It doesn't take much to show your appreciation. Photo: iStock/ stockstudioxGreat Father’s Day gifts don’t have to cost three digits. Case in point: the following gear. The Dope is just big enough to carry all your dad's grooming essentials on the road. It also works just as well for fishing gear. Butter is great for cooking. But you know what’s even better? Pure animal fat.
To fill the void of lift-served bike parks in the southern Appalachians, Bailey Mountain Bike Park shuttles riders for $35 to the top of a private peak outside Asheville. From there you can bomb through roller-coaster berms or try black-diamond trails with sizable gap jumps. The Banshee, a crazy run with rock drops, kickers, and tabletops, is probably our favorite. With 1,000 vertical feet and a daily cap of 65 bikers, traffic is nil.
Get dad something good this year, he deserves it. Photo: Stocksy/ Kate DaigneultDads fish, and camp, and drink beer and whiskey. Dads ride bikes, summit peaks, and cook a mean salt and pepper steak. Dads do things, so we've designed a Father’s Day gift guide that will help your dad do what he loves more often.
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".
