The satirical magazine Private Eye is famous for the waspish speech-bubble jokes on its covers. Its latest is the equivalent of scoring an open goal. There's a picture of the England team getting ready to fly off to the European Football Championships in France, with one of them saying, "We'll be out of Europe in time".

Hello, my name's Ros, I'm a BBC radio presenter and I've just been to Mexico City. I'm assured that reading this article won't infect you. I flew out last Saturday morning, stayed for three days and in one week have gone from being blissfully unaware that pigs come down with flu, to being a swine flu veteran and social pariah.
The first thing I do on a day that I'm doing the news is put on clothes I'd rarely wear otherwise. To be clear, I'm sure many of my TV presenter colleagues are really smart all the time, but I'm definitely not in that category I'm afraid.
The BBC has a report out called The Future of News. The authors are some of my most talented colleagues, and their work is as comprehensive and well-thought through as it is blunt in its assessment of how far and fast our industry needs to change.
Ros Atkins presents Outside Source on BBC World Service Most of my work in the past few years has been taken up with presenting and developing World Have Your Say (WHYS) on TV and radio, and working on the revamped afternoon bulletins on BBC World News TV.
This innovative new show will link the BBC's global network of journalists with a worldwide audience using the latest in broadcast technology. Broadcasting live from the BBC's new state-of-the-art newsroom in the redeveloped Broadcasting House, London, the programme is launching initially on World Service Radio.
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
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".
