Scoop Advisory: Key Word Based Filtering Now Here

Scoop’s commercial Newsagent service has undergone a major upgrade implementing a new approach to the news filter interface which has been requested by many clients over the past few months.

It is now possible for subscribers to Scoop Newsagent to specify key words which will then be used to scan Scoop material as it is published. All material that matches the defined key words (each user can set three different filters) will be e-mailed immediately to the user.

Existing customers can use their existing Scoop logins to access the new service by pushing the LOGIN button in the left hand control panel on the front page. New customers should first sign-up to Newsagent – push the SUBSCRIBE button – and then after subscribing use the LOGIN button which will provide access to the new key-word filtering system.

The new service is likely to be especially useful for keeping tabs on when company and individual names appear in Scoop material – including News Monitor reports.

The new key word service is included in the basic package provided to Scoop subscribers at the all inclusive price of $100 per month including GST. It should be noted that this price is substantially lower than that charged by our closest competing service – a service which does not offer the flexibility of key word based filtering.

The latest upgrade to Scoop’s services continues the path of innovation established since Scoop was born on June 9, 1999.

Since our launch Scoop has - in addition to providing excellent ongoing coverage of New Zealand news:

Launched a sophisticated fully searchable archive of Scoop material - SCOOP GOLD;

Launched twice daily Scoop Ratings - Top 20 reports;

Launched a free twice daily email bulletin – SCOOP TODAY - which includes links to the top stories on Scoop each day. This service presently has 250 subscribers;

Added new Auckland and Australia wires to our range of content;

Implemented a highly popular and successful sponsored page focussing on the APEC conference and East Timor Crisis.

Scoop intends to continue innovating in pursuit of its mission of providing professional information tools of excellence for both information professionals and all those with a serious interest in the news.

Binoy Kampmark: A Looting Matter: Cambodia’s Stolen Antiquities

Cambodia has often featured in the Western imagination as a place of plunder and pilfering. Temples and artefacts of exquisite beauty have exercised the interest of adventurers and buccaneers who looted with almost kleptocratic tendency.

Dunne Speaks: Labour Leadership Speculation Premature And Facile
Speculation that the Prime Minister’s leadership of the Labour Party may be at risk because of this week’s adverse poll results is as exaggerated as it is premature and facile. While her popularity has plummeted from the artificially stellar heights of a couple of years ago and is probably set to fall further to what would be a more realistic assessment... More>>




Ian Powell: Colossal ‘Porkies’ And Band-aids Don’t Make A Health Workforce Plan

On 1 August Minister of Health Andrew Little announced what he described as the start of a plan for the beleaguered workforce in Aotearoa New Zealand’s health system: Government’s 5 year late health workforce announcement.

Binoy Kampmark: The Fuss About Monkeypox
The World Health Organization has been one of the easier bodies to abuse. For parochial types, populist moaners and critics of international institutions, the WHO bore the brunt of criticisms from Donald Trump to Jair Bolsonaro. Being a key institution in identifying public health risks, it took time assessing the threat posed by SARS-CoV-2 and its disease, COVID-19... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Time For MPs To Think For Themselves
One of the more frequently quoted statements of the Irish statesman and philosopher, Edmund Burke, was his observation that “Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgement, and he betrays instead of serving you if he sacrifices it to your opinion.”... More>>
