Two rape complaints by young girls living at the same state-run home shows the urgent need for an independent watchdog to protect the interests of children in care, the Children's Commissioner says. Police confirmed they have an active investigation into the report a 12-year-old girl was sexual assaulted by two teenage boys while she lived at the home.
Choosing between paying the rent and putting food on the table is life for many sole parents reliant on a benefit. Following Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei's admission she lied to Work and Income while on the domestic purposes benefit, some sole parents have spoken out about their struggles to make ends meet. For nearly two years, Wellingtonian Juliet, 31, and her daughter, who's two-and-a-half, have been subsisting on the sole parent benefit, plus whatever work she can fit in.
How many of you after getting a new drug from your physician immediately go on the internet to look it up? I’d wager a good 80 percent do this. The internet plays a major role, good or bad, in educating us on disease treatment and maintaining wellness. Physicians order drugs with very specific instructions, some may not be on the handouts you get from the pharmacy because your physician has more knowledge about your specific condition. I trust my physicians to know everything about pharmaceuticals.
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".
