Dublin is said to be demanding that the UK preserve about 100 EU regulations to ensure an open trade border with Northern Ireland. PAUL FAITH/GETTY IMAGESIreland is demanding that the UK remain part of the customs union after Brexit to avoid a hard border, it was reported last night. Dublin’s new demands threaten the prospect of the UK’s talks with the EU 27 moving on to the next phase in December to discuss potential Brexit trade and transition terms.
Named after the frigate HMS Penelope, the new international development secretary Penny Mordaunt is a navy reservist and the daughter of a former paratrooper. Given her military credentials and her past experience as armed forces minister, she was tipped for the defence secretary role after Sir Michael Fallon’s departure from the cabinet last week. Some may see her promotion today as a consolation prize.
Russia is suspected of spreading disinformation in Kenya by suggesting that the UK has been interfering in the African country’s elections.

Lord Heseltine brands budget measures "sticking plasters". Interesting dichotomy: Tory MPs have been talking the budget up, grateful it hasn't unravelled, but party grandees less willing to shift focus from big picture, bleak economic forecasts.

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".
