members to his cabinet, who in turn had to be ratified by territorial lawmakers. The governor had the power to appoint justices to the territorial high court; the governor was responsible to the U. S. president on addressing issues in the territory and served as the representative as the federal government of the United States.
He was the Commander in Chief of the territorial militia. George Washington Steele served as the first governor of Oklahoma Territory, he vetoed the territorial legislature's attempts to move the state capital from Guthrie to Oklahoma City or Kingfisher. He was instrumental in the establishment of two universities that would become the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University. After only seventeen months in office, Steele resigned effective October 18, 1891. In his place, President Benjamin Harrison appointed Abraham Jefferson Seay to the governorship. Robert Martin, Secretary of Oklahoma Territory, served as acting governor from October 18, 1891, until February 1892, when Seay took the oath of office. Frank Frantz served as the final governor of Oklahoma Territory, he was an unsuccessful candidate for governor in the first state gubernatorial election. After the Oklahoma Constitution was written and accepted in 1907, the Oklahoma and Indian territories joined to form the U. S. state of Oklahoma.
The office of the governor of Oklahoma replaced the office of territorial governor. The new office was similar, but designed with new restrictions and legislative and judicial oversight, it was crafted as a "weak governor system" to defend the state against abuses of power that had occurred under the territorial government. Oklahoma's first governor, Charles N. Haskell, wielded executive power but in the first 20 years after he left office in 1911, the Oklahoma Legislature further limited the governor's office of its powers and impeached governors John C. Walton and Henry S. Johnston, it was. In 1927, the state legislature appropriated $75,000 for the construction of a governor's mansion and $25,000 for furnishings. In 1928, the governor and his family moved in; as Oklahoma grew and the state government expanded, the office of the governor became more powerful. As more agencies were introduced, the governor gained greater indirect influence through the power of appointment; the governor was not eligible to succeed himself.
It was not until 1966 that Oklahoma amended the state constitution to allow the governor to serve two consecutive terms. The governor of Oklahoma is elected directly by the voters of Oklahoma during gubernatorial elections held in November during the final year of each four-year gubernatorial term; the candidate with the highest number of votes becomes governor following the election. The Oklahoma Constitution requires the Oklahoma Legislature to choose the governor in the case of a tie vote. Section Three of Article VI of the Oklahoma Constitution establishes that gubernatorial candidates must be citizens of the United States, at least 31 years old, residents of Oklahoma for at least ten years prior to their candidacy. Under Section Four in Article VI of the Oklahoma Constitution, the governor serves a four-year term in office beginning on the second Monday in January. Section Four states that no person may hold the office for more than two consecutive terms. On November 2, 2010, voters passed a ballot initiative to limit governors to only eight years in office in a lifetime.
The initiative set the gubernatorial term of a lieutenant governor who becomes governor upon the death of the previous governor. "I......... Do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of Oklahoma, that I will not, receive, directly or i
Francis Anthony "Frank" Keating II is an American attorney and politician who served as the 25th governor of Oklahoma from 1995 to 2003. As of 2014, Keating is one of only four governors in Oklahoma history, in addition to George Nigh, Brad Henry and Mary Fallin, to hold consecutive terms and the first Republican to accomplish that feat; as governor, he oversaw the state's response to the Oklahoma City bombing. His term was marked by the enactment of welfare reform and tax cuts. Keating was born on February 10, 1944, in St. Louis, the son of Mary Ann and Anthony Francis Keating, he was born David Rowland Keating, but his name was changed to Francis Anthony Keating II when he was two. Before he was six months old, his family settled in Tulsa. A practicing Roman Catholic, Keating attended Cascia Hall Preparatory School in Tulsa, graduating in 1962. Keating attended Georgetown University in Washington, D. C. where he was president of the college student body and an editor of The Hoya, receiving his Bachelor of Arts in history, in 1966.
He obtained a J. D. from the University of Oklahoma College of Law, in 1969, where he was student body president. Upon receiving his law degree, Keating began his career in law enforcement; the same year he finished law school, Keating was made a Special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Relocated to the West Coast, Keating was charged with investigating terrorism incidents in the area and other various duties. After years on the coast, Keating returned to Tulsa to become an assistant district attorney. In 1973, was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives, he would serve a single term until 1975, when he was elected to the Oklahoma Senate. He would serve in the Senate from 1975 until 1981. While in the Senate, Keating became the minority leader. Keating's law enforcement career and prominence in the Oklahoma Republican Party prompted newly elected President Ronald Reagan to appoint Keating as the U. S. Attorney for the Northern District of Oklahoma. Keating served from 1981 until 1983, serving for part of that time as chairman of all U.
S. Attorneys, he gave up that post in 1983 to run for Congress in Oklahoma's 1st congressional district and nearly defeated House Budget Committee chairman James R. Jones, holding him to only 52 percent of the vote as Reagan carried the district. Shortly after Reagan was sworn in for his second term, he appointed Keating to serve as an assistant secretary of the Treasury and elevated him to associate attorney general, the third ranking official within the U. S. Department of Justice; these appointments made Keating the highest ranking Oklahoman during the Reagan administration. In his positions as assistant secretary of the Treasury and associate attorney general, Keating oversaw both the Justice and Treasury's law enforcement agencies; these included the United States Customs Service, the Bureau of Alcohol and Firearms, the Secret Service, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the U. S. Marshals, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, all 94 U. S. Attorneys and the U.
S. role in Interpol. Late in the Reagan Administration, Keating continued to serve in the Justice Department in his role as associate attorney general. In 1990, President Bush elevated Keating to general counsel and acting deputy secretary of Housing and Urban Development, that department's second highest office, under Secretary Jack Kemp, he would serve as deputy secretary until 1993. As was the case in the Reagan administration, Keating became the highest ranking Oklahoman in the federal government, under Bush. On November 14, 1991, Bush nominated Keating to a seat on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, but with Democratic control of the U. S. Senate Judiciary Committee, Keating's nomination languished and no hearing was held before Bush's presidency ended. President Bill Clinton chose not to renominate Keating, instead nominating former Oklahoma Attorney General Robert Harlan Henry, subsequently confirmed. After two years of private life, in 1994, Keating received the Republican nomination for Governor of Oklahoma.
In a three-way race against Democratic nominee Jack Mildren and independent Wes Watkins, Keating was elected with just under 47 percent of the vote. He was undoubtedly helped by the presence of Watkins, a former Democratic Congressman, on the ballot. Keating was sworn in as the 25th Governor of Oklahoma on January 9, 1995. Keating faced Democratic nominee Laura Boyd, the first woman to receive a major party's nomination for Oklahoma Governor, in his 1998 re-election campaign. Keating won in a landslide victory, the second of four Governors in Oklahoma history to win two consecutive terms and preceding Democrat Brad Henry, he was the only Republican to do so before Mary Fallin in 2014. Within three months of taking office, on April 19, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was destroyed in the Oklahoma City bombing, in which the lives of 168 people were lost and over 800 people were injured; the blast destroyed or damaged more than 300 buildings in the surrounding area, leaving several hundred people homeless and shutting down business.
Governor Keating mobilized rescue teams to handle the crisis. Over 12,000 people participated in rescue operations in the days following the blast; the national and worldwide humanitarian response was overwhelming. Governor Keating declared a state of emergency, which allowed the Federal Emergency Management Agency to activate 11 of its Urban Search and Rescue Task Forces to

FIRST Robotics Competition
The FIRST Robotics Competition is an international high school robotics competition. Each year, teams of high school students and mentors work during a six-week period to build game-playing robots that weigh up to 125 pounds. Robots complete tasks such as scoring balls into goals, flying discs into goals, inner tubes onto racks, hanging on bars, balancing robots on balance beams; the game, along with the required set of tasks, changes annually. While teams are given a standard set of parts, they are allowed a budget and are encouraged to buy or make specialized parts; the FIRST Robotics Competition is one of four robotics competition programs organized by FIRST, the other three being FIRST Lego League Jr. FIRST Lego League, the FIRST Tech Challenge. FIRST Robotics Competition has a unique culture, built around two values. "Gracious Professionalism" embraces the competition inherent in the program, but rejects trash talk and chest-thumping, instead embracing empathy and respect for other teams.
"Coopertition" emphasizes that teams can compete at the same time. The goal of the program is to inspire students to be technology leaders. 2018 was the 29th year of the competition. 3,647 teams with more than 91,000 students and 25,000 mentors from 27 countries built robots. They competed in 63 Regional Competitions, 85 District Qualifying Competitions, 10 District Championships. Over 800 teams won slots to attend the two FIRST Championship events, where they competed in a tournament. In addition to on-field competition and team members competed for awards recognizing entrepreneurship, engineering, industrial design, controls, media and exemplifying the core values of the program. Most teams reside in the United States, with Canada, Mexico, Israel and Australia contributing significant numbers of teams. FIRST was founded in 1989 by inventor and entrepreneur Dean Kamen, with inspiration and assistance from physicist and MIT professor emeritus Woodie Flowers. Kamen was disappointed with the number of kids—particularly women and minorities—who did not consider science and technology careers, decided to do something about it.
As an inventor, he looked for activities that captured the enthusiasm of students, decided that combining the excitement of sports competition with science and technology had potential. Distilling what sports had done right into a recipe for engaging young people, Kamen says, turned out to be straightforward. "It's after school, not in school. It's aspirational, not required," he explained to me. "You don't get quizzes and tests, you get trophies and letters. You don't have teachers, you have coaches. You nurture, you don't judge. You create teamwork between all the participants. We justify sports for teamwork but why, when we do it in the classroom, do we call it cheating?" Most of all, it was a nonjudgmental space, where in contrast science and math in traditional educational settings had been soured with embarrassment and uncertainty. Kamen has stated that FIRST is the invention he feels most proud of, predicts that participants will be responsible for significant technological advances in years to come.
The first FIRST Robotics Competition season was in 1992 and had one event at a high school gymnasium in New Hampshire. That first competition was small-scale, similar in size to today's FIRST Tech Challenge and Vex Robotics Competition games. Robots relied on a wired connection to receive data from drivers. 3,647 teams from 28 countries competed in 2018 Power Up. Of these, 3,171 are "veteran teams", 476 are "rookie teams"; the countries represented are listed below: United States of America Canada China Mexico Israel Turkey Australia Brazil Chinese Taipei Netherlands Chile Dominican Republic United Kingdom Colombia France India Japan Croatia Czech Republic Ethiopia Germany Hong Kong Norway Paraguay Poland Singapore Sweden Switzerland Ukraine Vietnam The FIRST Championship is the culmination of the FIRST Robotics Competition competition season, occurs in late April each year. 800 teams participated in two Championship events in 2018, held in April in Houston and Detroit, Michigan. The PBS documentary "Gearing Up" followed four teams through the 2008 season.
In the television series Dean of Invention, Dean Kamen made appeals promoting FIRST prior to commercial breaks. During the 2010 FIRST Robotics Competition season, FIRST team 3132, Thunder Down Under, was followed by a Macquarie University student film crew to document the first year of FIRST Robotics Competition in Australia; the crew produced a documentary film called Wombot. The film premiered during the 2011 Dungog Film Festival. A book called The New Cool was written by Neal Bascomb about the story of Team 1717 from Goleta, California as they competed in the 2009 game season. A movie adaptation directed by Michael Bacall is being produced; the CNN documentary "Don't Fail Me: Education in America", which aired on May 15, 2011, followed three FIRST Robotics Competition teams during the 2011 season. The documentary profiled one student from each team, covering different geographic and socioeconomic levels: Shaan Patel from Team 1403 Cougar Robotics, Maria Castro from Team 842 Falcon Robotics, Brian Whited from Team 3675 Eagletrons.
On August 14, 2011, ABC aired a special on FIRST called "i.am FIRST: Science is Rock and Roll" that featured many famous musical artist
