NIRO Knowledge - Episode 0.3

What is worse than someone who doesn’t yield when coming onto the highway when they don’t have the right of way at all? I’m not sure but I engage the listeners by wondering if we can come up with various problems to be solved and if we can find out how much of a problem they are. My scenario wonders if those who don’t yield when coming onto the highway create the traffic back up that then causes stress and aggression and might increase road rage incidents.

Take to Twitter and let me know what daily problems you see that would be great to research.

NIRO Knowledge - Episode 0.2

In this episode, I speak about using Twitter as my main source of social media to get out quick messages, interact with the audience and my use of polls. I speak to the difference in using Microsoft Access and Excel and my online course for Access. There is a short Google form for anyone who wishes to fill it out and speak to any issue that they may have with Microsoft Access. These will be addressed and added into my updated online course that will release a little later this year.

I also pay tribute to a great man who we lost recently, Daniel Bibel. I read his biography on his show that was sent out over our MACA listserv. It was an honor to know him and he will be missed.

Episode 6 - Dr Peter Langman

Dr. Peter Langman is a psychologist whose research on school shooters has
received international recognition. His book, Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters, was named an Outstanding Academic Title and was translated into German, Dutch, and Finnish. His work has been cited in congressional testimony on Capitol Hill and he has been interviewed by the New York Times, The Today Show, 20/20, Nightline, Fox, CNN, the BBC, and over 450 other news outlets in the USA, Canada, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East. After the Sandy Hook attack, the CEO of the American Psychological Association presented Dr. Langman’s recommendations on school safety to President Obama. He has presented at both the FBI Headquarters in Washington, DC, and the FBI National Academy in Quantico. He has been an invited speaker at the National Counterterrorism Center and was hired by Homeland Security to train
professionals in school safety. He maintains the largest online collection of
materials relating to school shooters at schoolshooters.info, including over 500 documents totaling 65,000 pages. His latest book is School Shooters:
Understanding High School, College, and Adult Perpetrators
. In 2018, Dr.
Langman became a researcher with the National Threat Assessment Center of the United States Secret Service.

I talk with Cristina Fernandez, Scott Roberts and William “Bill” Schwarz of Springfield MA Police. They speak with me about their Real Time Crime Center where they perform tactical analysis as calls come in and strategic analysis going in the background among it all. They assist their agency but they also feed their community information about what is happening in their respective areas of town as well. If you are ready to find out how life runs in a crime analysis unit working in real time, give this episode a listen.
