It's a heartwarming to hear definitely. How precarious are those languages. This is this has been your life's work in many ways. How precarious our our indigenous languages across this country will there are approximately Seventy seventy languages across canada and it is majority of them are are endangered or critically endangered. And some of them have no more speakers left in their community Fluid speakers left in their communities which is a travesty in my mind. It's a loss of a great heritage and It ought not occurred. That ought not to be the situation. We know that in the years since the truth and reconciliation commission Came out there. Were calls on the canadian government to create this position.

"Travel Michigan. I'm Dave Lauren's from Shore Michigan. We are exploring the state of Michigan and I tell you, you're gonna have a relatively new way to explore the state of Michigan. I had just kind of learned about this recently. I heard a little bit about helicopter tours in Michigan. But not really a lot up until just a couple of weeks ago, I happened to see a sign that said, my flight aviation Dot com and that's the website for my flight. Aviation, eh? My flight aviation. They offer helicopter helicopter tours around the state to tell us more. Let's bring in Cassandra McAllister. She's from my flight. Aviation. Cassandra. It's great to have you on the program. Yes, thank you for having me now. You were telling me before We went on the air that you actually offer tours in several places around the state. So I'm looking forward to hearing about that. But let's start out in the Mackinaw area where I first learned about this. You're offering these helicopter tours. Let's let's learn about what type of tours and how people can take advantage of this. Yes. So mechanize, actually our newest location. We started up there this summer. We've been in operation since 2016. But our latest venture is going up to Mackinaw and we have had so much fun exploring the state of the city of Mackinaw. Um, the tourists come out of ST Ignace, so it's out of Mackinac County Airport, So it's actually really cool People drive across the bridge. To come onto the flight, and then they get to fly over the bridge. So we always joke that they get to do the best of both worlds. They get in and drive over the bridge, and then they fly over its. They see it from both perspectives. It's true, so you actually take off from the little ST Ignace Airport. Correct And it's right on the water, which is incredible. So the second you're off the air. You have full view of the water. It's uninterrupted views from the helicopter. You can see Mackinaw right across and then you fly right over the bridge and come back to the airport. It's to location. Nice. I've actually flown fixed wing from ST Agnes to the island is like a carnival ride with thehe winds from the straight straight to Mackinaw. But it's ah lot of fun. And something tells me doing this helicopter ride would be a blast. A cz. Well, how long are the kind of the basic tours and.

This is been going on. Not just with the George Four thing has been going on for a while, So we've been actually working towards this forever. So now now that we're seeing more People in different nationalities getting involved. It gives you a sense of hope. That maybe things will one day change, you know, And so, yeah, We're just pushing the message pushing, you know, raising funds trying our best to raise funds to implement all these programs to help the community and help Everyone. You know what's interesting. You mentioned self esteem before and I feel like it is so needed like mentors and things like that to let people know that social media is not riel, and I'm sure growing up when you grew up. When I grew up, it was much easier than what kids have to deal with. Right now. With everything online. You know what I'm saying? It makes perfect sense. It's like you're chasing an invisible image. You're chasing an invisible self of yourself. That It is not realistic. It's smoking Mayor is it's not really what it is. It's like everybody is chasing this image of OK if I would just order this TR if I just do this and I'll be perfect, and then they invent something else. And they're promoting something else on social media, and it's like, Oh, well, that's out of bounds do this, and it's like if we if we help our youth at the core at the foundation of who they are. Then that will always stick with him. No matter what you go through in life, you always be grounded. You know, You always have that sense of your roots and who you are at the core, so that way when things come about, it won't affect you as harsh as if you if no one's pumping that into you and then you know in the community. There's no beautiful images, murals or anything of that nature, like they're not exposed to things that other people are exposed. So it's like That that has a whole another effect as well. So that's another thing we implement in the in the foundation. We try to get them out of their surrounding areas like some of these kids live, what? 10 15 minutes from the beach, and they've never even been to the beach. Wow. And this like a basic scene. You know, it's like really sad when you think about it, So we really try to promote that. That's why we're really pushing for the Program so that we can have these kids introduce something different and see an outside world of what they're used to, because there's no fun being pumped into the community that are pumped and elsewhere, and if there is they're not seeing them. They're not reaping the benefits, and it's like it's kids shouldn't have to suffer for other people's greed, Ignace as far as where the funds should go, so Yeah, we have Well you're doing. You're doing great work. How long have you guys had the foundation? I've actually had it. I want to say this is probably like solidly like the last two years, But I started it when my father passed on DH. I don't know if you're aware, but my father actually passed today. It was on Father's Day in 2012 June 17th but they you know Father's days on Sunday, but the actual day he passed was on Father's Day, but I started it. Maybe two months after he passed, And then once I started going through the process and of actual grieving I had to stop everything because it was very overwhelming for me, and I just couldn't take it mentally, So I just back I just backed out of everything. And then the last two years up solidly, like coming back, like, okay. You know, I have to use that pain to push, you know, for my passion, or else I'm gonna be paralyzed in my in my sadness will be paralyzed in my emotional statements like that's not helping anyone So solidly the last two years I've been like You know, full forcing it. How you made, you know something so tragic into you know something good that you're doing for the community. You know what I mean? Yeah, and I actually started it I would do serving, you know. The community before my fat father passed, I would go to skid row every month twice a month. The last Sunday's of the month and I just feed them. Whatever my budget was, I would make it like sandwiches, chips, So, ah, Jews, some healthy, some not so healthy, You know, just a basic paper bag lunch. Sometimes I will put shirts and socks just whatever was in my budget, and my dad would get so upset at me because I was spending my own money doing it. And he's like this is not a good idea. Like I know you mean well. But it was also depression because I never had enough. It would be most of the time I would do follow Lee 101 102 100 bags and they will be gone in less than 15 minutes literally left 50 minutes.

"Ignace. Similize was a showman but when he truly believes something he fought through the feelings that might have otherwise nope back his voice one of the few things that he was outspoken and confrontational about was the simple act of handwashing. He was certain it was necessary but only after much observation getting other people to believe him was a different story born in Hungary in the city known as Buddha which would one day join its neighboring city across the river to become Budapest. Similize started law school but he wound up becoming a doctor in the end in Eighteen. Forty seven just three years after earning his medical license. The methodical and intelligent fellow was given a notable position at a maternity ward in Vienna Austria. His job was basically as the chief resident which gave him a lot of responsibility and power over the staff at his hospital. There were actually two maternity wards which is where women go to give birth. The first word was staffed by doctors called obstetricians the other word was staffed by midwives trained health professionals whose main concern as caring for women during before and after the Labor of childbirth more on the difference later when some of I started he noticed two things one. All the women admitted for delivery wanted to go to the ward staffed by midwives and to ten percent of the women who went to his word the obstetrician. Stafford died while they were there. Well no wonder everyone wanted to go to the other word right. The unfortunate women died from thing called child bed fever which we now know to be caused by an infection. Women wanted to go with the midwives because well they weren't done living yet and fair enough but ignace wanted to know why there was a difference in the fate of the patients in the two wards and more importantly how to solve it so he made some methodical observations. I he noted women gave birth in two different positions in the two different words so he had the doctors deliver babies the same way as the Midwest. No difference same fevers same tragic results then he noticed that when someone died a priest walk through the halls ringing a bell in solemn honor of the women who passed he thought maybe this played psychological tricks on the women in the word. Perhaps they realized that someone had died in that they very well could be next. The suggestion alone might make someone gets sick. Meanwhile of course no one died in the other word hence Nobel ringing so do you get as line of thinking. Well he told the priest ago ring his bell somewhere else still no difference with his methodical mind. He tried everything he could think of. No luck of any especially for the poor patients on the ward then. One of the doctors got sick with symptoms similar to the women and before long. He too died at this time. Medical doctors not only took care of living patients but they spent time on cadavers. Or dead bodies. It's kind of gross. When you think about it and it would certainly give me the willies. But what better way is there to learn about the human body than with a real not live human body? It ain't pleasant but it's the truth and we've learned a lot as society in this way anyway. It turns out that this now dead doctor had practised finger while working with a dead body now we know he got an infection and he died eighteen fifties Austria like pretty much everywhere else in the world didn't understand germs or bacteria or viruses or infections yet. There were still plenty of people who most diseases were brought on by miasma which is bad air in shortly idea was that you might smell something really bad and then get sick. It sounds crazy now but you should understand that. Most diseases made a body smell bad You're around some smelly sick person. You might get sick too. We know it's germs now but all they had to go on was that sticky stinky surrounding. The city Sim obese new. They're just had to be a connection between the dead bodies and the sickness. Unlike the midwives who simply dealt with the pregnant women many of the doctor spent time dissecting analyzing and learning from the cadavers which obviously meant touching them then they just hopped on over to the maternity ward when there was a baby to deliver and they did not wash their hands or their tools. Crazy right by today's standards. Yes but two hundred years ago. This was business as usual. The connection had not been made by science. The evidence was pretty clear to some of ice so he made a new rule. Doctors must wash their hands in chlorine and their tools. And guess what happened. The number of deaths fell dramatically. In fact in the obstetricians ward the survival rate was basically the same as the midwives ward so he went around telling everybody about it. Wash your hands. You're bringing gross stuff to a healthy body with your unclean tools and you're unclean fingers and instead of being excited and saying thank you. The doctors were like you're telling me I making my patient sick. Who Do you think you are? I am a good doctor and you know nothing similize before long. He was ridiculed out of existence. It's too bad. They didn't listen to him. Lives could have been saved with some simple handwashing just a few years later. There was a British nurse working in a war zone during the Crimean War who helped revolutionize medical cleanliness Florence Nightingale paid attention to international science. She took her job seriously and was responsible for the lives of thousands of recuperating British soldiers. There's a chance she heard about vices. Observations there's also a good chance that she just figured it out on her own because when she implemented rules about washing hands and tools the same thing started to happen she saved lives but still there were plenty of detractors. The anti hand washers. The dirty hinders the filthy fingered. You know nothing nightingale. They cried but you see these two did know what they were talking about. They might not have understood it on a microscopic level but they could clearly see a relationship between dirty handed doctors and sick or dying patients. The world was changing in the mid eighteen. Hundreds and doctors were doubling as scientists often to determine what was causing serious illnesses.
Travel to Northern Pakistan
"Like to welcome to the show. David Harden from travel worn SATCHEL DOT com. Who's come to talk to us about northern Pakistan? David welcome to the show. Thank you Chris. Thank you at least to be. Your accent is clearly not one from northern Pakistan. We're talking T- well you're in the UK. Near Windsor what led you to Pakistan give you the shortened version. But when I was eighteen. I decided to travel overland from the UK to Australia. And I could as far as Afghanistan before you realized you'd run out of land. It was not in the Russians. Got In the way so yes. Well the happens doesn't it tells away two years and decided that still WanNa girl on the Silk Roads still interested Islamic culture and art and architecture and filling in the gaps. Ever since. I've sort of done Australia and Southeast Asia and all of Europe and a few of the songs but Pakistan is always there the one that I needed to to tick off really well in you chose northern Pakistan on this particular trip which as we were talking before hand you said is quite different from southern Pakistan and that would be a whole different trip. North and south is very different. I mean the north. It's cooled in those areas and they three huge mountain ranges. So you have the to the West. You have the Hindu Kush in the sense of you have the character forms and then surrounded on the north and east by the Himalayas. And they're absolutely wonderful mountain ranges but as you get further south. Islamabad where I flew into the great trunk. Road becomes planes. Sunset becomes desert would way down to Karachi New Arabian Sea. So yeah very two distinct areas. Shall we start them in? Islamabad actually just flew into Islamabad as bad as modern city. One of the interesting says the city right next to it as well. Andy which is the ancient city but Islamabad is the modern city Pakistan pill. Much longer grid lines are easy to navigate. I would say that actually just before I started this trip on originally planned to buy a motorbike in Islamabad an travel up through the Karakoram highway and then head off into various places. I'd read about in various books to say that I spoke to that is a big Pakistan community here in the UK. And I have up the friends one. Who's a Kashmiri? And he said well to be honest. I know you're motorcyclist but the roads are something else and I would recommend a jeep at least so you'd better listen to this sort of thing. They listen to him and I got myself a cheap and a guide to me actually at Islamabad airport. I spoke at the moment number weeks number of months. Really sending out my tinman. He can find out about what I want to and that was great and so I had this a jeep drive and I have to say it was probably the best decision. I made an enormously. I would travel alone and make my way round but I think this would have been a journey too far. How did you find a jeep and a driver a Kashmiri gentlemen here in the UK who promotes northern Pakistan but wonderful gentleman and he put me in touch with Earth's people over the and I came up with one Sean who you turn out to be absolutely brilliant and good thing was that. He's his the Chinnery but often is not. We will turn off the rodent gun sale. This liquid interesting here. I suggest we don't do this. And I think the question slips or went what about safety because one sure yeah this image of cool so Pakistan and especially the northern areas and you know I I thought of the trip I plan was to go up towards promised so and Eko took care of it. Sometimes Chris when you meet someone. They have absolute confidence. That you've made a really good decision. They already felt towards the back end of the trip. We ended up in a shallow. He said near the Afghanistan border he said had I gone two weeks earlier suggested shallow harassed security reasons and it's nice having someone who has local intelligence so to speak and he was always on his phone is always checking where we were not set up. There wasn't one time the only time was rather Longley wanting planted in someone's house and it was an old soldier. I didn't notice but his granddaughter sent his granddaughter all and having a cup of tea with him dump. She walked in with this shotgun undecided K. And he said I started brandishing. The shotgun around me and I was okay Maybe I made a mistake too much of a price to pay for a cup of tea but it turned out that he wanted to show me the gun which was made in combat nineteen sixty in Birmingham the UK because as from the UK and then he was crowded this so I mean that's the momentarily. I felt unsafe that that was it. That was the extent to how I felt and say in Pakistan excellent now you said as I said Islamabad. You said that's a modern city. It sounded like in your tone I was hearing so I didn't spend a lot of time Islam Abbad. I was more interested in the mountain. I sort of pasta very quickly. In fact which we left about an hour nine did we did come back so actually to see Faisal mosque. Okay which is a really beautiful most very modern initiative about nine thousand nine hundred and again a very very beautiful most news in the foothills of the Himalayas. It's great visit down as the last place of his. But I'll tell you about that. I if I may so folks in about nine thousand nine hundred. Eighty eight defies most because in Faisal of Saudi Arabia. Stunt up the hundred and twenty million dollars. Us to build it as one does the money partly he fis but what is interesting is he. Made a competition to will be architects. Come up with the design. Took you shocked. The name one is an Basti. The whole architecture on a Bedouin. Tent shot was pretty interesting in the appealed to King Faisal and he's a magnificent structure because it's like an eight sided tend to really doesn't like a tent and so big on this enormous white marble and gray marble and you just see it for miles driving towards thinking okay. Looks Okay and something. You just don't know the ten minutes down the road you think. I'm sure I should have been by now this grid system of Islam about so you go up. It's the end of the road unless they just ended up votes off the Bat. So twenty minutes you eventually get close to it and then you start to really appreciate the enormity of small the structure and get three hundred thousand people praying ally inside. I think it's ten thousand but with the porticos and the data coca grounds. You've got three hundred thousand people. Pray there and it was real highlight. Visit every interested in style of architecture. But one thing is that if people do visit to you have to take your shoes and men and this white marble and greyish sort of marble and it wasn't a particularly sunny hot day but every time I stepped off the white mob wants the gray marble. My feet wants to get an angle for a pit shuttle. Take a shortcut to the record. My feet was scolded eventually got in as well but that just finished prayer and like go up to the main entrance to get inside to have a look at this incredible space inside and they said No. I'm sorry you can't come in and I said well look. I sort of come with away from London. See this is. This is typical of buckets. Johnny people that they will try and be as helpful as possible really nice and he said okay look you should really go with this young man and he spoke to the man order when we rolled around the back this young man to be around the back and there was a back door and he took my camera with me. He said look no pitches inside and just tap a low. I thought this really really nice touch and again to tread on the carpet I saw rob and really nice and re serene place children. Having lessons and really great atmosphere. I came back and said I gave him my camera and come back and I was sort of going to complaints because everyone in that had come phones. So fees and pitches thinking well. I was lucky enough to be let in so I wasn't going to push that but really worth of visit. This is a lot of history to this place. That modern architecture ignace absolutely stunning in the surroundings of the hills with the backdrop of the foothills of the Himalayas. It's a

"Experience of now you're in the presence of some kind of emergency. But how long do you want to suffer the results of that hormonal hijacking of your awareness, and what we tend to do is we keep these these emotions alive in our thoughts for much. Much longer than their useful. And it's just one of these truths. You can notice about the nature of of the mind, and you really can only notice it by learning to meditate if you don't get lost in thought about the reason you have to be angry or fearful or anxious or whatever it is. You actually can't maintain that emotion for more than a few seconds at a time. It's impossible to stay angry. No matter what it is. I mean, no matter how grave the injustice that merits anger. It's simply impossible to stay angry for an hour much less day, so becoming aware of the mechanics gives you a choice in the end, you can just you you can decide. Well, how long do I wanna be energized in this way? But this stream of thought, and I think most of us given that ability will want to get off the Ribe far earlier than we do. But I'm not I wouldn't say that negative emotion is is never. Appropriate or never useful. I think it's been classically negative emotions like anger or fear. I think occasionally that we need we need that energy is just it's just you know, what you do with. It is is something you you want to be able to wisely. Choose. Yeah. I the more I practice in my for myself. I the more increase the the more convinced I become of the disability of things like anger. I agree with Sam that there is a galvanizing quality to it in the face of pretty much everything we talk about on the news. But. I don't find that. That is the most constructive emotion out of which to act. Sam talks about this. I don't you probably don't even remember saying this. But I quote you on this all the time that that. We we experienced anger, and then we re up at through compulsive neurotic thinking, but if you can cut down on that on what samples the half life of anger, the amount of damage you can do in an hour of anger versus two minutes when that reduction is just incalculable, and I've just found that for me cutting down that has been a huge game changer. It's not to say that I never experienced anger. I spent I spent time in anger today. But and so, and I don't think it's the type of thing we should engage in much of self-laceration over because we're experiencing it. But I do think it in my own experience. Having now investigated at length. I don't see much use for it beyond what Sam described the in terms of like taking action in extreme situation. Thank you. Ignace thanks for being here. Big fan of both the questions taking things on a little bit of a different direction. But it's not a perfect analogy. But if you were to look at the human race is somewhat of a hive mind, so we're collective consciousness..
"ignace" Discussed on Here We Are
"Most people course when you go back beyond the twenty century can't read right? So they don't leave written evidence. But we try to find evidence of what they did. And then from that try to figure out extrapolate will why did they do that? And what did that mean for them? Right. It seems so you have all it seems like people do like to exert some sort of control over situations if they can and sometimes this expresses itself in in. Habits routines traditions obsessive compulsions in and this. This could be part of this funeral process of being able to think further and further into the future. While we think, okay what happens after life? Now, there's this very chaotic unknown and chaos, and and our brains pattern recognition software that moves us forward. Don't don't get along. Very well, so anything that we can do even if it's kind of a placebo effect to think that we're having control over these situations might might be influencing what we do with our seems like rose seems like some other ah mammals out there, do some sort of a ritual Listrik ish behavior to there's some some discussion of that among elephants and some other. I don't know that well enough to know too. Yeah. But then you talk about a kind of emotions and the things like black plagues have have have have shaped us in ways like say are discussed mechanisms that make us go. Hey, let's not eat that rotten food. There seems to be some consequences to that. And and and then those discussed mechanisms sometimes get set off when we talk about our are more or less. I just had a person on talking wrote a book called objection disgust morality in the lawn. How these how these evolved kind of preferences or disgust mechanisms influenced the way that we think about say, our modern political landscape step what rights in win and sexual preferences. And what people should do what? And but also a plague must have and things like that must have shaped modern medicine quite a bit. They must have shaped sanitaire. Patient quite a bit in in the eventual use of of plumbing, and how we interact with that that almost a play a huge influence. Yeah. I mean, I think that one of these I try to do again thinking about students is that there's a tendency to think when students just look at the way people dealt with disease in earlier times over earlier you wanna make it. There media reactions these people really dumb because they didn't understand this or that whatever it is. You know, they they love or they didn't understand about germs or they understand about this that and and I try to sort of help them see that no people in the past aren't dumb. They just had. They just have different ideas about how the body operated what they did to try to deal with disease was basically, the whatever worked so that they were dealing with it in a way that was the same practical way that we try to do with. And we still don't know how a lot of medicines actually work. We we know that we know that they work, you know, you take this and you'll feel better or this goes away. But exactly what the mechanism is by which this particular, drug affects this particular way. We don't know that we just what works is tone. The real. Process, and whatever works, I take this. And I feel better. Okay. I'll just cheap Ignace until my friend that they should take this to me..
The Semmelweis Effect
"This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion, a growing number of high quality medical research. Studies challenge the status quo by providing evidence that traditional things like surgery, just don't work. It turns out that much of what we offer patients has little benefit. But that's only half the story. The other half is that once these studies come out nothing seems to change we still do the same number of useless surgeries. In part. This is due to what is called the Semel Weiss effect. This is the tendency to reject new evidence or new knowledge because it doesn't fit with what we think are what we've always believed Ignace similize was born two hundred years ago this month. He was an obstetrician like every other obstetrician at the time who lost a huge number of babies to infect. His disease. Now remember this was way before we knew about bacteria or other infectious agents. There was no germ theory of disease at the time. It was common for obstetricians to perform autopsies on all babies who died to try to understand the cause of death. But obsta Tristesse were in high demand, and they would go back and forth from what we call labor and delivery to the morgue. Well, similize observed that when doctors washed their hands with a chlorine solution between patients or between, the autopsy and the patient death rates fell not a little poten- fold at the time. This was a remarkable observation he urged his colleagues to engage in regular hand washing. Similize wise could not explain how hand washing prevented deaths, but he was convinced. It did his hand washing. Suggestions. Were resoundingly rejected by his colleagues. They thought this was the height of nonsense. How could a man's hands possibly transmit disease by something you couldn't even see similize continued his careful handwashing and had the lowest death rates by far in his hospital while he saved hundreds bias blindness and ego cost the lives of thousands. Maybe even tens of thousands because his colleagues failed to listen to similize or even evaluate his observation. It was worse than that. He just couldn't convince them the leaders of medicine grew irritated by his letters and his lectures, which accused the medical profession of being reckless even murderers when the establishment could no longer ignore him. They accused him of being psychologically crazy for considering disease caused by things that were unseen. They. You can find him to a psychiatric hospital where ironically he died of an infection years later bacteria or discovered and found to be the cause of what was in similize time. Call child bid fever doctors hands were the main source of spread but the Semel Weiss effect is very much alive. Today. It helps explain why humans doctors in particular reject new knowledge because it contradicts. What we've always believed.
