"But I think we've always wanted to. Be Responsible, and we've always tried to be responsible in quite honestly I think we're more responsible a lot of industries out there. So if you want to read through the balance between vestment dollars and sustainability goals in the consideration of local community can operate in. This is pretty good article I. Just disagree with that I, think our industry has always played a part in this and I think we're playing a bigger part more and more as we move, which is the right thing for us to do. All right. All right. So the next article is cost of shale gas drilling permits in Pennsylvania, jumps a hundred and fifty percent one, hundred percent. That is insane. A breeze through this article in here's the part that really really bothers me. So this is the part one of energy production of Pennsylvania state run agency, that issues permits. A large part of how they get the budget to run themselves comes through the fees from well permit applications, right so cause and effect the cost show a gas drilling permits anticipating jumps one, hundred, fifty percent because the revenue for this. This state association has dropped so much. And it bothers me because your State Association you should be helping our industry. You should not be jacking the prices permits in time when we're all hurting, there's other ways to fund yourself internally you you're part of the state right y'all can move money around and I noticed not easiest me. Let's take an example from Texas, I mean, come on now let's talk a little bit about that. Well, I mean I was. Just A to go over what they charge prior to was low with five thousand dollars for non vertical unconventional wells and four thousand, two hundred for vertical unconventional wells. Now it's twelve, thousand, five, hundred this insane. That's so I. I was like man in my days when when when we'd get APD's which is a application for permanent journal that stuff I don't ever remember anything costing that much. So I looked up what it costs in Texas and it's anywhere between two hundred and two hundred and fifty bucks plus a surge church Louisiana twelve, sixty, four, suit twelve, hundred dollars Yeah Okay Bureau of Land Management in public lands in Indian reservations ten, thousand, two, hundred, thirty now bureau of Safety and environmental enforcement. They do deep water operation plants. That's thirty, five, ninety, nine were deepwater water. Well, that's will resume and that's just just for the deepwater operation plan. Then you have your APD, which is twenty, one hundred, and then a permit to modify that is one hundred, twenty, five dollars. So that's pretty ridiculous for the federal government to be lower than a state puts the sad it makes your point very well well yeah. That's exactly why I looked all this up because I was just like floored. So Department Environmental Protection Pennsylvania what are Y'all doing? Your home of the UTICA Marcellus that's one of the few places are still profitable for natural gas. You're jacking up the rate you can put more of the independent operators who are barely old and on out of business you know if I live in that state however that board whether it's voted in or it's appointed, whatever they would hear about this and I, would put a coalition. Together. To get this turnaround, you're going to cut production in a time in history where the natural gas industry is hurting the crew all part of our injuries really hurting you got hurt the small independent living your neighborhood who's Probably your neighbor, right that donate the money to your schools little league team and everything else looks like the Marcellus Shale coalition is saying they are the highest fees in the United States and they're calling for the Department of Environmental Protection to strongly urge them to put the pricing back. There's more sustainable. You know this is just wrong and I get it right. You want to be able to pave yourself. You worked for state government. You don't think you have many choices because you have less people apply for permits but going up on the price is not the answer you need to find another answer absolutely. Absolutely. All right. So Royal Commission seeks public comment on flaring rule changes. So this is actually really good flaring. If you don't know what that is is basically when you're drilling a well also when you're in production, if you have natural gas, you can't do anything with you basically burn it off and that sounds very wasteful. It's actually very good environments much better than the dumping the gas into the atmosphere without burn it because when you're dumping all the methane, all other gases in their raw whereas you burn it, you have a few small particular it's still the best thing in. The world and so the State of Texas actually took a look this based upon public input in some changes in technology and you go. You know what? We're just like a randomly give you a flaring permit like we used to now were tightened down the restrictions or go tightened down length of time because we want to try to force companies without hurting them from an economic point of view when a force them or push him toward capturing gas and use it. You can use it for all kinds of stuff you know the especially in the Permian Texas the pipelines captured that. Gas has become that infrastructure coming more and more mature. So now it's easier to tap news pipelines. You can use it to run GEN sets a bunch of companies out there that have jen sits there made to run with that really nasty well, gas not hurting the generation. Now you use it to produce electricity and there's at least three companies i. know of that are using that almost free electricity from well gas to power bitcoin mining. Right. So how cool is it that somebody's dropping off a Sikh handful of hype forms computing's runoff a well, gas gen sets mining bitcoin there's another revenue stream in. The future for the the owner of the mineral rights and for the operator. So just think it's cool at Texas stepping up like they always do and saying you know what? It's time to change the rules and regulations just enough to push everybody a cleaner environment right thing for them to do. They're doing it in a way that's not hurting anybody long-term wise and they're looking forward. They're looking at, you know where to go with us and we're we're going to go this zero flares in Texas and not just in Texas but in the country and eventually worldwide, it's it's something that we have the technology. Abilities now to eliminate an part of that is infrastructure do realize that of the pipelines and I do realism? Have Infrastructure, but we're going down the right direction i. just proud of Texas for leading charge and if I recall and it's been a while but last time I think I got one of those permits, it wouldn't. It wouldn't easy to get in the first place other just they're cracking down a little extra. So you can't just you can't just have one I love that. Good. So the oil and gas industry is going remote. Imagine that you think they watched our last livestream. So. That's exactly what they did. Mark Serena Slav Oracle in oil price but but did you listen you want the? Pages they're actually as a company I'm not gonNA mention his name starts to the V. as in victory that did monitor livestream included us like thirty different things put together own white paper based upon our experts at our last lashing to sell their practice.

"That and funding available for you. You've said you're working on a statewide resilience plan that incorporates best practices from around the state. So what can you tell me about that plan. Absolutely so i'm working on a state wide strategy but it's in coordination with all our departments and agencies so we're pretty much coming together being able to for example identify some of the Infrastructure investment opportunities. That are out there what each department is doing and resiliency highlighting some of the top projects that we could really move forward listing some of the challenges behind that also having a communications plan will be. We'll certainly be critical. You mean you could be doing all this great work but if you don't get that messaging out there you can run in circles another section. of course we'll cover other solutions such as natural infrastructure. We tend to forget it. It's not always the traditional seawall that we could work very closely for example with the department environmental protection Really being able to improve community resilience by looking at this repository of case studies. So i want to be able to really list all of that out there. Come up with some targets and goals you know with the strategy than it can serve as a guiding policy so being able to have an opportunity to implement that will be it will be. I think critical to really again use some of the best data innovation and innovation. That's out there and then part of that would also have an adaptation master plan Where it can really give confidence to the market and lay a clear road map for the next ten twenty thirty forty years. What are some examples of best practices. That you've come across Well in addition to the natural infrastructure for example being able to promote the development of mangroves is key to certain parts of miami and key west being able to also identify other solutions such as stronger sand dunes being able to address beach erosion being able to also push for a protecting our sea marshes all part of this living shoreline concept which could be just as effective as a climate solution than a traditional you know seawall as i was saying earlier so that was one that was front and center that i that i realized as i was traveling throughout the state that not too many of taken focus on Aside from south florida that to me was was was something that i'm trying to push throughout the state to see how we can really incorporate that in some of the planning for these cities as climate solution others would be pumped valves drainage systems There's quite a bit out there. In fact i was just in london with a delegation and representatives from all parts of southeast Us including georgia louisiana north and south carolina where we sat down and listen to a lot of these british companies who are working on their sewer systems and latest technologies and the businesses. They're out there so it was really exciting to see some of that technology so my thought was being able to bring some of that back to to the state of florida when it comes to drainage systems. These are just a few examples. I think that would be listed under some of the solutions Especially when it comes to also critical infrastructure protection and flooding overall by sea level rise. The so yeah these natural solutions. I think every speech. I've heard you give and you've brought it up several times already in this conversation you talk about natural solutions like salt marshes and mangrove shorelines. That seems as if you think. Those natural barriers are better option than things like bulkheads and seawalls in certain areas. Yes not again. It's going to depend upon the train. And what part of the state you're in so it's it's not a blanket solution necessarily but it's something that should be considered as part of that natural area and how can the stay go about supporting the use of green infrastructure like that. Well big part of that will certainly be advocacy. And i know there's a lot of groups out there and even the local chief resilience officers who've been out and about also working with their communities and also with the private sector too so i think between the advocacy and.

"So it sounds like at this point pretty much. All of your time has been devoted to to networking and sort of information gathering. Have there been any other projects that you started working on up to this this point. Oh yes There's a lot of information and data that has been coming together but at the same time Not Every municipality or city is aware of some of the solutions. That are out out there. So I've been talking to various officials. In fact I was just at a mayor summit on flooding and being able to share some of the Technology Oh gee and solutions that are out there with other municipalities that were not aware that could also apply some of these programs. I've also been able to help facilitate an. It's still an ongoing process of course chorus with some of the federal funding. That's out there. I met with The female administrator on resiliency and we were talking about how we can get Florida more involved with the brick program which is building resilience in communities communities. And you've you've got all this money available on projects and being able to harness. That has been great. This is not post-disaster but rather pre-disaster funding ending. That's available so if you're taking resiliency measures on public project beforehand you know there's there's solutions to that and funding available for you.

"Is south three regional manager with air vac. Dave how're you doing. I'm doing fine travis. How are you today. I'm doing good. I'm a i'm excited. <hes> one of the great things about this podcast for me is how to learn a lot about things that i didn't know a lot about <hes> and your work fits into that some. I'm looking forward to this conversation. <hes> let's dive into it here. <hes> what is a vacuum sewer sewer. How does it work and why are these systems use. That's a a three part question just to get you started a good way to start a vacuum. Sewer system travis <hes> central sewer collection system. It's primarily used for areas that were asai on lot systems replacing on land on lot systems at the centralized sewer system so much like conventional gravity. If you have have arsenals whether it's residential commercial there were injured on individual plants or septic tanks often times entities would like to you remove these because of their age and get him into a central collection system an ultimately to treatment so they can dispose of a hardy the affluent how vacuum sewers workers a little unique. It's it's a niche type system. It's been around since the early early sixties in the u._s. It had its findings beginnings from back in the eighteen hundreds in europe what it is we have a central vacuum station which provides vacuum on the collection tank which is located below grade at the docking station as well as the network were piping a sickly goes out to the entire service area then at the home in the right of ways typically faced buried evolve kit get which has an upper chamber that houses the accu meter face vile and a lore song the collects the contents into the sump <hes> the gravity when it printed determined amount of sewage enters the some the interface valve opens and he takes the contents out of assam and then ultimately propelled by different differential air down the vacuum into the ultimate vacuum station collection tack doc <hes> we operate on a sixty twenty inch mercury vacuum range which is basically between atmospheric area air about seventy nine psi differential so when the sewage comes into the soviet gravity. We have interface valve it on the backside. It's normally closed allows when comes into predetermined level. The vacuum interface valve opens new mathematically. There's no power required there. It cuts sucks the contents out of the sump two three seconds and then we have a dedicated air terminal that is <hes> piped into the someth- allow atmospheric air in it's that differential reporting that negative pressure versus out atmospheric that propels sewage down the line towards the vacuum collection station addition okay. That's that's a great <hes> description right off the bat of how it how it works i appreciate that and could you elaborate brady little bit more on on the reasons why these systems are used. Why <hes> you know different places decide to put these in well. Generally what will happen is a government agency or a municipality will have usually a consulting engineer the wolf i await eight the various methods to best service the area shouldn't it be taking them off a lot system like a subject tack or we've predominantly done well as in these type of areas that i've been involved with his areas where there is virtually flat terrain. There's no elevation change minimal. I want her table. Sandy soils with our technology. We are a complete closed system and because we have this patented sawtooth profile how we can maintain shallow gaps with our pipe and being the we breaking up into zones and reach out for multiple directions from the vacuum station. We use smaller our diameter. I saw it's been mostly also cost effective and being that is in fact tight system. It's a closed system so these taiwan or cable areas vacuum systems now allow infiltration or any extra traction due to the nature of its design so it sounds like a lot out of these <hes> the areas where this works really well are coastal coastal parts coastal areas right could be coastal could be interior areas. There's lakes aches spring-like areas which you see predominantly through florida region okay interesting so it sounds like a replacing septic systems is really <hes> one way that vacuum systems are playing a role <hes> and i think when we we've chatted in the past about how a lot of septic systems out they are aging and need to be replaced and maybe it's because they're aging. Maybe it's because they're not working. Maybe it's because of environmental regulations. Could you talk a a little bit about that. Yeah there's several reasons their in the state of florida alone at last count varies but there's well over two million existing septic tanks data floor probably the most of any state in the u._s. and many of these are aging align these these communities <unk> say the fifties and sixties of some of these septic tanks or nollie all but they're also there leach fields actually in the water table so they can't function properly as a septic tank shut so many of these communities have clusters of homes tens of thousands of these. He's aging septic tanks theater near waterways so between government regulations mandates at satcher. There's been several that <hes> what caused these entities. Try to get these <hes> residential areas off the aging septic tanks and that's where vacuums proven to play a good wall the the regulations are have they been changing. Have they been forcing more of a transition offer septic in recent years well. There's been a lot of studies. He's in various spring type applications. The indian river mugune a lotta the estuaries on the gulf coast. We've had situations in the north and i remember where they've noticed in high nitrogen loading and it's not all quite a bit <hes> cheer the aging septic tank nitrates inning out into the water ways of decreasing the aquatic life quality yeah that's been i mean florida has been in the news a lot lately uh-huh especially the past few years for a lot of the nutrient pollution issues and like you said the out algae blooms and water quality issues so <hes> <hes>. I guess people are looking. They're looking at a lotteries right but <hes> septic has to be part of that that mix it sternly can be part of the fuel that jab excels the out and we've seen it at periodic periods of times with temperature nitrogen loading voting birth. It gets really to be a point where you have not only small <hes> marine life you'll often even larger such as vanity and dolphin well dave. You've been working in this field for awhile and you know we've got a lot happening if with technology edgy and so forth in our world right now and i'm wondering how you know the technology of vacuum systems has improved and you know kind of maybe what changes are underway right now through just improvements in technology we speak for air vac we haven't i i amount starts with the research and development department. Which is i think where you're always continuing over time to prove your product. Quality of the materials aerials the design systems. We have a complete tasks brigham facility up at our factory. We just tried to continually improve how we can knob you know increase the reliability of active system in touch on a few things that i feel over the years that if made vacuum i'm over time checking logically form pro abuse number one where we ran our piping in graded us a sawtooth profile at which is <hes> <hes> allows us to extend the system further out making much more cost effective in some of the earlier systems <hes> the pipe itself if we now use a type gas which is a double lip gasket which completes keeps the pipe for many leakage during operation up prior to their extensively relied on glue joint fittings and there are times when you could get the fitting properly glued primer the glue costs small al- leaks in the system and thoroughly out in the field where the actual interface valve is now developed in the early eighties medically operated controller controller mercer's a solo annoyed type of <hes> operation for the controller to be the brains dope and enclosed valve so eliminating manningly electrical requirement in the service area is completely increased vastly the reliability of the system wow that's that's interesting and kind of going along with that <hes> we're also in this digital era right where smart water intelligent water all that type of thing <hes> how has that impacted vacuum systems well over the past few years and we've brought that into our technologists well we you have a patented considered smart system which allows us to basically mar system at multiple points in the collection election area designer assist the operator allows us to different varied as you know anytime you might have a peak flow during certain periods no flow during others in typical residential area you know in the morning. You'll have more peak flow. Perhaps in the afternoon and then in the early mid <hes> <hes> evening so this system allows us to your modulate the vacuum pumps to no clear they'd vac mains and get the the <hes> flow to the station and a more moderate rate rather than relying on just operating on a type system has changed changing digital digital it technology changing things across the water sector <hes> you've mentioned a few places there in florida where you know vacuum systems have shown their benefits fits and i'd i'd like to kind of dive into those a little bit <hes> just some interesting stuff <hes> could you talk about <hes> crystal river and florida and and the role of vacuum systems there yes crystal river was a project that we have got involved with in the mid two thousand but early on the kings bay is about three or four miles inland from the often it is basically a mecca for manage cheese because of its constant semi two degree water it has about thirty percent of the medici popular population population state of florida they regulate they realized the nutrient levels from septic tanks nearby. The waterways go into kings bay. Were increasing the nitrogen loading so the city embarked on replacing at the time about one thousand septic tanks which have been completed. Oh you did now but it was florida department environmental protection it rectum recognize it. I trajan loading was contaminating lagoon kind of issue grab money to assist getting these off into centralized collection system crystal rivers known outside of florida for for the manatees and everything he said that's a impactful project. <hes> another another spot in florida indian river lagoon what what happened there involving vacuum systems well so we embarked on a county martin county has been. We actually have three systems in fourth being installed now. There's five counties. I it really make up the irreversible goods arts at the on stay own intr- inlet in volusia county in more in and encompasses palm beach county martin county saint lucie county indian river county in volusia county all the way down to the post leone ill to the north north there in the allow waterway depending on what studies you look at that there can be anywhere between seven hundred nine hundred thousand an aging septic tanks along that waterway <hes> many now our moving into icing these <hes> <hes> we we were fortunate enough. Choose shoes start with martin. County took a progressive approach inter phasing this in where they can eliminate in their area approximately fifteen thousand subject. Thank ext wow and hopefully hopefully others will false file suit and do the same. We were a good fit for that because again it is i water tame wary a very flat fee and <hes> sandy soils so it was very conducive for the usa vacuum when these situations happen i i maybe it's different in each place but who's who's driving that that transition from subject to vacuum and who's you know paying for that. Is that like a county or municipal level kind of decision and funded thing. Do homeowners have to bear some cost or how does that. How does that often work doc well what they tried to minimize the cost to bear by the homeowner. That's why generally the municipality the your county their consulting engineer will evaluate they'll do masterplans studied determine which technology feels the most coughed cost effective effective even with the net present worth over thirty life cycle which seemed to because a lot of these are in existing neighborhoods are vacuum technology being ever you shallow eps pipe burial smaller diameter pipe with minimized restoration costs compared to some other type type of <hes> election system alternatives out there primarily conventional gravity. Now there are some times there's lower g sloan's by estate agencies. Some are now looking to get grant money from the state. Which would if you could get.

"And embody those stories at in a one woman show so we'll also be looking at the arts through a project that engages Batik artists in Indonesia who will interpret machine learning analysis of the use of the word resilience salience and so the Batiks will show how the word has been used over the last decades and it's an installation that you can walk through and it inspires thinking about what is resilience and what does it mean for you. I love this by the way I I interviewed. Ashley Bell who is an actress and become activist she did a great documentary called Love And Bananas About Rescuing the Asian elephants from the tourist trade so you can always incredible yeah. She's she's extraordinary. You Might WanNA listen to my interview with her. She's really really wonderful. I've so many thoughts going through my head about this. I will resist Happel quick career questions before I let you go. I see the earned a master's in geography after studying international affairs affairs. How did you get into climate work in the first place? Take us through in a cliff notes version some of your key choices and and maybe life events personal experiences that kind and of lead you through this pack. I started in public finance and government relations around conservation. So how do you pay for the protection of land and water. That's where I started and I was in graduate to at school waiting tables a place in Tallahassee Florida. I was getting this. My first master's at F._S._U.. And there was a woman who was the boat captain for research ship for the Department of Environmental Protection. He was gale and gale would come every Sunday to the brunch and and she said what are you doing with your geography masters and I said well right now. I'm I'm doing G._S.. And haven't really figured out exactly but I have this passion for the man versus nature or man and woman versus nature or in nature and she said well my friend is over at department environmental protection in the section and she needs people and I think that you should go over and see her and she wrote on the back of a receipt from the restaurant Kathleen Swanson's name and phone number and this is pre cell phone of course so I I have it framed on my wall here in the office and I called Kathleen Swanson and I said that gale said that I should come see you and I went over and learned what they were doing and was ultimately hired there and was at the department environmental protection learning all about what they do Ooh I used at this time the was a backpack this giant Trimble yellow backpack with a almost like a space like antenna off the top of it and I when all over the state of Florida mapping environmentally degraded lands for a map that was going be the basis for a Mitigation Bank for wetlands destruction so that took me into the EP and the Quick Story is they put me in a little teeny cubby next to a woman who was the head of water policy. The only spot they had for me was on the tenth floor which is where all the senior folks were and a woman. She said hey come in. You know what do you do and I. She told me what she did and she said look at this legislation. They're trying to undermine those this wetland protection law that we've been defending and we're going to have to fight this and Yada Yada read abyss and so she started giving me things to read and I realized I loved the field work I was doing but it's really more interested in the policy work and how fascinating to go and talk with people and convince them this was the better way to go and understand the legislative process and so from there where she come took me under her wing ended up. I went to the Nature Conservancy for a short stint. I ended up at the trust for public land and at that moment the world was turning the corner to climate change and the state was not having a conversation about l.. Climate Change the state of Florida that around the time when Rick Scott banned the words climate change. This is pre Rick Scott. This is Jim Bush okay much more moderate but also there wasn't a vocabulary yet for there wasn't an urgency there wasn't an urgency <hes> and and so I started working on climate change from a practical economic standpoint and thinking about from the public finance what are the risks that the state faces as a result of the things we're going to be seeing well. Florida would be huge and I ended up fast forward as the deputy chief of staff to the elected chief financial officer of the State of Florida and we were the first treasurer to do a formal public analysis of climate risk in the Treasury portfolio and so we started pushing that conversation of the state is is exposed like crazy twelve hundred miles of coastline the tourism industry is the driver of the economy and we have to pay attention to this we have to we have to have a plan and so that was where I created or came to the finance climate change climate adaptation and conservation all came together and came to Washington to work for the Nature Conservancy call and it sounds like the policy side goes back to your scale ability passion that it gives you a chance chance to have a bigger impact on a bigger level for more people in more places rather than just measuring plot of land or a wetlands someplace or working on one specific area gave you a chance to to broaden your impact. You also were senior V._p.. Bank America in this work so it's so interesting because most people in for profit go from four profit to nonprofit and you've gone from government to nonprofit to four Prophet to nonprofit profit and it's an unusual mapping. I mean it's hard to do frankly. How have you had to adapt and be resilient in these different environments well? I think it helped my father was an air force officer and so I went to fourteen fourteen schools before I went to college and so- adapting to new environments pretty natural and was a requirement of survival as a kid and so going into a place and figuring out what are the incentives how do people what are the informal networks. Communication here mostly what's driving people what are people trying to get done here and how do they do it and there's the formal network of authority and then there's the informal and so just understanding all of the inner workings of the backdrop of an organization but the key thing for me was always what can I out. What contribution can I make to the world and you hit on something? I always wanted to an intern for me that moment. She said he looked at this. Policy is big big impact big money. Eh and we're in a hurry. We've known that this crisis is here and we're running out of time to fix it and regardless of our ability to pull back our emissions which we're going in the wrong direction and we just picked up today that countries reporting in at a meeting recently and they're reporting they're not hitting their targets and that's not surprising and so we'll have to deal with what that means and that means that these people in economies are being set back and we'll do what we can but the key thing is what can you do to use the pieces and parts of the organization that you're end to drive toward that and Bank of America with its commitment. That's now I think two hundred billion invested in low-carbon and resilient investments over the I think up to twenty twenty thirty or twenty maybe twenty fifty twenty thirty. That's a great start and thinking about understanding what the risk exposure is in their portfolios which was part of my role was to understand what the task force for climate related financial disclosures like what what would reporting for a bank look like like Bank of America and then to think about all the business lines and then think the business lines and the communities are are the same. It's think about those supply chain or the workforce these are communities their families and so there's a convergence of the need for companies to understand what their exposure is and mitigate it. Yes and to disclose it in soon enough. They'll be regulatory frameworks. I think everywhere we've got them in the U._k.. And in California in the E._U. Come into the private sector is doing it on their own and we've got the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and companies requiring these disclosures for their supply chain absolutely and so that helps those companies understand what their exposure is but then investing in resilience in these communities means. Everybody can get something that we need. which is you know shoring up the community for better preparation for being prepared for this stuff one more question before I let you go my audience while to I lied first of all a quick question? Women are a big piece of the community in my view. When you hire a woman or you engage a woman you engage the whole community and obviously running families? You know they bring us circuit. How or you or are you specifically going to reach out to women who've a women's initiative partnering with some of these other groups that are particularly targeting women's groups in the climate space? We have all of our project work goes goes through a lens of gender and biodiversity so anything that we do will look at disaggregated gender data and understand if investment in this in the women of this community. Give us more resilience which most of the time it does we will do that. We'll have a gender policy. It's development right now for the center and we will prioritize gender as a project priority right as a line yet. It's women tend to pay back loans faster and better I mean it's just as the whole don't get me started on that one so in closing I like to give advice to women who are in mid career who want to use there have a significant amount of experience okay at least ten fifteen years of experience who want ought to use their education and their experienced to make a difference and particularly in this space. What would you suggest to them? They WANNA make money they while they're ambitious they WANNA make a difference and make money and be successful. zestful fulfilled at the same time use relationships as the basis of your strategy and know what you're trying to achieve and spend the time it takes to understand what you're trying to achieve and then understand the relationships that are going to help you get there and use little tools like Google alerts hurts to follow what people are doing and follow the people you care about and that you admire and don't be afraid to change jobs. If you have made the assessment that you want to be doing something different and you can't see a path clear of the job where you are now change jobs and just get your strategy together other and understand your value proposition and clearly articulated. Wow okay. That's a whole nother interview we can talk about. I love that that's perfect and I sort of model it because I've lived in nine states and as you heard me say not exactly staying with one one company my whole life yeah right so thank you so much for joining us Kathy Bowsman McLeod really thank you for hosting us.

"And then it goes up a little bit into the panhandle, and I should know better exactly where the recreational fishery stops. But it's a seasonal fishery. There are still hundreds and hundreds of boats that go out it's really popular family pastime, but the state is working and a lot of organizations really too many to list are working on bay scallop restoration. I'm primarily working in south west, Florida. But one of the things I'm working on is developing some genetic tools that would allow us to do parentage analysis where we can take scallops that are spawned in a hatchery and conclusively verify that when we find them later that their the product of restoration and those same tools could be used at a statewide level to look at population connectivity and how they move around. But the basic premise is just that we spun scallops in the hatchery and then raise the larvae to a certain stage. Sometimes they're even raised up to like juvenile scallops. And then returned back to seagrass beds on scallops are really obligate for seagrass. And then the seagrass work that we're doing is really just getting off the ground. But what we're hoping to do with that is propeller scar restoration so propeller scarring is a big issue. You can imagine the scallops have to be in seagrass and everybody wants the scallops. You get a lot of boat traffic and really shallow seagrass areas. And when a boat goes through to shallow seagrass area the propeller can cut a big scar. In that seagrass, and there are methods out there that are available to actively restore that scar. So you can bring it back up to grade you can plant it and that kind of stuff. So that's something that we're working on hopefully, doing some of that in a big bend area where all the scalloping takes place in. Maybe a quick went on the oyster stew. Okay. So waster wished restoration is a huge huge thing around Tampa Bay, especially but all throughout the state. I mean, I'm right here on Tampa Bay's almost familiar with it here. But what we do for restoration is us, basically culture in Florida. We have a lot of mind shell that. We're able to use. You can also use recycled shell from restaurants or seafood processors that shell when it's recycled has to sit for six months, basically in quarantine to avoid any sort of diseases or parasites getting back into the system, but talking to WC about this in Florida where mostly substrate limited rather than recruitment limited. So if we put out bags of oyster shell most places on the Gulf Coast of Florida at the right time of year that shell will be naturally colonized by waster larvae that are just swimming around in the water column looking for somewhere to land. So I have a specific project in partnership with Hernando county that's funded by the Florida Department environmental protection and Noah where we're going to do a fairly small scale waster reef right off a Fernando beach. But it will be the first restoration of its kind in Hernando county. So we're really looking to expand the geographic footprint of choice to restoration in order to create us connected habitats that we're looking for. Well, thanks for that refund. On those other areas that.

"And more coming up, and we start at the White House where President Donald Trump held a round table discussion on border security and the wall and the partial government shutdown the invited state and local leaders included a lot of law enforcement southern border is something that should be easy. So what we're not looking to do right now is national emergency. What we want to do the absolute right to do it in many ways, it's easy way out, but this is up to congress, and it should be up to congress, and they should do it. And if they can't do it if they yell that we can't do it. His no way we could vote the security. There's no way we could vote for safety all dancy, and Chuck have to do is tell me, and you know, what we'll start thinking about another alternative. But this is one of the easy votes. They'll ever have. It's very simple. And then we go on to major reform on immigration, and I look forward to that. Because after fifty years of talking about it. They should have done it. And frankly, previous presidents should have done the wall. It should have been done. Not just section small sections the problem with doing a section of wall around it. So the world works for the area that is, but when you have big openings they just come around, and we can't allow that to happen. So we have great plans I met yesterday with the army corps of engineers building the wall right now as we speak. Somebody said, oh, but we had a billion six, and they haven't spent that the reason we haven't spent it because the contractors building it, and unlike governments this government in particular I like paying after it's built instead of before it. Learned that long time ago and building buildings. You let your contract to do the work. And then you see if they get a good job. And if they didn't do a good job don't pay him. And if they do a good job pay fast, President Donald Trump at the White House. The White House has directed. The army corps of engineers to see if disaster relief money could be diverted to build that wall between the US and Mexico if the president declares a national emergency. We spoke with Sarah wire congressional reporter with the L A times story at L A times dot com has this headline California water projects could be shelved as Trump seeks money for the border wall. Tell us about this. And what the what the president's trying to do here. Over reportedly trying to do some projects that were funded by congress last year and the ad Sastra appropriations Bill, the monies are even appropriated. But it hasn't been spent yet. And it's been allocated mostly for fun playing relief. And the White House is looking right now for places within the government where they can find unspent money like this that can be used to fund the president's wall at the border. This would allow him to declare. National emergency and potentially and this government shutdown in a normal year in an shutdown year. I guess you'd say how would these unused funds what would happen to these unused funds may what be contracted out at some point? Or they would be remitted back the government to appropriated again. Well, there's some pushback from Puerto Rican governor Ricardo Rossello who were seller who tweeted this no justification should be considered to reclassify the money that US citizens will use to rebuild their communities. If anything the conversation should be how we get more resources to rebuild those impacted areas faster. What have you been hearing from the California delegation in particular about the reported plan from the president very much against this? Some of the projects being potentially targeted and California are really necessary. I mean, you've got a lot of the flood plain in California comes down from the Sierra Nevada's and flows down towards. Central or southern California. And that's where the majority of California's get their water from, but there's also a constant risk of major could catastrophic floods. Sacramento area is the second most likely city in the country to be flooded. There's also been some tampering down of the reports of those of that plant, Mark meadows. The chairman of the former chairman of the house freedom caucus Democrats continue to refuse to negotiate in good, faith or appropriate any money for border barriers if they won't compromise president should use asset forfeiture money or other discretionary fees to start construction if not he should not declare a national emergency should declare a national emergency. It's time is that the general sentiment among the Republican side from what you're hearing. The idea of asset forfeiture, or maybe some other places to get the money. That's that seems to be fairly popular. And this would be a way for her both sides to essentially get a win and the government shutdown. I think the idea of using disaster funding, whether it be to actually make repairs after a disaster or prevent future disasters doesn't seem to be too popular. I'm getting bipartisan push back to the idea. Sarah wire congressional reporter with the Los Angeles Times democratic congressman Bennie Thompson chair of the homeland security committee was to ask today about finding border wall money and other areas of the budget. He was on a teleconference with reporters initially. They wanted to look at. Now, we understand you're looking at cool. Julia. Ego. Either. Caisson stay warm. We would oppose we understand and believe that this manufactured crises should not be. National emergency declaration. So we're going to have to stay installed on it. I just can't willy nilly exercises in that respect. So those communities that are on the natural disasters. They need resources military construction question those programs program three four five years out cap. Yeah. Those money. That whole acquisition and construction sites. Congressman Bennie Thompson democrat of Mississippi on a teleconference federal workers and agencies under the partial shutdown receive pay stubs today with zeros on them. And on Capitol Hill, the US house passed a Bill to give those workers backpay guaranteed once the shutdown. Ends speaker Nancy Pelosi California Democrat spoke on the floor. I support the Bill. I'm glad that it has strong bipartisan support at as it does as it did in the Senate, and that the president has given the impression that he will sign the Bill it ensures that eight hundred thousand federal employees who are going without pay because of the senseless shutdown ultimately get the back pay they deserve. But it's scarce consolation for these workers who are desperate to make ends meet right now, they're paychecks are going to be late, but they must pay their bills on time. And in full the impact of. This this paycheck is catastrophic in the lives of these Americans when they can't pay their mortgage their rent utilities, build a car payments children's tuition on time. The list goes on it affects their credit rating, and it affects the credit rating of the United States of America. I'm particularly concerned about the impact that it has on our veterans likes percentage of the federal workforce are veterans. They have taken their commitment to public service in the military to public service on civilian side. We don't do anything for for our friends. Our veterans and military families if we affect their credit rating so today the press reported that workers are desperately taking they're taking to the internet to sell some of their household items and other things sometimes have very reduced price for just a couple of dollars just to pay their bills. This is just not right house speaker Nancy Pelosi. Also, speaking in favor of the Bill today the floor debate Republican Greg Gianforte of Montana. Mr Speaker, I rise today in support of s twenty four the government employees fair treatment act of two thousand nineteen this Bill is a promise to our dedicated civil servants both those forced to the sidelines and those still hard at work without pay when the House Democrats, stop using federal employees livelihoods as a political football to fund the government, including border security paychecks will be issued Mr Speaker to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle. We get it. You don't like the president. You made your point. It's now time to stop messing around we need to fund the government. So we can make good on the promise in this Bill, and let's be clear. This Bill does not stop the immediate pain of missed paychecks under s twenty four federal employees still do not get paid until the funding bills are passed. And the government is reopened federal employees will still struggle to find ways to put food on the table and make ends meet until the house. Democrats agree to negotiate in good faith, Republican Greg Gianforte on the house floor the house passed this Bill. The vote was four hundred and eleven to seven seven knows where all Republicans the Senate passed the Bill by voice vote on Thursday. So now it heads to President Trump and the president talked about the Bill he was asked a question at the White House. What's your message to the federal employees? The messages that I appreciate their service to the country. They are incredible people the federal employees that we're talking about many of them agree with what I'm saying. And what the people in this room experts are saying they don't want to see people killed because we can't do a simple border structure. And I appreciate their incredible support. We have yesterday. It was I was watching this morning reading this morning that so many people are saying the president is doing what's right? And even though it's affecting us short-term temporarily as you know, Bill was just past which I will sign in congress making sure that everybody is going to be paid upon when this is over. But I just really appreciate the fact that they they have handled it so incredibly well and many of them agree with what we're doing. President Donald Trump at the White House. This is Washington today back to the house of representatives which passed a spending Bill today for the interior department. Environmental Protection Agency and forest service is the last of four spending bills the democratic majority brought up this week reopening closed parts of the federal government. Here are the leaders of the house appropriations committee on this Bill chair Nita Lowey and ranking Republican cake ranger the Trump shutdown is now in its twenty first day. It is outrageous that more than eight hundred thousand federal employees are going without pay many of them while they are still working and the American people are being denied vital services. All because the President Trump's demands for a wasteful border wall. The Bill deforest today would reopen the Environmental Protection Agency. Department of the interior and other critical agencies such as the Indian health service and the chemical safety and has hit investigation board. The Trump shutdown has suspended cleanups. Have hazardous materials delayed lifesaving rulemaking to keep toxic chemicals. Like methylene chloride out of American homes. The Trump's shutdown threatens the enduring national, natural, beauty and conservation. Efforts of our national parts as trash piles up and the safety of visitors is in question public health and safety should not be political bargaining trips. House Democrats have passed bills to open the government, but the president and the Senate Republicans continue to obstruct and delay instead of working with us to get the people's business done the solution to this crisis is simple pass the bills where we can agree. Extend funding for homeland security for a month to allow. Oh, time for negotiation on border, security and immigration policy. I hope that my colleagues across the capital come to this senses and stop this ridiculous Trump shutdown. Thank you. The gentlewoman reserves. The gentleman is recognized speaker. I yield as much time as she may consume to the gentlewoman from Texas. The ranking member of the appropriations committee the gentlewoman from Texas is recognized. Thank thank you. Madam speaker ironic today and opposition to HR to sixty six unfortunately, moving this villa cross. The house store will not resolve the partial government shutdown as the president said he will not sign this Bill into law. It's a job and responsibility of congress to appropriate funds. Leila's come together to find a solution that will reopen the government and fun border security. We need a compromise. It represents the will of both chambers. And the American people considering the Senate pass versions the appropriations feel we're eliminating house members involvement in the process. This Bill isn't particular ignores ninety three percent of all house member requests that were included in our Bill, including the fifty amendments that were adopted on the floor. This appropriations feel for the interior department fails to include the twelve million dollars at house members provided to US Geological Survey programs. The earthquake early warning system that saves lives. It also reduces the amount of funds available to clear dead and dying trees from Faris to help prevent the kind of devastating wildfires. We saw this year twenty one million dollars the parking lot about the National Park Service during this shutdown..
