The teacher shortage has become a national crisis. COVID has exacerbated the issue, but other factors like burnout, a lack of adequate preparation and support, increased school violence, and political divides are also at play. We'll speak with Dean Jason Lane from Miami University, and with experts from Cincinnati Public Schools, about how to address the issue. And we'll hear about a new initiative called TEACh Cincinnati, which aims to address the teacher shortage, while increasing diversity among educators at the same time.

In this episode of Smart Energy Voices, host John Failla introduces Michael Forrester, former Director of Environment and Sustainability for the city of Cincinnati. At SED's recent Renewable Energy Forum, Michael shared his insights on Cincinnati's strategy of acting like a corporation that led to implementing its 100 MW PPA. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... The Green Cincinnati Plan [02:32] The city's motivation [05:37] Energy initiatives [07:51] Municipal solar array [10:37] Monetizing capacity [16:52] What's next for Cincinnati? [20:11] The Green Cincinnati Plan The city of Cincinnati has ambitious climate goals. Every five years, the city creates a climate action plan called the Green Cincinnati Plan. The most recent plan was completed in 2018 and laid out recommendations to reduce the city's carbon by 80% by 2050. These goals were created by reaching out to the community and building a document reflecting what they wanted to see in a climate action plan.  The 2018 plan was created by convening over 30 public meetings and receiving over 1,400 public comments. The Green Cincinnati Plan is a plan of action that the city works hard to implement, and approximately 85% of the recommendations laid out in 2018 have been accomplished. The lack of action on the remainder is due to either state policy restrictions or technologies that aren't yet ready, such as automated vehicles. Reasons for change The summers in Cincinnati have already risen by two degrees and will rise another six or seven degrees by the end of the century. The environment that the city was initially built for is no more. Rainstorms are intensifying and contain 37% more water than previously. The city's sewers weren't designed to manage that much water, causing incidents such as the flooding of the Xavier University soccer field with 12 feet of water.  Cincinnati is a city of seven hills. Those hills are composed of clay soil with no bedrock, causing the soil to slump when it becomes supersaturated. The increase in rainwater is having a significant impact on Cincinnati's budget. The main transportation artery in the city of Cincinnati, Columbia Parkway, required repair on one of the hills, so the funding for a new police station had to be used for hill repairs instead. The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati has spent over $150 million cleaning up sewer backups in residential basements in the past ten years. Municipal solar array Because Ohio is a deregulated state, the city of Cincinnati can choose where to source its energy. Utilizing the existing budget, the city set out to reduce its carbon footprint through a 25-megawatt solar array for city operations. The city also wanted to create jobs by ensuring its residents could participate in the construction. Eventually, the project evolved into a 100-megawatt solar array so the city could achieve the cost-saving benefits of scale.  City operations alone weren't enough, so the city had to figure out how to tap into its residential aggregation program and use that load of 83,000 residents to help achieve scale. The contract is divided into 35 megawatts for city operations and 65 megawatts for residential. The residential portion was all about partnership. The city went to the market and offered its residential accounts in exchange for a company signing a PPA on the city's behalf. Through a series of contracts, the city of Cincinnati could maintain rights to the RECs and the capacity for the solar array. These efforts protect the city of Cincinnati while also saving it millions of dollars. Resources & People Mentioned Green Cincinnati Plan - Environment & Sustainability 'A cleaner future.' Officials break ground on Cincinnati's massive new solar array project Vistra Corp Legislative Hub Brent Spence Bridge Connect with Michael Forrester On LinkedIn Please Note: since this episode was recorded, Michael Forrester has moved on from his position for the City of Cincinnati.  Michael Forrester is the former energy manager for Cincinnati. He is responsible for the purchase of gas and electricity for City government and its residents through the Cincinnati Aggregation Program. These programs purchase 100% green electricity for City facilities, and residents, and was the 1st aggregation program to offer renewable natural gas to residents. Michael oversees efficiency improvements at City facilities and is working to develop 25 megawatts of solar throughout Cincinnati. In addition, he manages the City's residential energy programs which include the Get Efficient Program and the SolarizeCincy program. He is a graduate of both Miami University and Indiana University.

We have a couple of guests from the legal side on our show today that will help shed a light on Title IX investigations, student disciplinary matters, as well as current policies and training to navigate Title IX cases. Susan Stone's life work is to help students in crisis and to meet their legal needs. Recognizing the need for legal services dedicated to protecting students, professors and individuals with disabilities, Susan C. Stone handles matters ranging from special education issues to student disciplinary matters and Title IX investigations. Kristina Supler has achieved great success protecting students and professors in campus Title IX proceedings, which has garnered her a national reputation.

In addition to being a skilled Title IX attorney, Kristina also helps students of all ages facing academic misconduct, research misconduct and other types of discipline. In episode 275 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Kristina chose Boston University, why Susan decided to join Alpha Phi at Miami University, whether consent and bystander intervention trainings continue to be the best ways to prevent a sexual assault from happening, why due process is so important, what are some of the unintended consequences of colleges when they adjudicate these cases, how we can be more transparent in the handling of these cases on campus, what fraternities and sororities can do to prevent sexual assaults, how students should handle disclosures, and where to go for more resources.

The Crew welcomed a long-anticipated guest this week as Matthew Betley joined the boys to discuss his wildly original new novel, THE NEIGHBORHOOD. His Logan Pike series has long been a Crew favorite, and now Betley takes us on a blood-pumping ride through THE NEIGHBORHOOD. “Die Hard in a gated community, Matthew Betley's new book, The Neighborhood, is a stand-on-the-pedal, runaway-train thrill ride of the year. Ever find yourself looking down the wrong end of a gun barrel? That's exactly what this relentless book will do to your heart rate. Don't just buy it. Armor up!” —Chris Hauty, national bestselling author of Deep State and Storm Rising. For most of the citizens of Hidden Refuge, it's an ordinary Friday night in an ordinary American town. But when men claiming to be police officers show up at their doorsteps in the middle of the night, ordering them to evacuate for their own safety, it's only the beginning of a long, dark night that will prove to be anything but ordinary. Unbeknownst to most of its residents, Hidden Refuge contains something that very dangerous men desperately want, and they are more than willing to kill to get it. But Hidden Refuge contains another secret—Zack Chambers, a seemingly unassuming programmer and suburbanite family man who is far more than meets the eye. And while Zack dearly hoped that he'd never again need to use the deadly skills he'd acquired in his former life, when push comes to shove, he'll do whatever it takes to protect himself and his neighbors. Even if it means taking on a small army of trained killers with only his wits and a ragtag group of allies. Before the night is over, the blood of the innocent and the guilty alike will be shed, old scores will be settled, and shocking twists will be revealed. Propulsive, brilliantly plotted, and packed with Matthew Betley's trademark blend of gritty realism and edge-of-your-seat action, The Neighborhood is a can't-miss thriller. Matthew Betley is the author of the Logan West Thrillers and a former Marine Officer of ten years. Trained as a scout sniper platoon commander, an infantry officer, and a ground intelligence officer, his experiences include deployments to Djibouti after September 11 and Fallujah and Iraq prior to the Surge. A New Jersey native who considers Cincinnati home but now resides on the East Coast, he graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, with a BA in psychology and minors in political science and sociology. -------------------------------------------------- Don't forget to subscribe to The Crew Reviews, hit the "LIKE" button, and leave a comment.

Day Two is now in the books, I reminisce about what it was like when I had to cover 50 rounds instead of just 20. I explain how I called my shot and predicted Brock Porter to the Rangers, the highest-rated player on every board. I also get into the handful of players drafted from Ohio. The first Ohio college player actually was from Notre Dame College near Cleveland with Ben Ross going to the Twins. We also had players drafted from Ohio State, Toledo, Youngstown State, and Miami University as well as indirectly players from Kent State and Ohio University.  Next, we focus on the eight players the Guardians drafted and discuss why it is that even though they have grabbed some really interesting players none of them crack the Guardian's top ten prospects for me. There is a chance that it might happen at the end of the year if a few players graduate but not yet. I give a snapshot of the Guardians Day two talking about all of the players. We focus on the first pick of the day Joe Lampe, who strikes me more likely as a fourth outfielder. Then I switch to focus on the three players who went against type for them. Guy Limpscomb Jr. and Nate Furman were a pair of draft-eligible sophomores who are undersized but showed plus speed, plus contact skills, and strong walk rates. Javier Santos is a 19-year-old high school pitcher from the same program as Daniel Espino. I end with the five best draft names so far, based on discussions on Twitter during the draft.

The Cognitive Crucible is a forum that presents different perspectives and emerging thought leadership related to the information environment. The opinions expressed by guests are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of or endorsement by the Information Professionals Association. During this episode, LtCol Brian Schweers discusses the US Marine Corps' All Domain Effects Team (ADET) concept, which is considered to still be in the prototype phase. After describing the historical mission of the Marine Corps' Air-Naval Gunfire Liaison Company (ANGLICO), Brian unpacks the ADET rationale and composition. ADETs are task-organized forces that integrate information capabilities with lethal fires to achieve effects in the forward operating environment across the competition continuum in support of joint, allied, and coalition forces. These teams are intended to provide a scalable, mobile, and lethal force capable of operating across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains simultaneously.  The first ADET employed in support of joint operations was in September of 2021, during Joint Warrior in Durness, Scotland. 2d ANGLICO and II MIG continue to refine the ADET concept in support of the Commandant's Stand-in-Force Concept. Brian's research opportunity or question to the IPA Community: How do we know that we're achieving effects? How do we measure effects in the cognitive realm and tie it to decision making?

Ronald Reagan's hagiography has created an entire mythology around the 40th president of the US; anticommunism and the fight against the ‘Evil Empire' are the central tropes of the Reagan story to this day. The culmination of this narrative arc is the collapse of the Soviet Union, an event which is still routinely attributed to Reagan and, particularly in conservative circles, and hailed as the ultimate validation of American political models and of American values. But the historical reality of the 1980s was far from ideologically monolithic. Andrew Hunt's We Begin Bombing in Five Minutes: Late Cold War Culture in the Age of Reagan (University of Massachusetts Press, 2022) paints a nuanced picture of the complex social and cultural landscape of the United States during Reagan's two terms. The country was in turmoil, bitterly divided over the meaning of its recent past (from nostalgia for the 1950s to the trauma of the Vietnam War) and over the direction of its future. It was rocked by street protests fueled by a rebirth of activism comparable to that of the 1960s. It witnessed the rise of fringe conspiracy theories, of popular opposition to U.S. involvement in Central America, and of widespread anxieties over nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Hunt's book captures, in fascinating detail, the enormous pushback to the anticommunist rhetoric of the Reagan regime from citizens, activists, and artists, and the role that American popular culture—from music, to television, to film— played in reflecting, and sometimes influencing, the dynamics of the age. Oana Godeanu-Kenworthy is Associate Teaching Professor of American Studies at Miami University of Ohio.
