I recently hosted a few ladies for a causal dinner party on a muggy Friday night and basically served dip for dinner. How'd I get away with it? By serving something that turns way fancier: A classic French dish called le grand aïoli: homemade aïoli (aka garlicky mayonnaise) surrounded by a spread of fresh and cooked veggies, bread, and boiled shrimp and eggs.
Finding Father's Day gift ideas is a flat-out nightmare. Dads never appear to want or need anything, never articulate what they want, and in many cases are straight-up antagonistic about the idea of receiving something that they "don't need." But we're going to get our dads some gifts for Father's Day anyway. Usually, it will be a cooking-related gift, because a lot of dads are into gadgets and "doing stuff." Besides, everyone has to eat, right?
If your dad is anything like mine, he wants a steak for Father’s Day. How convenient then that the holiday during which we collectively celebrate our respective patriarchs falls right when grilling season is revving up. But just because Dad’s dining proclivities are predictable doesn’t mean dinner has to be dull. Instead of serving up the same old filet, this year throw something new on the grill. Like this Australian take on brisket, with a spicy dry rub that perfumes the meat with tons of flavor.
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".
