This week on Inside the Headset, we are featuring the University of Louisiana Monroe's running backs coach Tony Hull. In this episode, Coach Hull talks about coaching in his home state, transitioning from working as an engineer at NASA to coaching, and shares how he puts players in a position to be successful. Tony Hull, one of the most respected coaches in the state of Louisiana, is entering his second season at The University of Louisiana Monroe and his first season as the team's running backs coach. Hulls first year with the Warhawks he served as the outside receivers coach. Hull returned home to Louisiana after serving for four years as the associate head coach and running backs coach at Kansas (2016-19) and as the co-offensive coordinator and inside receivers coach at Hawai'i in 2020. From New Orleans, Louisiana, Hull coached Pooka Williams Jr., now with the Cincinnati Bengals, to consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons in 2018 and 2019, a feat accomplished only once before in Kansas football history. Hull joined the collegiate coaching ranks after a distinguished coaching career in the Louisiana high school ranks. In nine seasons as the head coach and offensive coordinator of Warren Easton High School in New Orleans, Hull led the stagnant program into a contender. He arrived at Warren Easton in 2007, the school's first season playing football following Hurricane Katrina, and guided the Eagles to playoffs in seven of his nine seasons. His resume included a state championship game appearance in 2014 and a state semifinals showing in 2015. Hull developed the Eagles' players on the field as he mentored 45 players who went on to earn Division I football scholarships. Six of those players earned a nod in ESPN's Top-300 lists, while one of his athletes was named the 2014 Gatorade Player of the Year and Mr. Louisiana Football.

EWN - Engineering With Nature
Leveraging Federal Partnering to Infuse Nature into Urban Community Resilience

EWN - Engineering With Nature

Welcome to Episode 4! We're discussing the role of EWN and nature-based solutions (NBS) in addressing urban challenges to build community and regional resilience. Host Sarah Thorne is joined by new co-host, Burton Suedel, Research Biologist at the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE); Abby Hall, Senior Advisor on Local and Regional Planning, with the Office of Community Revitalization, at the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA); and Jim McPherson, Federal Coordinating Officer for Region 1, with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).   Jim has had a long career in disaster response, first with the U.S. Coast Guard, where he participated in the response to Hurricane Katrina, now a Federal Coordinating Officer with FEMA. Jim's current role is coordinating all federal agencies in a disaster, including USACE: “One of my favorite agencies to work with is the US Army Corps of Engineers because they are the nation's toolbox. They can do anything.”   Abby grew up in rural Oklahoma as a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and studied anthropology at Stanford University. Her environmental education work at the EPA focused on helping people gain more access to green space in their day-to-day lives, whether it be big city parks, urban trees, community gardens, or creek trails. This led to her focus on green infrastructure for disaster resilience: “Resilience is a community's ability to survive disasters and to be ready for the impacts of climate change, protecting public health, delivering environmental justice, preserving a culture, strengthening the local economy, for long-term success of the community overall, not just in the context of natural disasters.”   The EWN Program has a relatively new focus on urban landscapes and the environment.  As Burton notes, “EWN has funded a research task specifically looking at how EWN concepts and principles have been and could be incorporated into urban settings and landscapes. There are multiple challenges at the urban level. We're thinking about managing flood and storm risk. We want to improve the ecosystem functions associated with community infrastructure. And we also want to improve the water quality and flood protection in these areas and by so doing, improve the public health and social benefits.”   The focus of EPA's Greening America's Communities Program is similar. Abby says, “It's one of my favorite things I get to work on at EPA. It's a design assistance program for communities where EPA and a team of landscape architects and urban designers come to a community and hold workshops with a range of local perspectives to put together a vision for what green infrastructure solutions should literally look like. We're talking to the school kids who need a green street to walk from home to school. We're talking to the farmers who need a space in town to create a farmers' market. We're really bringing together different perspectives to design that green infrastructure and people love the approach because it's fun, it's engaging and it's visual. Whether it's a city or a tribal community, they can use the pictures created to fundraise and actually get their designs built.”   The EPA, working with FEMA and a regional land use agency in the San Francisco Bay area, developed the Regional Resilience Toolkit to help regions and communities to become more resilient. It presents a 5-step process to bring together government and non-government regional partners to produce the top priorities for resilience investments across a region to plan, fund and build large-scale green infrastructure. The process meets FEMA's requirements for its hazard mitigation planning program, which means the priority action is eligible for FEMA funding.  And as Burton notes, “The Toolkit is a really good enabler, not only for the EPA, but as a way to collaborate with USACE and others looking for increased inter-agency collaboration, and perhaps for conducting pilot projects and other projects going forward.”   Jim emphasizes the importance of these approaches being actionable. “It's very important that we do these studies, but it's more important that we have an action plan. FEMA is really results-driven. We're action-orientated we don't just want to pass information.” As an example, Jim describes a coordinated response to homelessness in Hartford, Connecticut: “FEMA was putting everybody into a hotel during COVID, but people weren't getting any services, they were basically just housed. Then we got together with fed, states, locals, our USACE Lead Field Coordinator, and she starts looking at all the types of things that we could bring into this hotel -- organic gardening, vertical gardening, having residents compost leftover food from local restaurants, putting solar panels on the roof and having some who are formerly homeless people get training. Now we're using all the wraparound services from the federal, state, and local governments. When we talk about vulnerable populations, there has to be a solution. It can't just be identifying that we have a housing, a homeless situation. What am I going to do about it?”   Taking a holistic approach to building community resilience is a key theme of this episode.  Abby comments that, “EPA's Equitable Resilience Assistance Program reflects a priority across the federal government to look at how equitable our programs and funding are. We're working with states and tribes, focusing on large funding streams, starting at federal sources and flowing through states and tribal governments, and how can those be more thoughtfully distributed.”     As the episode wraps up, Burton emphasizes the growing need to renew existing infrastructure, relating how the concrete and steel structures constructed over the past 100 years must be modified, repaired, or replaced. “When we replace this infrastructure, we need to think about ways we can increase the value associated with it, going beyond intended engineering objectives, to include environmental, social, and economic benefits. One of the best ways to do that is to incorporate nature-based solutions into these projects to provide greater benefits.”      Collaborating with agency partners to bring a full slate of expertise and resources to address multiple challenges at the community level is really the key to building resilience.   Related Links EWN Website ERDC Website Burton Suedel at LinkedIn Burton Suedel at EWN   Abby Hall at LinkedIn Smart Growth at EPA EPA Community Revitalization on Facebook EPA's Greening America's Communities Program Reports from Greening America's Communities Projects Greening America's Capitals – Little Rock, Arkansas EPA's Regional Resilience Toolkit MMSD 2019 Resilience Plan - A Blueprint for the Future EPA's Equitable Resilience Assistance Program   Jim McPherson at LinkedIn FEMA Region 1 Hurricane Katrina Hartford Courant – Former hotel in Hartford's South Meadows to become new emergency shelter for men

Data entry may seem boring, but you never know the story behind the information being entered and the patterns that emerge. Some data has distinctive characteristics that point towards fraudulent activities. Today's guest is Leah Wietholter. Leah is the CEO and founder of Workman Forensics as well as the host of the Investigation Game Podcast. After working for the FBI, she has served as the Senior Certified Fraud Examiner in Tulsa and she currently volunteers as a treasurer for the Tulsa Crime Stoppers. With over 15 years of experience and more than 100 cases worked, Leah has honed her industry expertise to create the Data Sleuth Process, a scalable data-first approach to forensic accounting engagement and fraud investigations.  Show Notes: [1:03] - Welcome to the show, Leah! Leah shares her background and current role as founder of Workman Forensics. [2:08] - What sets Workman Forensics apart is their creative team and Investigation Games. [4:26] - Forensics accounting started becoming more common, but Leah shares how she became a part of the FBI accounting team. [6:13] - While in the FBI, she was heavily involved in data entry and also testified for grandy jury after Hurricane Katrina. [7:58] - Many times, fraud is determined simply by entering data and seeing patterns. [9:25] - Leah explains a tool developed by Workman Forensics to see anomalies within data that indicate fraud. [11:41] - By building up from this information, categories for fraud risk can easily be seen. [13:18] - Business owners need to know what money enters the business, what form of payment, who touches the money, and what money leaves the business. [14:29] - Pay close attention to your payroll reports. [16:04] - You need to also know what is normal for your business, then always look for things that look off. [17:31] - Chris shares an unusual statement he received and why it looked odd. [19:08] - People committing embezzlement typically pay themselves in even dollar amounts. [20:57] - Indicators allow investigators a more defined set of data to look at more closely. [22:46] - If the person in charge of your bookkeeping isn't reconciling, you have a problem. Leah explains what reconciling is. [24:57] - You don't always know how much money you have if you aren't reconciling. [25:56] - Most scams have a lifespan of 18 months, but in these types of financial fraud cases, Leah says they last several years. [26:58] - When it comes to financial fraud, Leah says it can't always be prevented but it is important to detect it quickly. [28:21] - When money comes into your business, a certain amount is already called for. The money stolen is the profit. [30:11] - You can limit access to accounts through your bank. [32:14] - Leah shares the story of the craziest case she worked on. [36:12] - In this case, someone was using their own legitimate business to launder money through fake vendors. [37:25] - Many people think that if a large sum is stolen that the money can be found somewhere, but in most cases, it has been spent. [40:18] - In Tulsa, where Leah is located, there are a lot of casinos but the majority of the embezzlement cases she has worked on are by people with shopping addictions. [42:31] - One of the suspicious behaviors for high risk is being loved by management but not by others. [44:24] - The feeling of betrayal is the most emotionally charged in these events. [45:13] - As the owner, make it a process to check things every month. [46:50] - A red flag could be if bookkeepers or accountants are defensive when you want to check things.

Anoop Jain '09, founding director of Sanitation and Health Rights in India (SHRI), has always had a deep sense of social justice. As a Northwestern student he observed how the most vulnerable of New Orleans' population was disproportionality impacted by Hurricane Katrina. And later on a trip to Guatemala as part of Alternative Student Breaks, he found himself deeply impacted by working in fellowship and breaking bread with communities there. Later, after graduating Northwestern, he fundraised for the creation of a soup kitchen in the Himalayas. The culmination of these experiences resulted in Jain quitting his job, and traveling to India to work with organizers and community activists to provide direct support to underserved communities in India. During this time he realized that he was working at the intersection of social justice and public health, and that the issue of sanitation in the rural parts of India were not individual problems, but systems failures. The reframing of sanitation as a result of inadequate systems and not individual behavior was a paradigm shift that led Jain to earn his MPH and DPH so he could help implement those upstream changes. On this episode of Northwestern Intersections, Jain shares how he founded Sanitation and Health Rights in India, and how he is committed to the service of underserved communities in India. Jain tells us how the mission of SHRI, in addition to building sanitation facilities, is evolving to focus on strengthening systems and provisions to be as robust as possible in order to provide the highest quality sanitation services. He underscores the importance of marrying academic rigor and understanding of issues with the component of practice. As well as elevating the voices of the communities you serve so they can shape the questions and the research that will create the policy that impacts their quality of life.

What other additional coverage should you consider adding on to your policy that is not included, but would be available for a small fee? About Galen M. Hair Galen M.

(For show notes and a full transcript, see https://tonyloyd.com/deirdre-horan). Dri produces durable, fashionable, and environmentally sustainable umbrellas from ocean-bound plastic. As a fifteen year-old, Deirdre Horan left her comfortable home in Acton, Massachusetts to join a youth group traveling to Gulfport, Mississippi. This was two years after Hurricane Katrina, and the community continued to struggle. “What really struck me was the level of devastation that was still there two years later,” Deirdre explains. “It takes much longer than the initial relief to pick lives back up. People will always need assistance if they've been impacted. I saw at a young age that something can always be done for somebody.” Deirdre continued to travel back to Gulfport year after year. But she also thought of how she could make a greater impact. A shift in plans In 2017, Deirdre watched a documentary, Garbage Island: An Ocean Full of Plastic. In the film, Captain Charles Moore made a comment that stuck with her.  “He said something like, ‘The oceans to a degree help clean itself out. We need to address the amount that's flowing in,'” Dierdre explains. “I went down a black hole, researching recycling. I learned that plastic bottles could be upcycled into polyester. “One day I was walking to work and my umbrella flipped inside out. I was wet, discouraged, and angry. I threw the umbrella in the trash can. I checked the tag. It was made with polyester yarn. The wheels started turning. I realized that I didn't know who made any umbrella, let alone an eco-friendly umbrella.” That's when the idea came for an umbrella made from ocean-bound plastic. “I ran around telling everybody I knew about this idea. And then, I realized that I had to buckle down and do some research. One of the biggest hurdles was finding someone who could make it ethically. “I vetted multiple companies before I made my decision.” The problem The world produces 380 million tons of plastic every year. Much of that is for single-use. But what about recycling? Much of the plastic that is gathered for recycling is sent to countries with weak environmental laws and poor waste management systems. According to Deirdre Horan of Dri, over 17 billion pounds of plastic flows into the ocean every year. That's more than one garbage truck per minute. In many of these low-income countries, waste pickers will pick up ocean-bound plastic and bring it to recycling centers. That plastic is pelletized and can be spun into yarn and polyester. The solution Dri umbrellas are created from upcycled ocean-bound plastic. The handles are made from fast-growing bamboo, and the shafts are stainless steel, which is recyclable.

Episode 68 Matthew Paul TurnerWe've been hearing a LOT about deconstruction the last few years, even featuring episodes about the topic here and there on this podcast. But what comes AFTER deconstruction? The answer will of course be different for each person. Matthew Paul Turner– a forerunner of the current deconstruction movement by over a decade– has found an answer that suits him well, and might work for many others: telling better stories. Specifically in the form of picture books.His work in this particular genre began with When God Made You, and since then he has published many more, including What is God Like?, When I Pray For You, and his most recent book, I Am God's Dream.https://matthewpaulturner.com/https://matthewpaulturner.com/category/jesus-needs-new-pr/Our broad ranging discussion covers a LOT of ground, including: How the campaign of George W. Bush gave him a spiritual orgasm with the catchy phrase “compassionate conservatism,” but eventually left him empty, especially in the wake of Hurricane Katrina (which Matthew notes as the deconstruction starting point for him) “I no longer wanted my theology to be against people.”How he started first critiquing what was wrong with his Evangelical subculture in his classic blog, “Jesus Needs New PR.” The path led him to start writing children's books, because he was “looking for words to read over their kids” that weren't destructive of left his children thinking God was a monster. How “children's literature” is a misnomer, and his preference for the term “picture books”, which enable others to see the spiritual life anew. The importance of representing all people in his books, and having a girl of color , first Illustrated by David Catrow, provide a powerful way forward by be the stand in for us all in his books.About his latest book I Am God's Dream being written during hard times, and includes that reality in the pages– but is ultimately driven by hope and joy.

I love a good adventure. I think it all started when my parents divorced. My dad would drive us to Texas each summer to stay with our grandparents. My brother and I would fly home a few weeks later. I loved air travel. Then my mom moved to Italy in 1985. My brother and I flew, just the two of us, across the big blue ocean, to Italy. This was the height of my Dungeons & Dragons days. So going to Italy was like stepping inside one of my D&D campaigns. It was magical. I relished it. My mom had a small home in Isola Montagne. It was a few miles from the Vicenza military base. I moved to Italy in 1989 to live with my mom. I visited Rome, Venice, the alps, Florence, Verona, just… everywhere. It was incredible. Life was an adventure. But I also knew that I didn't want to adventure alone. Sure I had fun in 2003. I sprained my ankle. But I had already booked a flight to Germany where I would take a train to Italy. It was fun. But also lonely. I wanted a family. In 2009, I met my wife, Gwen, at a house concert in Virginia. It was one of the few actual tours I ever made as a professional musician. We clicked instantly. We solidified our kindred spirits a couple months later when we met up in London. Our first big date was in Cambridge. I was living in New Orleans at the time. It turned out that New Orleans was where she called home before she swam out of it during Hurricane Katrina. We are connected in part by our love of travel. That's something we've made a big part of our lives, and that of our children too. We took Kenzie to Galway, Ireland when she was 1 ½ years old. It was cold, wet and rainy that April of 2012. But an adventure! Since then, we've gone back to Cambridge. We've traveled around the US. This summer, we're heading to Scotland and Europe as a family. This is what “Wherever I May Roam” is all about. It's finding happiness and love wherever we are. One of my first epiphanies back in the 80s was that if things aren't working out how you want them to, shake things up. Do something radical. That's why I moved to New Orleans. It's why I split up the success of the Brobdingnagian Bards to move to New Orleans. Travel is a great way to open your mind and spirit to great possibilities. 7:50 - Marc Gunn “Wherever I May Roam” from Selcouth You can download “Wherever I May Roam” as an MP3 when you join my Gunn Runners on Patreon.

Episode 376 – You can be right, or you can have peace – Part 2   Today we have Ronda. She is 56, from New Orleans, and sober for 2.5 years.   Exact Nature:  https://exactnature.com/RE 20   Highlights from Paul   We are all human, with faulty machines in the dome. It's okay to be right or want to be right, especially in the moment. Sobriety teaches us that we must choose peace. We don't have to choose peace immediately, but eventually, we must, or we develop resentments. Resentments, for many of us, can kill us. Why?   Resentments separate us. Disconnect us. And what's the opposite of addiction—connection.   Better Help:  www.betterhelp.com/elevator - 10% off your first month                                                                               [10:23]  Ronda and Odette discussed the sobriety journey and celebrating the decision to quit vs. the date of your last drink. Ronda is from New Orleans and recently moved to Colorado. She has three grown children, and she is an anesthesiologist. She loves sailing, hiking, and traveling.   Ronda's first addiction was an eating disorder. She coped with stress and shame with food. She recovered from the eating disorder at age 30, and alcohol became a problem. She got a DWI in her mid-forties. Ronda said she ignored all the signs. She didn't want to have a drinking problem. The culture in New Orleans portrays day drinking and excessive drinking as the norm, so it made denial easier.   Ronda was more of a binge drinker than a daily drinker. Her kids started noticing her drinking. Her middle daughter was vocal about her concerns early on. So, Ronda began to hide her drinking. Ronda and the kids evacuated to Phoenix during Hurricane Katrina. Her problem with drinking started then, and it took her ten years to get help.   After getting a DUI, Ronda had to go through a program to align with the recommendations of the medical board. Even her colleagues said, "it could have been me."   When visiting her daughter in sober living, Ronda got sloshed at the airport and faced her daughter's disappointment when she landed. When her daughter stopped protecting Ronda, it was another AHA moment that she had a problem. After her daughter went to rehab, Ronda started moderating when her kids were with her.    There are multiple ways to get sober, and Ronda tried everything and found a mix of programs that worked. Ronda leveraged AA, The Tempest Sobriety School (run by Holly Whittaker), Recovery Elevator, and Café RE in early recovery. With a heavy emphasis on self-care, Ronda was able to find her true soul, her wounded inner child, and the ego that were all within herself. Learning to take care of herself allowed Ronda to stack days and helped her to deal with shame. Plant-based medicine was a pivotal moment in her recovery journey.   Ronda was molested as a young child, and it was one of many childhood traumas that contributed to her addiction. Shortly after confronting her abuser, she took her last drink. It was a burden off her shoulders that she didn't have to hide anymore.   Joy has permeated Ronda's life. She has learned new skills, confronted her past, and found many ways to have fun, including mediation, music, dancing, nature, bubble baths, community, and board games (particularly Bananagrams). Morning routines are critical to Ronda's sobriety routine. She removed herself from social media other than her recovery groups.   Odette's Summary   Odette talks about shame, day counts, and restarting. Committing to sobriety should add value, not shame, to your recovery. It's not about the date. It's about staying on the journey. Remember that you are not alone and together is always better.   Upcoming events, retreats, and courses: You can find more information about our events   Resources Connect with Cafe RE - Use the promo code OPPORTUNITY to waive the set-up fee.

The first Earth Day was in 1970 after decades of conservation and environmental advocacy from Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" to real life monkey wrenchers in the deserts of the American West. Since then, like so many other things, it has become by co-opted by corporations, politicians and non-profits looking to do well with environmentally minded consumers, voters and donors. In reality, change always comes from below. In our Earth Day special episode, Bob interviews Scott about four moments in environmental history where communities led struggles against fossil fuel companies and governments. They dive into struggles against mountaintop removal coal mining in Appalachia, the southern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline, the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock and the community and grassroots led disaster relief after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
