Twenty people showed up to view a Hamilton rental listed by Lugton's the other day. That was in Rototuna, but rentals are scarce across the city. Hamilton agencies have fewer rentals available than usual and managers warn rent rises could be coming. Lugton's Real Estate had five rentals on its books on Thursday out of a portfolio of 400.
WEL Energy Trust is betraying the community by dropping a longstanding power discount, a former chairman says. Russ Rimmington, who served on the trust's board from 1996 to 2002, said scrapping the discount for a "hare-brained" technology project went against WEL Energy Trust's purpose. WEL Networks, owned by the trust, intends to cut a $14 million discount to Waikato residents in 2019 - increasing power bills by $7 a month. However, WEL Networks will drop line prices by $7 million a year in 2018.
WEL Networks is dropping a discount program which will increase power bills by $7 a month. The Waikato energy infrastructure company intends to cut the discount in 2019, and in place reduce line prices from 2018. WEL Network's owning trust, WEL Energy Trust, says the move is essential for it to disrupt the regional power market. WEL Energy Trust chairman Mark Ingle said removing a now irrelevant annual discount was part of a greater plan to reduce prices.
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".
