The Dakota Access Pipeline #DAPL - Episode 94

On today's show we talk about the laws and regulations regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline. None of us have had anything to do with that project and we're discussing it using publicly available information. As such, we're not commenting on the ethical and cultural issues, necessarily, just the legal ones. What would we do in a case where we were handed a large project like this? How would we handle it?

No One Is Flying This Thing - Episode 90

We constantly see on Facebook and other social media that field techs are unhappy with the business of CRM. Is it the crew chiefs, the project managers, or the companies that are making them upset? In reality, not really. It's a lack of understanding about the big picture. Once you realize that no one really has any control you then start to see how to REALLY fix the problem.

Trapped by Security - Ep 166

Many of us have been, or are at, a job that just wasn't the right fit. Why did we stay? Why didn't we just leave and get another job? The answer is usually that we were trapped by security. The words "trapped" and "security", however, have different meanings to different people. We talk about all that on this week's episode.Visit Our Sponsor: Oakum Solutions Follow Our Panelists On TwitterBill @succinctbill; Doug @openaccessarch; Stephen @processarch; Bill A. @archaeothoughts; Chris W @Archeowebby, @DIGTECHLLC, and @ArchPodNetBlogs:Bill White: Succinct ResearchDoug Rocks-MacQueen: Doug’s ArchaeologyStephen Wagner: Process - Opinions on Doing ArchaeologyChris Webster: Random Acts of Science
