Counting indirect jobs -- such as companies that supply parts or services to the exporters -- the employment total swells to 87,400. St. Louis is the 20th-biggest U.S. metro area for exports based on dollar value and No. 24 based on direct jobs. Not surprisingly, the aircraft industry is St. Louis' export leader. It accounts for 16 percent of the value of goods and services shipped overseas last year, and for 5,400 export-supported jobs.
If your eyes feel funny after watching the solar eclipse even though you wore protective glasses, don't panic.You may have gotten superficial damage on the surface of the eyes, but the not the irreversible retina burns that prompted so many warnings prior to the celestial event viewed by millions.

Helio Castroneves had packed his bags and was planning to return to his home in Brazil during the winter of 1999.His previous open-wheel racing team in CART had gone out of business, and the 23-year-old had not received interest from anyone until getting a call from Carl Hogan, who had just released driver JJ Lehto.That call re-ignited Castroneves’ career, providing what turned out to be a one-year opportunity with St. Louis-based Hogan Racing.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
