MSA Security has the FBI at its back for identifying potential explosives in packages delivered to arenas and stadiums. The New York-based security consultant, in addition to supplying canine bomb detection services for about 40 percent of NFL teams, owns a system called SmartTech, which provides direct communication between a sports facility and FBI-certified bomb technicians in New York.
Dan Donovan is among the top experts for designing security infrastructure at venues. If there's a new arena or stadium in development, the former Mankato State offensive lineman and his firm, Guidepost Solutions, are most likely consulting on the project. Donovan serves as vice president of security and technology consulting for the New York-based company, which has the Bucks, Warriors, Falcons and Braves among its current clients. All of the teams recently opened new venues or are building them.
The skies are getting crowded with drones, and the threat of strapping weapons to those flying machines has teams searching for defense mechanisms to protect their facilities. Dedrone, one company addressing the issue, supplies technology to detect unauthorized drones and identify the pilots. The firm has two sports clients. One is the New York Mets, who use Dedrone's system to conduct aerial surveillance around Citi Field.
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".
