Oil prices have recovered from the lows of 2015, but there is a reason to believe 2018 could bring another steep collapse in the price. US oil production is expected to continue to rise – and may even accelerate in the new year. At the same time, there is some temporary stability in the Middle East, which reduces the risk of production and supply issues. The final price lies firmly in the hands of OPEC, and whether they agree to maintain production caps.
Nigel Murray, whose spending as Waikato DHB boss is being investigated, previously led a Canadian health authority also investigated over spending and overcrowding. Dr Murray spent $218,000 in three years at Waikato DHB on travel and expenses before resigning in early October. The man who hired him, DHB chair Bob Simcock, told RNZ Health Correspondent Karen Brown this week that concerns raised about Dr Murray's potential appointment had been assuaged by the referees he had given them.
A key principle of humanitarianism is that “human suffering must be addressed wherever it is found” and particular attention paid to the most vulnerable. The principle that the “dignity and rights of all victims must be respected and protected” is reflected in the 1951 Refugee Convention and in the European Qualification Directive – both of which the UK has signed. There is a clear responsibility on all countries towards those affected and displaced by conflict, war and terror.
@kaupapa@CheckpointRNZ Thanks, Sacha. They honoured themselves, didn't they? It's amazing to be in the company of people like that. To quote @NeilFinn - "Praise will come to those whose kindness leaves you without debt."
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".
