In a video shared many times on social media, an Iranian woman climbs on top of a car in the conservative city of Mashhad. She takes off her headscarf and starts chanting “death to the dictator”. Young protesters nearby join in before the crowd build a fire and women start burning their headscarves and slicing off their hair. Such a direct challenge to the powerful religious authorities that run Iran would usually be unthinkable. But sustained protests have been taking place across the country, sweeping through hundreds of towns and cities there, as well as abroad. This week on Beyond the Headlines, host Mina Aldroubi looks at how the death of a young Kurdish-Iranian woman from Iran's north became the rallying cry for years of frustrations and anger at the country's leaders.

Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes ASTRALUX (Rock) to the Show!    (Click to go there) ● IG: @astraluxmusic ● TK: @astraluxmusic ● FB: @astraluxmusic In a sea of solo artists and musical projects, ASTRALUX is something of an anomaly – an old-school, Los Angeles Rock band. Introduced to each other by a mutual ex-girlfriend, guitarist/vocalist Will Schlich and drummer Michael Lieberman began playing together in the summer of 2021. Through a serendipitous encounter, bassist Camille Fadl joined one of their “jam sessions” shortly after, and the three musicians instantly recognized the unique chemistry between them.  Sparked by collective creativity, they quickly graduated from playing simple covers to writing original music, which led to the formation of ASTRALUX. In early 2022, virtuoso guitarist Tai Ayres joined the group, completing the current line-up. In only a year, ASTRALUX has established themselves as a fixture in the LA live scene – playing venues such as the Whisky a Go Go, The Viper Room, Harvard and Stone, and The Mint, amongst many others. The band's debut album, Desert Dream, is scheduled for release in the fall of 2022.   ● Media Inquiries: Amanda Blide Executive Director of Publicity TREND: PR | Branding | Social Media www.TrendPR.com

How do we look at uncertainty differently? Are you a builder, maintainer or an optimizer?   We're super-excited to be introducing some fresh new formats to the mix here on the SPARKED podcast. Our new Hot Takes segments, which we just launched a few weeks back, tackle hot topics in conversation with expert guides from the SPARKED Braintrust. And, today, we're sharing the second Sparked Hot Take, this time with Jenny Blake.  We talk about something that Jenny and I often muse on off-mic; uncertainty, reinventing work & life and putting yourself in the path of pivot, as Jenny says. We're taking a fresh approach to ‘pivots', especially in this time of across the board uncertainty. We discuss ways of courageously embracing change and using experiments to collect data about what you might be called to do next. How do you follow the full body yes? And what is ‘project based purpose'? We question why some of us prefer building things over maintaining them and how to embrace your preferences. And, deepening into this conversation on pivoting and uncertainty is Sparked Braintrust advisor, Jenny Blake. Jenny is a podcaster, career and business strategist, and an award-winning author of three books: Life After College, the groundbreaking Pivot for navigating what's next, and her recently published Free Time for optimizing what's now.  Enjoy this Sparked Hot Take on change and experimentation in a time when most of us have been navigating both.

That sparks what they do, and who they are. And today, I want to introduce you to Azuraye Wycoff. She grew up in Boulder, Colorado, on a family farm - now Yellow Barn Farm - that'd been used for everything from horses to food, but then headed East to go to college and thought she was never coming back. She founded a moving company in Boston, but something inside her called her back to Boulder in the fall of 2020. And shortly after she arrived, she was greeted with a profoundly transformational experience in the form of a wildfire that almost destroyed the family farm. At the last minute, shifting winds spared it, leaving her with a mission. To reimagine the land as a regenerative, sustainable, biodynamic ecosystem, not just a farm, but a community where they're bringing together different farmers and local stakeholders to create something truly extraordinary together. And, the Sparketypes, as we'll discover, played a very cool role in all of this.  Learn more about Azuraye & the Yellow Barn Farm: Website: www.yellowbarn.farm Insta: @yellowbarn.farm And more on Sparketypes at: Discover You Sparketype | The Book | The Workshop | The Website Presented by LinkedIn.

When we look back on history, the industrial revolution in Britain seems likely an historical inevitability. Following on from the Scottish Enlightenment and the growth of Britannia as a global empire and trading power, surely the industrial revolution as we now know it was uniquely and distinctly British thing. But is this really the case? To discuss this and other questions we are joined by Dr Anton Howes. Key amongst Anton's arguments is the belief that a unique "improvement mentality" drove the Industrial Revolution and resulted in the unique innovations of that time. We also explore the implications of this improvement mentality for businesses and organisations today. Dr Anton Howes is an innovation historian focusing on the development of innovation over the centuries and author of the Age of Invention newsletter. He is head of innovation research at The Entrepreneurs Network, a UK-based think tank focused on encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship. He is also honorary historian-in-residence at the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce, having written its latest history. Anton was previously a lecturer in Economic History at King's College London. Anton's forthcoming book will examine why innovation accelerated in seventeenth and eighteenth century in Britain, which in turn led to the Industrial Revolution.

Today’s episode in a NNS from September 1st and possibly the 10th, 1994. I have titled it: ‘Radio Hopscotch’ because there’s a lot of skipping from call to call. It appears to be the last hour of the 9/1 broadcast and then we jump ahead to some other September nights and conclude with what is labelled as 9/10. Brian McKinley was producing. I found this whole cassette to be endlessly entertaining. There’s a lot here for me to whet your appetite with. It all begins with a call from Fred in Medford about WHDH. Skip to Norm talking about a pianist who seemed to know how to play every song. 36 musicians in some orchestra with I believe Dave McKenna? Norm sat two tables away from Frank Sinatra! Skip to talking to Robert from Everett! Now we are in for a treat as this is the first of TWO calls from Robert in this episode! Norm was going to be participating in a charity comedy show at the Comedy Connection. Skips to a different caller from Maryland (maybe named Irv?) talking about WBZ history and a question for Norm, “Who were the talent known as ‘The Live Five?’” You’ll have to stay tuned for the answers. Norm had recently spoken to Jess Cain. Norm cites Jess as an inspiration to because of all the wild stuff he would do on WHDH and Norm felt he had to keep up and be wild too. We hear from Charlie in Abington with some broadcasting advice for Norm Then Larry who started listening about a year ago when he began a third shift job as a security guard and loves the show. Norm teases the guest for tomorrow night (kind of) then the kids in the Teen Canteen whoop it up one more time and he sends it to the morning news. Now on to a Jack traffic report and spot for Store 24 Lovell Dyett makes an appearance! Norm talks to Lovell about Sophia Loren and the temptations that are flaunted at big time radio folks.

We're super-excited to be introducing some fresh new formats to the mix here on the SPARKED podcast. Our new Hot Takes segments, which we just launched last week, tackle hot topics in conversation with expert guides from the SPARKED Braintrust. And, today, we're sharing a fun new episode format we're calling SPARKED Stories, where we spotlight the experience of one person and explore how they've built a living and life that honors, celebrates, and centers the parts of themselves that truly make them and their work come alive. That sparks what they do, and who they are. And today, we're going to start with a spotlight on the story of someone our listeners have come to know and appreciate, but you likely didn't know about the stories and experiences that got him where he is. I'm talking about SPARKED Braintrust member, Charlie Gilkey. Now you may know Charlie's work. He runs a company called Productive Flourishing, which is all about helping people get things out of their head and figuring out how to actually take the actions to produce the things that they so deeply want to make real in the world as a maker myself. His work has resonated so profoundly with me, which is why he's a part of the SPARKED Braintrust. But, Charlie also has a really powerful background. He came out of the military where the decisions that he was making, the systems and processes that he was building, the advising and mentoring and coaching, and leading that he was doing very often had extraordinary stakes. Life and death stakes. If he chose wrong, lives were at risk in a part of the world that was very far from where he grew up. He's since written a fantastic book called Start Finishing, which is all about his methodology.  As we sat down to dive into Charlie's Sparked Story, I wanted to understand what were his deep impulses for the things that he's done and what have been the through lines. And, of course, along the way, he shares his Sparketype profile and we dive into how that has informed the different types of work he's said yes and no to, the way that he has stepped in to them, and what he's learned along the way about how he makes decisions that better aligned with that.     SPARKED STORY GUEST: Charlie Gilkey | Website Charlie is a strategic advisor and executive coach, founder of the Productive Flourishing consultancy, and author of the multi-award-winning book, Start Finishing.

Nick Saban with Joe Z Interview 8-26-22

A man of vision who has a proven record of championship success, head coach Nick Saban has returned the University of Alabama to the top of the college football landscape with his commitment to building the total program. After the victory over Clemson in the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship Game, Saban joined Paul "Bear" Bryant as the only two coaches to win five national titles in the modern era. Beginning his 11th season in Tuscaloosa, Saban's uncompromising dedication to excellence in every phase of the program has resulted four national championships over the last seven years. A seven-time National Coach of the Year, Saban has achieved resounding success as a head coach and has earned a reputation as an outstanding tactician, leader, organizer and motivator. Those qualities have sparked impressive turnarounds at every stop of his career. Saban's consistent approach and disciplined leadership are the reasons his teams are known for exhibiting grit, determination and resilience, often overcoming adversity to achieve victory. Saban's 2016 squad completed an undefeated regular season for the first time since 2009 and secured the program's 26th SEC Championship – the third straight for the program – and the fourth in the last five years. The Tide defeated Washington in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl (24-7), before dropping a stunning 34-31 game to Clemson in the CFP National Championship Game in Tampa, Fla. Alabama finished with a 14-1 record after defeating nine ranked teams and 11 teams that qualified for bowl games during the 2016 season. Alabama finished the year No. 2 in the national polls. Saban, who was named the SEC Coach of the Year and Munger Award National Coach of the Year (presented by the Maxwell Football Club), had five players earn first team All-America honors – Jonathan Allen, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Reuben Foster, Marlon Humphrey and Cam Robinson. Allen also captured the Nagurski Trophy and the Bednarik Award, both of which go to the national defensive player of the year, and the Hendricks Award as the nation's top defensive end, while Foster won the Butkus Award that is given to the nation's best linebacker, and Robinson captured the Outland Trophy. The senior class posted a NCAA-record 51-6 record from 2013-16 and a 64-7 over the last six years which is also the best in NCAA annals.   Saban has compiled a 205-61-1 (.770) record as a college head coach and has gone 112-13 (.896) in the past nine seasons in Tuscaloosa, which includes a 64-8 (.889) mark in regular season conference play. In 2016, the Tide reached the 10-win milestone for the ninth consecutive season and won 11 or more games for the sixth straight year, which extended the conference record. Saban is 12-2 all time in conference or national championship games. Alabama has been ranked No. 1 in the Associated Press poll for at least one week for nine straight years, which broke the all-time record of seven established by Miami (1986-92). Alabama extended its streak of consecutive weeks in the AP Top 25 to 145 weeks, the longest in school history. The 2015 team secured the Crimson Tide's fourth national championship in the last seven years. They became the first team to win back-to-back Southeastern Conference Championships in 17 years (Tennessee, 1997-98) and were the only program to earn an invitation to each of the first two College Football Playoffs. Saban led his team to victories in the final 12 games of the season, including wins at No. 8 Georgia, at No. 9 Texas A&M, vs. No. 4 LSU, at No. 17 Mississippi State, against No. 18 Florida in the SEC Championship Game, vs. No. 3 Michigan State in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl and over No. 1 Clemson in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. The senior class won a school-record 50 games (50-6) over their four years with three SEC Championships and two national titles. The Crimson Tide featured Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry, who also captured the Maxwell Award, Walter Camp Player of the Year and Doak Walker Award. Ryan Kelly won the Rimington Trophy as the nation's top center. Linebacker Reggie Ragland was a finalist for the Butkus Award, Nagurski Trophy and the Bednarik Award, while A'Shawn Robinson was a finalist for Outland Trophy. The offensive line was also awarded the Joe Moore Award, which goes to the nation's toughest line. All four of the Tide's finalists garnered first team All-America honors, while Eddie Jackson was a second-team selection. Henry set school records for rushing yards (2,219), rushing touchdowns (28), rushing attempts (395) and all-purpose yardage (2,310). A trademark of Saban-coached teams, the Tide ranked among the nation's best on both sides of the ball, checking in at No. 1 in the country in rushing defense, No. 3 in total defense and scoring defense, and eighth in pass efficiency defense while averaging 199.9 rushing yards and 227.1 passing yards per game on offense. Special teams were also impressive in 2015 with Cyrus Jones setting the SEC record with four punt returns for touchdowns and place-kicker Adam Griffith connecting on 23 of his final 28 field goals. Saban's on-side kick call in the national championship game proved key, propelling the Crimson Tide to the program's 16th national title. In the classroom, the numbers were just as astounding, as UA had a nation-leading 29 graduates on the roster for the bowl game including three players with their master's degree in hand. He is the first coach to win back-to-back BCS national championships and has won five titles in his last 11 years of coaching college football. Saban is one of three college coaches in the poll era (since 1936) to win three national championships in four years, joining Frank Leahy of Notre Dame (1946-47, 1949) and Tom Osborne of Nebraska (1994-95, 1997). He is also just the second (Leahy) to win four titles in seven years. He is the second coach in the poll era to win at least five national championships (Paul "Bear" Bryant). Saban, the 2014 Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year, led the Crimson Tide to the top seed in the first College Football Playoff at the 2015 Allstate Sugar Bowl, Alabama's 24th SEC Championship and a 12-2 record. Alabama won its final eight games to earn a spot in the playoff, including a closing gauntlet that included wins at No. 14 LSU, over No. 1 Mississippi State, against No. 15 Auburn and versus No. 14 Missouri in the SEC Championship. The 2014 senior class finished with a 48-6 record over four years and went to four straight New Year's Six Bowls, including national championships in 2011 and 2012. The Crimson Tide featured Heisman Trophy finalist and UA's first-ever Biletnikoff Award winner Amari Cooper and Nagurski Trophy and Thorpe Award finalist Landon Collins. Along with Cooper and Collins, Ray Guy Award finalist punter JK Scott, linebacker Trey DePriest and offensive guard Arie Kouandjio garnered first team All-America honors. SEC Championship Game MVP Blake Sims set school records for total offense (3,837 yards) and passing yards (3,487), while Cooper established UA marks in every receiving category. The Tide ranked among the nation's best on both sides of the ball, checking in at No. 6 in the country in scoring defense and 15th overall in scoring offense. In the classroom, Alabama had 22 graduates on the roster for the bowl game (tied for the most in the nation) and seven players with their master's degree in hand (first in the nation). Saban led the 2013 Alabama team to the Allstate Sugar Bowl, making a sixth straight New Year's bowl appearance and the third straight in a BCS bowl. That senior class posted a remarkable record of 60-7 over their last five years with four bowl wins and three national titles. Their record in the classroom was just as impressive as 28 Crimson Tide graduates took the field for the bowl matchup with Oklahoma. Senior quarterback AJ McCarron was named a first team All-American, won the Maxwell and Unitas Awards, and finished as the runner-up in the Heisman Trophy voting while directing one of the most productive offenses in school history. On the other side of the ball, senior linebacker C.J. Mosley took home Alabama's third Butkus Trophy and earned All-America honors for the second straight year as he led a defense that entered the bowl game ranked second nationally in fewest points allowed. Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio joined McCarron and Mosley as first team All-Americans. Alabama remained at the forefront of the college football world in 2012 with an explosive offense and a retooled defense that maintained its place as one of the most dominant units in the nation. The Crimson Tide won the program's 23rd SEC championship (the most in league history) with a victory over Georgia that propelled Alabama into the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game, where they soundly defeated Notre Dame by a score of 42-14 to earn the school's 15th national title. For his efforts following the season, Saban was named the Bobby Bowden National Coach of the Year, his third such honor in his previous four years. Under Saban's guidance, Alabama boasted a 978 APR score that ranked 11th nationally in 2012 and second in the SEC. The Crimson Tide also had a 75 percent graduation rate, which was among the best in the nation. The Alabama defense led the nation in rush defense (76.4 ypg), total defense (250.0 ypg), and scoring defense (10.9 ppg) in 2012. The Tide offense ranked 12th nationally in scoring at 38.7 points per game, 16th nationally in rushing at 227.5 yards per game and set a school record with 542 points scored in 2012. The Crimson Tide featured four first team All-Americans in 2012, including two along the offensive line in center Barrett Jones and left guard Chance Warmack. A pair of defensive standouts also earned All-America honors in cornerback Dee Milliner and Mosley. Jones captured the Rimington Trophy, presented to the nation's best center, and the prestigious Campbell Award, as the student-athlete who best combined performance on the field, success in the classroom and service away from the field. The 2012 senior class set school and SEC records for wins, while garnering a 49-5 record since 2009, a mark that tied Nebraska's NCAA record 49 wins from 1994-97. It also broke the Cornhuskers' record (60 wins from 1993-97) for the most major college football victories in a five-year period with 61 (2008-12). The 2011 squad produced one of the most dominant defenses in the history of college football and captured Alabama's 14th national championship with a 21-0 victory over LSU in the BCS National Championship Game. The Tide defense led the nation in all major categories, becoming the second team since national statistics have been compiled, and the first since 1986 (Oklahoma), to accomplish that feat. UA allowed only 8.2 points per game, 183.6 total yards, 72.2 rushing yards, 111.5 passing yards and an 83.7 pass efficiency defense. Alabama finished with a 12-1 record. Saban's 2011 senior class won 48 games over the span of four seasons (2008-11). Seven members of the 2011 Crimson Tide (including five on defense) were recognized as first team All-Americans by major media outlets, while Jones took home Alabama's third Outland Trophy and Heisman Trophy finalist Trent Richardson received the Tide's first Doak Walker Award. The team was recognized with the Disney Spirit Award, which was presented to snapper Carson Tinker, for the team's response in the community following a tornado that devastated Tuscaloosa on April 27, 2011. Jones also received the ARA Sportsmanship Award and the Wuerffel Trophy. Saban's efforts earned him the Bobby Bowden National Coach of the Year Award. The Tide also had extensive success in the classroom with 38 SEC Academic Honor Roll selections (a league record) and produced one Academic All-American in Jones. Despite a young roster that listed only eight scholarship seniors, the 2010 Alabama team finished with its third consecutive 10-win season following a dominant 49-7 win over Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl. Five players were named first team All-SEC by either the AP or the league coaches, while six more earned second team All-SEC honors. Most impressively, two players (quarterback Greg McElroy and Jones) were named first team CoSIDA/ESPN Academic All-Americans, which marked two consecutive years in which Alabama boasted two of the three CoSIDA/ESPN Academic All-Americans in the SEC. McElroy, the ESPN Academic All-American of the Year, was named a National Football Foundation National-Scholar-Athlete as a finalist for the Campbell Trophy. The 2009 season at Alabama turned out to be one of the most memorable in program history, as the Tide compiled a perfect 14-0 mark and won the 2009 BCS National Championship by defeating Texas, 37-21, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. Alabama earned a spot in the title game with a resounding 32-13 win over defending national champion Florida in the SEC Championship Game, as the Tide moved to No. 1 in both major polls. The SEC championship was the program's 22nd. On Dec. 12, 2009, more history was made for both Alabama and Saban when running back Mark Ingram became the first Heisman Trophy winner for both. Saban's 2009 squad also was prominent when it came to other honors, as Rolando McClain received the Butkus Award as the nation's top linebacker and six players earned first-team AP All-America status — a college football record. After the perfect 2009 season concluded, Saban was presented with the first Bobby Bowden National Coach of the Year Award. In addition to the on-field success, the 2009 Tide active roster featured a nation's-best 13 players who had already graduated. That number increased to 22 players with degrees for the bowl game. Saban's first Alabama team finished 7-6 in 2007, but the 2008 season saw a vastly improved squad take the field. Saban's influence had taken hold in Tuscaloosa and – behind a small and united senior class along with a talented group of newcomers – the Tide returned to national prominence. Alabama developed a reputation as the most physical football team in the country and methodically dominated the competition. Saban produced the largest win increase from year one to year two in school history, as the Tide went from a seven-win team in 2007 to 12 wins in 2008. Alabama swept through the 2008 regular season schedule with a 12-0 record, moving to No. 1 in all of the polls and capturing the SEC Western Division Championship before falling late to Florida in a hard-fought SEC Championship Game. The team's efforts earned them a trip to the Allstate Sugar Bowl for the 13th time in school history. Saban was named the 2008 Home Depot Coach of the Year at the ESPN Awards Show and won several other national coach-of-the-year honors including the FWAA/Eddie Robinson, Associated Press, Sporting News, Walter Camp Football Foundation and Liberty Mutual. Lessons learned from the 2007 season – which was capped with a win over Colorado in the Independence Bowl – no doubt carried into spring and summer preparations for the 2008 run. The win also continued an impressive streak for Saban as he has yet to have a losing season as a college head coach. Of the six losses in 2007, none was by more than seven points. In addition to an improvement in the win column from the year prior, the 2008 signing class was rated by many analysts as the best in the country. Off the field, the focus on academics by Saban and his staff made an immediate impact, as the 2007 team put together one of the finest academic fall semesters in school history. The freshman class set a solid foundation for their future at Alabama as they led the way with an impressive combined grade-point average of 3.10 in the fall. Before arriving in Tuscaloosa, Saban's most recent college head coaching stint was a five-season run at LSU that produced a record of 48-16 (.750), one national championship (2003), two Southeastern Conference championships, three SEC Western Division championships, and a 3-2 record in bowl games with two Sugar Bowl victories and a Peach Bowl win. LSU constructed a 28-12 (.700) record against SEC opponents under Saban's guidance. He was named the 2003 National Coach of the Year by the Associated Press and earned both the Paul W. "Bear" Bryant National Coach of the Year Award and the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award by the Football Writers Association of America. Saban was named SEC Coach of the Year twice (by The Birmingham News in 2001 and by the Associated Press in 2003) while at LSU. Saban took over the Alabama program after serving two seasons at the helm of the Miami Dolphins. Saban's teams showed marked improvement over the unit he inherited. Taking over a team that finished 4-12 in 2004, Saban led the 2005 Dolphins to a 9-7 record, the third-biggest turnaround in the NFL that season and the second-highest victory turnaround for a Dolphins team in any non-strike season. Most impressively, the Dolphins finished 2005 on a six-game winning streak to end the year, the longest streak in the NFL that season. Prior to his stint at Miami, Saban's impact on the LSU program transcended the success on the field. His commitment to building the total program, placing education first and instilling discipline with responsibility on and off the field transformed the Tigers into a force on the national stage. LSU produced 84 Academic All-SEC honorees in Saban's five seasons, including 25 members of the 2003 national championship squad. LSU's graduation rate for football players improved dramatically under his watch and two players – offensive tackle Rodney Reed (2002 and 2003) and offensive lineman Rudy Niswanger (2004) – earned first team Academic All-America honors. Linebacker Bradie James earned a postgraduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation (2003). Saban also spearheaded a $15 million fundraising effort to construct a new academic center for student-athletes at LSU, and he and his players were active in community involvement in the Baton Rouge area, taking part in community service projects, visiting schools to mentor children, and taking time to visit local hospitals on a regular basis. More than 50 of Saban's LSU players earned their college degrees, in addition to 28 who were selected in the NFL draft (seven in both 2004 and 2006). Named head coach at LSU on Nov. 30, 1999, Saban led an immediate turnaround of a program that had suffered through seven losing seasons during the 1990s. His 48 victories over five seasons ranked third among Division I-A head coaches during that time. Saban, Paul Dietzel and current LSU head coach Les Miles are the only coaches in the program's history to post multiple 10-win seasons. Saban, Dietzel and Bernie Moore are the only head coaches in Tiger history to win two SEC titles. Saban's 2000 Tigers rebounded from two straight losing seasons to post an 8-4 record, capped by a 31-20 win over No. 15 Georgia Tech in the Peach Bowl. Victories over Tennessee and Mississippi State highlighted that season, along with a key road win at Ole Miss. The 2001 Tigers improved to 10-3 overall and won the program's first outright SEC title since 1986 with a 31-20 win over second-ranked Tennessee in the SEC Championship Game. An impressive second half against the Volunteers was a trademark of Saban's coaching acumen, as LSU outscored the Vols 21-3 in the final half to erase a 17-10 deficit. They won the game despite the absence of starting quarterback Rohan Davey and running back LaBrandon Toefield. Sparked by one of the most prolific offenses in the nation, a unit that averaged 451.5 yards per game, the Tigers capped the 2001 season with a 47-34 defeat of Big Ten champion Illinois in the Sugar Bowl, LSU's first victory in a New Year's Day bowl game since 1968. Stifling defense was the trademark of the 2002 Tigers. LSU posted an 8-5 record and a second straight New Year's Day bowl appearance. The Tigers, who faced Texas in the Cotton Bowl, held opponents to under 275 yards per game through the season's first six games and scored a school-record 30 or more points in six straight games. LSU just missed winning a second consecutive SEC West title, as a last-minute comeback by Arkansas in the regular-season finale prevented LSU from another appearance in the SEC Championship Game. That LSU team overcame the midseason loss of starting quarterback Matt Mauck, free safety Damien James and Toefield in successive weeks to make a run at an SEC Western Division title. Saban's philosophy of "out of yourself and into the team" paid huge dividends in 2003. The Tigers produced a 13-1 record, won their second SEC championship and earned the school's second national championship with a squad that was among the nation's most dominant on both sides of the line of scrimmage. The LSU offense scored a school-record 475 points (33.9 per game) while holding 13 of 14 opponents to fewer than 20 points. LSU's defense ranked first nationally in points allowed per game (11.0) and total defense (252.0 yards per game). After a 7-1 start, LSU ended the season with six dominating victories by an average margin of 35-10. An impressive 34-13 victory over Georgia in the 2003 SEC title game paved LSU's way to an appearance in the BCS Championship Game against top-ranked Oklahoma. The Tigers produced a dominant defensive effort against the Sooners in the Sugar Bowl, limiting the Sooners to 154 yards of total offense in a 21-14 victory. Saban's final LSU team in 2004 overcame the loss of 13 players from the 2003 squad who went on to NFL rosters, posting a 9-3 record while producing the SEC's best rushing offense (200.7 yards per game). The Tiger defense ranked third nationally during the regular season in total defense (249.9 yards per game) and passing defense (145.4 yards per game), allowing only 15.9 points per contest. Over its final six games, the 2004 LSU defense allowed only 12 points in the second half on the way to a berth in the Capital One Bowl against Iowa – LSU's fourth consecutive January bowl berth (a first for the Tiger program). Saban served as head coach at Michigan State from 1995-99, his second stint at the East Lansing school as he also spent 1983-87 as the Spartans' defensive coordinator/secondary coach. After playing in only one bowl game in the previous four years, Michigan State made four postseason appearances in Saban's five years at the helm. Saban led MSU to a 34-24-1 (.585) record. In 1999, Saban led his final Spartans team to a No. 7 national ranking, finishing in a tie for second place in the Big Ten. The Spartans defeated Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State in the same year for the first time since 1965 and recorded six wins at home for the first time since the 1912 season. The Spartans' performance that year landed them a spot in the Citrus Bowl. Michigan State led the Big Ten in rushing defense (77.0 ypg) and total defense (299.0 ypg) while ranking fifth nationally in rushing defense and 11th in total defense. The MSU offense averaged 31.0 points per game. Saban was the first coach in school history to put the Spartans in postseason bowl games in each of his first three seasons – as he led Michigan State to the Independence Bowl in 1995, the Sun Bowl in 1996 and the Aloha Bowl in 1997. Before Michigan State, Saban spent four seasons (1991-94) as defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns under head coach Bill Belichick. The Browns went from allowing the most points (462) in the NFL prior to Saban's arrival to allowing the fewest points (204) in the league in 1994, the sixth-fewest points surrendered in NFL history at the time. In each of Saban's four years guiding the Browns defense, they never permitted an average of more than 19.2 points per game. He built a reputation as one of the finest defensive coaches in the league and also was heavily involved in the team's player personnel and scouting process. Saban's first head coaching position came at the University of Toledo in 1990, as he guided the Rockets to a record of 9-2 that year, finishing as co-champions of the Mid-American Conference. The Rockets ranked among the NCAA leaders in both total defense (12th at 284.8 ypg) and scoring defense (16th at 16.2 ppg) and missed posting an undefeated record by a mere five points. Saban joined Toledo after serving as secondary coach with the Houston Oilers for two seasons under Jerry Glanville (1988-89), his first NFL coaching position. He quickly made an impact on the Oilers defense, as the team's secondary tied for fourth in the AFC in 1988 with 21 interceptions and then tied for second in the conference in 1989 with 22 picks. In his first stint at Michigan State, Saban served as secondary coach and defensive coordinator under George Perles from 1983-87. Saban played an integral part in helping the Spartans make three postseason bowl appearances, including a Big Ten championship in 1987 and a 20-17 victory over Southern California in the 1988 Rose Bowl. Michigan State led the nation in rushing defense in 1987, (61.2 ypg) and ranked second in scoring defense (12.4 ppg). A native of Fairmont, W. Va., Saban is a 1973 graduate of Kent State University where he earned a bachelor's degree in business. He earned a master's degree in sports administration from Kent State in 1975. Born Oct. 31, 1951, Saban and his wife, the former Terry Constable, have two children, Nicholas and Kristen. They have been married for 44 years and are enjoying the company of their granddaughter, Amélie, a daughter-in-law Kelsé and son-in-law Adam Setas. Saban co-authored "Tiger Turnaround" in 2001, documenting his first two years at LSU. He then co-authored "How Good Do You Want to Be?" in 2005, a book that offers real-life principles for success at work and at home. In addition to their work as fundraisers for LSU's Student-Athlete Academic Center, the Sabans supported several charitable and civic projects in Louisiana. The largest of those efforts was with the Children's Miracle Network, for which Terry and Nick Saban raised more than $100,000 per year. At Michigan State, the Sabans started the Nick's Kids Foundation, which they have continued in Tuscaloosa, a vibrant example of their continuing concern for disadvantaged children. Since Nick and Terry arrived in Tuscaloosa, nearly $6 million has been distributed to students, teachers and children's causes at over 150 charities through the Nick's Kids Foundation. The Sabans also have played a big role in tornado relief efforts in Tuscaloosa and the surrounding areas. Immediately following the devastating storm on April 27, 2011, Nick and Terry visited shelters where they paid for and served meals to those in need. Through Nick's Kids, the Sabans joined with Project Team Up and Habitat for Humanity in helping to rebuild 15 homes lost in the tornado. After the Crimson Tide's 16th national championship in 2015, the Sabans began work on the 16th Habitat for Humanity home. With support and donations from the Sabans, St. Francis Catholic Church broke ground on the Saban Catholic Student Center. In receiving the 2008 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award, Saban was awarded a $50,000 gift at the A-Day Game. He designated the gift for Nick's Kids, as well as an additional $20,000 gift for The University of Alabama scholarship fund. In June of 2008, the Sabans announced a $1 million gift to benefit Alabama's first-generation scholarship program. The gift has a special meaning to the Sabans, as both Nick and Terry were first-generation graduates.

Kids love to try new personas and experiment with how it makes them feel. First, she'll try on a lab coat and pretend to be a vet helping sick animals. Five minutes later, she'll change into a  tutu and dance and wiggle around the room. There's a permission here in this process to try on how different scenarios, skills, and characteristics make us feel. We can ask:Do we enjoy it and does it make us feel alive? Do we get bored with it really quickly? Can we imagine ourselves going through the actions of that particular person and that role?  Dress up and experimenting without a fear of "Am I going to look silly?"  Or "Am I going to fail and fall on my face?" is natural to kids. We forget to do it as adults. Yet, this type of experimentation is just as important and applicable now as it was when we were little. So, now that you've learned how to interview women you admire with cool jobs and figured out what sparks you, the next step is to experiment and try new things. There are several ways you can do this:Matching game: You figured out specifically what lights you up, makes you feel energized, and makes time fly by. You have the hard data about you to make really great, informed decisions  that you can use to shape your present and your future. Now, take a look at some women who you admire and their cool jobs. Whether you found her because you listened to a Women with Cool Jobs podcast, you talked to her yourself (go you!), or you have heard about her as an industry leader, you can write down some of the main parts of her job and see if those align or have commonalities with what sparks you! You're going to look at the specifics and consider: who she works with and in what environment, what are her responsibilities, what tools and resources and tech does she use,does she have a lot of authority to make decisions? does she work in the office or at home? does she travel? All of these factors matter, not just what's in the job description. Thinking beyond the job description will help you find a job that sparks you! Events:Going to in-person and virtual events, conferences, and workshops are amazing ways to explore new paths and meet new people. You could learn about details, characteristics, nuances, and other insights that you can't learn from a textbook or job description. These events also lead to deeper connections with possible future colleagues, inspirational women, besties, and mentors.

As I record this opening today, I'm filled with emotion because I just dropped off my son Ryan at UCLA for his freshmen orientation. Check the show notes for more reflections about this epic snapshot moment. Last night, Ryan and I stayed up late talking about what he wants to study in college and more importantly, how we hope his college and career journey will be one that lights him up.  It had me thinking about this conversation with Good Life Project podcaster Jonathan Fields. Jonathan is the creator of SparkTypes and a new podcast Sparked, which helps you find work that makes you come alive. Jonathan and I recorded this episode a few years ago, just before Jonathan was getting ready to take his daughter to her freshmen year in college. It's filled with heart, insight and wisdom and a reminder that no matter what chapter we or our children are starting, it's always the right time to ask ourselves the big questions about who we are and what we are here to do. Epic Snapshot Moment Reflections with Ryan He's off to orientation and going to UCLA a month from now I didn't do the college reveal post in the spring, though I've told many of you personally, because I think so much emphasis during that time gets placed on what school kids do or don't get into. I want to be part of the conversation that reminds us that college is not the only path our children can take after high school and that there are so many schools that are beautiful matches for students. But today, with tears streaming down my face as I go on a walk post orientation drop-off, I really wanted to share this with you… Ryan is going to UCLA! Omg Ryan is going to UCLA!! I want to share it because: - UCLA is where Chris and I met over 30 years ago and where I took my first independent moves to becoming the person I am today. - From the time we started going to UCLA's family camp Bruin Woods, Ryan has dreamed about attending, mastering the 8 clap at a young age, going to UCLA basketball sleepaway camp and putting UCLA on his 9th grade vision board. - Ryan worked with my dear friend from UCLA @cindykmcc on his college search application and essays. With neurodivergent boys of her own, she was so patient with Ryan and adapted the process to meet him where he was. - Ryan's conversation last fall with Julie Lythcott-Haims on the podcast was part of Ryan's journey to embracing and celebrating who he is, prompted him to do his college essays voice to text, and to be authentic about his life journey and identity in his essays. - Finally…because my Dad, who died in December, would be so thrilled that he is here, with my mother down the street, and a family support system of aunts  uncles and cousins if Ryan needs them. While there were challenging days on his journey where we could not imagine him ready to do this, Ryan has grown so much. He is as prepared as he could be for this next chapter. We are so proud of him and excited for him, but more than that he is so proud of himself and excited himself. It seems Ryan was fated to go to UCLA. Dreams can come true. But they do when, as my Dad always said, you pursue your fate. And wow did Ryan do that!   To hear more about Ryan's journey: YOLO (You Only Live Once) and other Milestone Reflections with Ryan Neale Embracing Neurodiversity and Being an Adult with Julie Lythcott-Haims and Ryan Neale   Full Episode Show Notes Check out the full show notes from the original episode here: Ep 63: A Maker's Journey to a Good Life with Jonathan Fields   Mother's Quest is a podcast for moms who are ready to live a truly E.P.I.C. life.
