After seven years as the queen of bingo, Barbara Windsor is finally giving up the "blue balls" innuendo and passing the crown on to Paddy McGuinness. The longevity of this campaign suggests its popularity and success but there’s something not quite right about McGuinness encouraging the 80-year-old Windsor to rip off her dress in his front room.

Depending on who you believe the problem is down to a shortage of pilots who were leaving to join other airlines or poor planning by Ryanair. But either way, it has undone some of the progress made by chief executive Michael O’Leary who promised in 2013 that Ryanair would stop "unnecessarily pissing people off". O’Leary promised that those affected, who make up 2% of its total travellers over the period, will be offered alternative flights or offered compensation.
Plums are the tribbles of the fruit world, so abundant are they. How could one ever forget the scene in Star Trek when Captain Kirk almost smiled – “Cute!” – as the USS Enterprise was overrun by these fuzzy little things. Delightful in every way, plums have the same extraordinary ability to appear in such vast amounts that it is overwhelming. I find that a reasonably straightforward way to chart a course through the sea of plums is to choose a green one.
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".
