Remembering the deadliest day for police since 9/11. I’m not sure if you know this or not, but the majority of the Security Today team is based out of Dallas. Me, personally, I’ve lived in Dallas for over half my life. If someone asks where “home” is, my answer is Dallas. I don’t have to tell you about how the Dallas ambush affected me, this town, our police or the security of the city, state and nation. You saw it play out on national television.
There are many things to be aware of if you are a security team in charge of maintaining public safety during an event at an arena or stadium. You have to worry about threats on the ground—abandoned bags, forbidden items, perimeter security—as well as threats in the air, including drones. Drones have become widely popular within the last few years as technology becomes more innovative, allowing for high quality images from a small flying device.
If asked, Kurt Takahashi, president of AMAG, would tell you he was brought to the security industry by “luck of the draw,” but just talking with Takahashi would make you believe he is right where he is supposed to be. Takahashi’s journey into the security industry isn’t necessarily a conventional one, as he explains it. He never thought an out-ofcollege entry level position would turn into a career.
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".
