Fort Myers-based NeoGenomics Inc. said today it had a net loss for its second quarter but also record revenue. The cancer genetics testing company lost $43,000 in the quarter, or 3 cents a share, compared with a profit of $413,000 in the second quarter of 2016. Revenue was $66.1 million, an increase of 5 percent over the prior year's second quarter. Part of that came from a 16 percent increase in the volume of clinical genetic tests.
Coastal counties in Southwest Florida added 5,100 jobs over the past year, which helped push unemployment rates down. Lee County’s jobless rate was 3.7 percent, down from 4.0 percent the previous month and 4.2 a year ago. During the Great Recession, Lee topped out at 13.3 percent unemployment. Collier’s unemployment rate dropped to 3.6 percent in April from 4.0 in March and 4.1 percent a year ago. Charlotte County posted a 4.3 percent unemployment rate for April, down from 4.7 in March.
It was always about the money. Lee County approved giving $5 million to VR Laboratories in 2011, while in the grip of the Great Recession, because it wanted to add jobs to the reeling economy. It was about the money when contractors who weren’t being paid for work on the VR Labs pilot plant started complaining to county officials. It was about the money when a string of lawsuits emerged and county officials called in the FBI and the state attorney’s office.
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".
