BMW supplier Roy Metal Finishing has expanded its investment in Greenville County to the tune of $60 million. The amendment to the tax agreement, which had been in place since 2012 when the company was building a new corrosion-resistant coating plant at what is now Augusta Grove industrial park, was accepted Tuesday by County Council. The investment in 2012 was $13 million. Greenville-based John Pazdan, RMF's president and CEO, said the investment will include jobs for additional associates.
The total solar eclipse that brought more than one million travelers to the state of South Carolina left an additional $269 million at the Palmetto State's door. Of the 1.6 million travelers who traveled to or within the state, most caught the eclipse in the Greenville, Charleston and Columbia areas. The economic impact across the state totaled an estimated $269 million, left from hotel bookings and travel expenditures.
Economics is one of the key problems within Greenville's black community, according to Roderick G. White, a managing partner at New York Life Insurance. "The elevation of our community’s financial IQ is critical to our survival," said White, the first black managing partner at New York Life in the greater Greenville office in 176 years. Several years ago, White, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, analyzed his own spending at black-owned businesses. It was only 3 percent.
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".
