Boeing plans to make the first involuntary layoffs at its North Charleston campus since operations began there in 2011, according to a company memo. Fewer than 200 employees will receive involuntary layoff notices on Friday, the memo said. “This is a first for BSC (Boeing South Carolina),” Joan Robinson-Berry, vice president and general manager of Boeing South Carolina, said in the memo.
Early stage technology companies have few venture capital funding options in South Carolina. “We call it a capital desert,” said Amy Salzhauer, an entrepreneur and former CEO of Boston-based Ignition Ventures. South Carolina has long struggled to offer enough early and later-stage funding for startups, spurring entrepreneurs to pitch in other tech hubs, including Silicon Valley, Boston and New York.
A $1 billion mixed-use project planned for the Upper Peninsula that had been dubbed “a relief valve” for downtown Charleston is now dead. North American Properties, an Ohio-based real estate company, had planned to develop 160 acres of waterfront property — sitting north of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge near Morrison Drive — into a large development. The 10-year buildout was expected to transform Laurel Island into a large-scale project named Lorelei, developers announced in 2016.
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".
