    S2 Ep4 - Work/Life Balance Revisited

    S2 Ep4 - Work/Life Balance Revisited

    Recieved a great listerner call on Work/Life balance, then a follow up from the same caller.  This guy knows what he's talking about, and is very highly respected by his peers.  He works in a D.A.'s office for a major metro area, and keeps a flow chart on his office door regarding contacting him after hours; I've included it as this episode's artwork.

    Anyway, his comments made me think of Amber Schroader's comments, which were featured in Season 1 episode 8.  Amber is the CEO of Paraben Corporation, and a highly respected pioneer in digital evidence recovery, so I included her comments again in this episode too.

    Personally, as of late, I have begun to focus any free time on The Paul F. Compton Scholarship for Excellence in Digital Forensics. 

    At this stage I'm setting up the new corporation logistically and soliciting volunteers for the Advisory Board, who will help steer the future of the scholarship and assist with award selection annually.

    Mental Stress & Mental Health Awareness in Digital Forensics

    Mental Stress & Mental Health Awareness in Digital Forensics

    Cyber Security and Digital Evidence Acquisition & Analysis are two critical fields when it comes to our future, yet far too few undergraduate and graduate programs exist for the latter; specifically the fastest growing sub-discipline of the latter, Digital Multimedia Evidence.

    As a pioneer of Digital & Multimedia Forensics I've literally spent thousands upon thousands of hours critically reviewing horrific video, image and other digital evidence.  Child exploitation, homicides, terrorism, organized crime and more.  Some of the worst of the worst, from around the world.

    Courage. Commitment. Sacrifice. Humanity.
    I thought I could bottle it up, like my PTSD gifted by the U.S. Army.  Nope, nobody can, IMHO, at least not forever.  That's why I've created a memorial scholarship in honor of the two men that passed on their empathy, enormous hearts, and incredible courage to me; my brother and my dad (Jr. & Sr.).

     The Paul F. Compton Sholarship for Excellence in Digital Forensics
    I'm so honored to be in this position. It wasn't easy. I couldn't retire from a single agency. I wasn't home when either of them passed away.
    Maybe when you can, you'll consider dropping a few bucks to support my dad & brother's legacy.
    We will be making DFIR & Forensic Multimedia Evidence Training more accessible & attainable for BOTH the public & private sectors. We will also...
    Set out to pay for one (1) 4-year BS and/or 2-year MS full-ride per year to leading institutions in the field, such as Marshall University.Promote the education & implementation of annual Mental Stress & Mental Health resources & evaluations in digital forensics.Agressively pursue accreditation for any/all certification programs related to DME.Pursue corporate & government sponsorship/recognition.Release a detailed report annually, as required by law for our anticipated Social Purpose Corporation (SPC) status.** NOTE: Currently registered as a sole proprietor in WA, with an asigned Federal EIN of  46-3092870
    We are also currently exploring adminstrative options regarding awarding of the funds with Marshall University. Several related organizations have already reached out with "morale" support, such as the IAI, NYSP, FBI, RCMP, and more. 

    WAYS YOU CAN HELP

    DID YOU KNOW that if every member of  our professional community donated $1.00 per week ($52/yr) we'd exceed our goal of $150K  per year(!)? 

    - Donate to the scholarship, when circumstances permit.
    - Help raise awareness of the scholarship by promoting via your website, email, social media & text
    - Join our Scholarship GoFundMe Team! Track how much you've personally raised, post updates to our supporters and visitors, and more.
    - Encourage employer and/or organizational support of our scholarship; have them add our widget to their site

    Sharing is caring, and I'm no longer on most social media platforms, so anything you can do to spread the word there would be helpful.

    S2 Ep3 - A short message from vacation.

    S2 Ep3 - A short message from vacation.

    Loving vacation this week.  Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend surrounded by love.

    Back to Montly Podcast Episodes: We'll get back to montly or bi-montly episodes now, thanks for putting up with my manic posts.

    New Services at DME Resources: I've announced two new services; Virtual Reality (VR) Tours and Audio Production.  Visit https://dmeresources.com for more info.

    Scholarship & GoFundMe Goals: We didn't meet our goal for the first week, but that's okay.  These things take time.  Most people prefer reality in small doses.  Keep you chin up, we've got this!

    THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE REACHED OUT
    Ten days in the hospital was refreshing.  I'd like to keep my life that way, which is why I'm now "Semi-Retired".  No more traveling; no need to.  No more, well, I'm not sure.  Taking it day by day, and feeling just fine about that.

    Take Care of You!  Once you've got that & your family covered, consider donating to our new GoFundMe fundraiser for The Paul F. Compton Scholarship for Excellence in Digital Forensics

    Thanks for Listening!

    It's a great read that uses some brutal truths to help explain the current state of Medical Mariajuana, Hemp & CBD use in the U.S. of A.

    Catching up with Rob & Melissa from New York

    That's Andy in the picture with President Biden.  He's one of the most amazing chefs I've ever known, and brother of another amazing chef, Rob.

    Still haven't heard from M3, and I'm beyond concerned.  Decided to check in with Rob & Melissa to calm my nerves.

    Sending love, always!
