SINN Fein's new party leader will be Mary Lou McDonald, it has been reported. Ms McDonald's succession to the job comes after Gerry Adams last year announced he would be standing down in 2018. Sky News this morning reported that the party's deputy leader was the only candidate to succeed Gerry Adams when nominations closed this morning.

HE'S smarter than Einstein, and can solve a Rubik's cube in just 100 seconds. But if you were expecting an old man with white hair guess again - Mehul Garg is only 10-years-old. The precocious boy scored 162 - the best possible result - after taking the Mensa IQ test, placing him in the top one per cent who have taken the assessment. The so-called genius benchmark is set at 140, with Einstein and Stephen Hawking having scored 160.
A YOUTUBE star has been trolled as a "spoilt brat" after asking a hotel for a free stay - prompting them to ban all bloggers. Elle Darby had contacted hotels around Dublin, asking them about a "possible collaboration" that would allow her to stay for free while featuring them on her social media channels. But the offer backfired when the owner of the White Moose Café and Charleville Lodge Hotel in Dublin shared the young woman's email - slamming her for lacking "self-respect and dignity".
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".
