Center Jarret Stoll Joins the New York Rangers

The security director at Navillus Health, Nicholas Tagarelli enjoys ice hockey. Currently training to become a Level 1 USA ice hockey official, Nicholas Tagarelli follows the New York Rangers.

Following the 2014-2015 NHL season, L.A. Kings center Jarret Stoll became an unrestricted free agent. In August, the New York Rangers announced that it signed the athlete. The undisclosed contract potentially consisted of a one-year deal valued at $800,000, according to Sports Illustrated.

Jarret Stoll and the Kings missed the playoffs last season. However, he participated in 73 regular-season games, scoring six goals and 11 assists. In total, Stoll has played 792 games throughout his 12-year career. The 33-year-old has scored 140 goals, recorded 239 assists, and played in 93 postseason games. His achievements include two Stanley Cup wins with the Kings and a faceoff success rate of 55.4 percent. His strength in faceoff will serve the Rangers well, since the team has struggled in that area the past few years.

Steps to Counter Vulnerabilities in Airport Security Screening

Nicholas Tagarelli is presently the security director of Navillus Health. Nicholas Tagarelli also served for a long time with the New Jersey Police Department and the Port Authority of New York and has extensive experience in airport security and terrorism intelligence.

Many air travelers complain about long waits at airport security checkpoints, but the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has limited options, considering renewed threats of terrorism and recent reports of shortcomings in airport screening. ABC News brought to light an inspector general's report in which unnamed officials noted that undercover agents had successfully carried mock weapons and explosives through TSA checkpoints in 67 out of 70 attempts. These vulnerabilities were identified by the Red Team, which has played a major role in assessing the effectiveness of screening at airports throughout the United States.

In response, the Department of Homeland Security announced in June 2015 that efforts were being taken to reduce such vulnerabilities through intensive training and coordinated equipment checks. In addition, random covert testing will be introduced as a way of ensuring that security practices are being consistently followed.
