Eight months after accusing a group of former employees of "lying, cheating and stealing" when they left for a competitor, Yadkin Bank tells the court it's reached a settlement agreement. On Nov. 20, the Raleigh bank, now owned by Pittsburgh-based F.N.B. Corporation; and the defendants, both the individuals and their new employer, George Mason Mortgage; told the court they had "reached an agreement on all material terms to resolve this matter by settlement."
Two months after a former employee accused it of gender and age discrimination in a court filing, Raleigh's Yadkin Financial and its new Pittsburgh-based parent company, FNB Corp. (NYSE: FNB), are flatly denying the allegations. The bank claims its officers "repeatedly" informed Lisa Rogers, its former executive vice president and director of mortgage lending, that it wanted to retain her to manage FNB's mortgage sales in the Carolinas - contrary to what Rogers said in her July counterclaim.
Despite an active hurricane season, Raleigh-Durham International Airport is still seeing traffic headed for Caribbean destinations. That's in spite of losing its planned nonstop Allegiant Air flight to Puerto Rico. The flight, which was supposed to debut next month, was to be a big deal for RDU. When it was announced in June, San Juan was one of RDU's top three unserved destinations. Two weeks ago, both Allegiant Air and RDU confirmed demand had dropped dramatically since the storm.
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".
