DuPont's sales increased, but its overall profit dropped in the second quarter of 2017, its last as an independent company. The Wilmington-based chemical and agriculture company reported a profit of $862 million, or 99 cents per share, for the period between April 1 and June 30 2017. That is a 15.5 percent drop from the $1 billion it earned during the same quarter last year. But there was plenty of good news for DuPont.
When Ann Keller and her family relocated to Wilmington from Houston more than three years ago, they scoured area neighborhoods looking for the best fit. One afternoon, while driving through the Brandywine Hundred neighborhood, Keller and her husband passed the DuPont Country Club and knew they had found their home. "It was a big draw," Keller said. "The country club just looked so pretty as we drove through here."
A Sallie Mae executive said the $2.16 million taxpayer grant it has requested from the state will be used to hire Barclays and HSBC workers who will be laid off over the next two years. "This is good for us and good for Delaware that we can help these displaced workers," said Larry Zepp, director of facilities and operations at Sallie Mae.
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".
