A Father's Fight

"Spastic paraplegia fifty or spg. Fifty is a neurodegenerative disorder that progresses slowly from infancy patients experienced developmental delays specificity and paralysis in the lower and upper limbs and microcephaly among other symptoms. It's an autosomal recessive disorder. Which means that. The child inherits the disease causing genetic mutation from both parents. I'm joined today by terry. Pure volek s whose son. Michael was diagnosed. This ultra rare condition. Terry and his wife georgia founded the organization cure. Pg fifty in order to find gene therapy treatment for michael and all other children affected by this disease. He will tell us his family's story and give us an update on how research is going for his son. Welcome terry thank you so much for being here. We really appreciate being able to share your journey with you. So can you tell us about your family's journey with this disease. So on december seventeen two thousand seventeen michael. Our youngest son was born. It was pretty much uneventful. We went to the hospital mill the night. My wife said her you know her. Water broke our third child so we were prepared. We got there. The midwife is there and michael came out in pretty much like an hour and a half. We were home within three hours so it was. It was very quick. It was completely uneventful and he was a perfect little kid he was you know he was quiet. He was the perfect child. Around six months of age we noticed that he wasn't raising his hands and he wasn't following the milestones are other children. Were following in. My wife said know. Something's up so he brought him to the doctor in the noticed that his head was starting to fall off. The charter wasn't growing as expected. And he he had something called low muscle tone to that kind of fell into the odyssey of finding out what was wrong with him. And i think it's important to note here especially for any parents that have gone through this themselves. How agonizing this step can be especially when it turns out that it's this sort of rare disease. I imagine there were all kinds of tests and all kinds of doctors. Who were just telling you that. They didn't know what it was. And how heartbreaking. That can be for parents obviously are. I thought you know what he has. Low muscle tone as you know. It looks like he's head is smaller but don't worry about it. He'll he'll catch up. And then you know that kind of lasted three months and then we were like okay. Will he still not progressing therapies and he is improving but you know his head still isn't growing. What's going on so then we went to sick. It's hospital in toronto. And we went to infectious disease. Because i was traveling at the time to latin america and he thought maybe he adds zeka so we went down the path of siyavizy ca testing. And all the other infectious diseases. What you didn't have any of them obviously and then we moved into neurology. Team did an ira. And they found that they they saw few. You know things that were not normal but nothing major. And that's when they started doing you know the panel testing which came back all negative and then finally let. We were very lucky that they did the genetic testing and then on april second of of twenty nine thousand nine. He was diagnosed with this. You know terrible disease. And how did you find doctors that were able to tell you more information about this disease. We were really lucky. That won't april second. We were told to go home. Love michael that there was nothing really the can do for him that he will most likely be completely paralyzed with limited brain function and As parents we were absolutely devastated by drove home that night. And i honestly i don't remember how even got home. Allie member his crying on the street in the car. But we found a family 'cause we're hearing the paper. I don't know what happened. I think i lost it but denied the emailed us what the disease was in the diagnosis and we found a family that had spg forty seven out of boston and call them up that night in a panic and the as she walked us through the disease and and who are the specialists and they took care of us for the next two weeks while we mourned this significance piece of our lives. It was almost like a while. It is like a piece of our soul was taken away from us. That's a really amazingly lucky to be able to find a family and have them be so willing to help you out especially in those early days will not just not the lucky that there are. She already going in the path of gene therapy. So not only do they tell us what the disease prognosis was. But they were telling us what they were doing for their disease and for their gene therapy program and spg. Forty-seven is part of a protein complex called ap four and under that ap four there's four genes their ap for eight before and one s one g one and be one in ours was the same essence. We all have the same disease so we were very fortunate. Karachi went on that path and and and kind of guided us for the next two weeks on what we should be doing and we took it on and did it ourselves from

Insights of Commanding a Carrier Jet Squadron with Jack Curtis

"Jack curtis here on dose of leadership. Welcome to the show my friend. Thank you very much for having me. It's pleasure this is going to be an interesting conversation. I mean it's obviously. I love having fellow prior military folks on here but now that i got a fellow gold winger on here so that's always fun but never had anybody that's been in command of a squadron on one of the things that i always regret. I gotta the ring court right at ten years. I got the airlines. But what are the an. I ten years reserves and the guard. But i always regretted not taking. I always want to know what it'd be like. Take command so this is going to be a fun conversation. I am interested from your aspect of it. I was joking when i got on the call with. You don't look old enough to take command. But i forget how my squadron commander was like in the late thirties. Fifty two now. And you're in your early forties right so you just don't look old enough to take command but i it's just me not dealing well with the age of getting older but but thanks for coming on the show man privilege beer. I've listened to your show for for a long time. Several years. And i gotta i gotta admit i'm pretty humbled to have looked at the lineup of people you've got on your show and the quality conversations you've had into now get to be a part of. Its thank you well new and i have a history to because i don't how many years ago wasn't you reached out to me. I mean in karachi. That's probably two thousand and fifteen. Or so i had just selected been selected for command was kinda starting to do a little bit of thinking about Some this bigger picture leadership stuff and i came across your podcast. And i said hey. I think i'd like to talk to this guy. And your gracious enough with your time and I remain grateful for that. Yeah and you reached out in an i. Don't remember what advice gave you. Hopefully it was. It was okay enough. Didn't get fired very go. And and then you reach that again graciously a blast from the past and you kinda update me where you're at and i appreciate you. I thought well this might be good to have you on the show because it gives an insight to leadership that i think a lot of people usually don't get the inside baseball on right and i'm curious to because it's something that i've never experienced. It's something that i always wish. I wonder how i would do. But you had a unique experience. Let just for the sake of our listeners. Your naval aviator right. You eventually started flu wing. How long have a perspective here. What year was that yes. We'll jump in the way back machine. A graduated from the university of florida in may of two thousand I immediately went up. To pensacola started flight. School you're familiar with this track You made my way through Through flight school and then ended up finishing in may of two thousand. Two's almost exactly two years of flight school which is relatively quick Yeah i had a lot of A lot of wait times like six Wait six months. then i'd start a phase. Wait six started phase so it took me a while. Yeah i was really grateful to be able to go through that quickly to i think And your instructor. If i recall correctly i mean one of the things. That's so important. When you're learning a new skill or a trade or a job or task is just repetition over and over and as you work towards those ten thousand hours right and You know being able to go through flight school. That quickly meant that. I was flying almost every day. I was in a simulator almost every day. Sometimes twice a day and You know being a middle of the bell curve kind of blue collar pilot. Like i'm in a career of repetition important so yeah long. Answer your question but i got winged in two thousand and two. Okay good yeah so that you're about eleven years ahead head me or eight years. I got winged and yeah ten years ahead of me winged in. I wanna keep doing this math. I'm like my head's about to explode anyway. I'm old you're not so that's the whole thing that it came up with so you get and you fly the ea six right. And so you're you're flying to that and eventually transition to the e. Eighteen growler super hornet and eventually took command right. And so. when did you so this is interesting. So when did is this your first command and when was this. When was your first command. Yeah so you know the navy. Does things a bit differently than Some of the other services particularly army and the marines where he will have a platoon commander for our company commander the navy Typically there are a few exceptions with some of the small ships but The navy typically reserves its first level of command at the level In the marine corps. In the army as lieutenant colonel battalion command in the navy at squadron command of a squadron commanded on the aircraft side or it could be on the ships a destroyer Nope yes this is. My perception commands I took command having been in the navy for. I think the eighteen year mark

How do we learn to be empathetic?

"Hello saadia. I'm doing as well as can be expected. Which is my pat phrase for this entire year. How are you think. It'll i might i might steal it and i'm i'm good. Yeah i i would say. I can't complain. But i definitely can. But i won't fair enough. Why don't we start this discussion. Because i honestly had not thought of the scope of This cohort can give me a sense of how large the second gen population is in canada. Yes so from the last census which was twenty sixteen. So we'll have better numbers soon. We know that there are six million Second gen canadians and thirty. Seven percent of those under fifteen second on in two thousand sixteen th. That's a really large numbers. So i think it's really gonna change our country in increasingly profound ways and maybe quickly just because we're gonna use this term a lot can you Explain for census purposes. At least what does it mean to be. Second jim sure is actually like people get really confused about this. A first generation some people being first generation is like if you're born in canada your first job but you're actually second generation so if if you immigrate to canada your first generation canadian and then if you're born in canada your second generation canadian and then there's kind of like this in between generation which is one point five so like for instance I'm actually one point five gen whichever this whole piece of being second dreaded. I realized i'm actually one point five so one point five news. You weren't born in canada but you were essentially raced in canada. So in my case i was born in karachi but my parents canadian my sister. My older sister was born canada and then we moved back to canada when i was two years old so like had a second gen experience but from a counting point of view. I don't think it would be counting a second gen for those of us who haven't experienced it firsthand or even maybe haven't had a really close friend or relative That's grown up. That way. can you just maybe give me a sense of some of the experiences that second gen kids are likely to have as they grow up. I know you describe a few in your piece. Yeah so. I think it's really dependent on your parents are very on race and class and other factors and i think i can speak to my own experience in you. Know the generation that i'm in mid thirties. My parents are a little bit older than most. Most people's parents around me for instance that i think that also impacted my experience in terms of when they came over. My dad came over in his late. Twenty s and my mom came over in her mid twenties and the experience for me growing up with my parents and then they had me a little bit later. My mom had me when she was like thirty. Three and my dad was like in his early forties. So for me. There's also a generational gap between me and my parents a little bit especially with my dad and not kind of factors into cultural things but maybe not everybody necessarily has that kind of gap. But i think some of the things you experience Are just seeing. Your parents treated differently than you. And i think that's the thing as a child you become very acutely aware of that. For instance we're talking about race a lot and that's definitely factors into a lot of these kinds of conversations but for instance. I think like having an accent is something we don't always talk about. And you can see when you have an accent and we don't have an accent the difference and when i say don't have an accent i mean don't have a canadian accent. This is a very so even in the way. I speak about it. It's very biased. Right so my parents don't have the canadian accent and you can immediately see how someone will treat them differently than someone with a canadian accent. And i think that like as a child. There's also embarrassment related to that right like you're embarrassed that your parents have an accent. You're embarrassed that you know it. My mom ran out in the sea close to get from the grocery store that would embarrass me because it was just like this marker of difference so there's all these markers of difference and you kind of immediately absorb how the world around you treat you as a result of those mark present difference It does i mean. I don't have that experience unless you count My father being a dedicated hippie folk singer and just looking weird to all the other kids at school But it's not the same thing out what goes through your head when you're young child and you know you start to realize those things like do you remember when you began to realize that that your parents spoke with an accent that you didn't have or war different close than your friends parents and and and how do you work with that in your head. How do you process that experience. Well it's funny. Because i actually like. I grew up in markham ontario which is actually the most stem diverse place in canada's over me most of my friends parents were actually from either a similar background or just also an immigrant background like the vast majority of them so but but it was still in a way. It wasn't like the difference between my parents and my friends parents. It was more like my parents. And what i saw like saved by the bathroom. It's like this idea of what's normal. And i think we all can can kind of relate to that like the idea. What's normal on tv happening in your own for what's gonna make or what's happening in real life and i think when you're second genesis sort of amplified in a bit of a different way because there's more of a cultural disconnect and so i never noticed. My parents had a different accent. With than me. For instance. I think it was something like that was just the truth. You know it's just something. I grew up with and felt very

Pakistan International Airlines flight 8303 Crash Data

"Let's start first with the Pakistan International Airlines crash that crashed on Friday the day that the last podcast came out so the twenty second of May early morning our time. About midday in Karachi, the aircraft had flown from Lahore and was bound for Karachi and conducted one approach, and then attempted to go around and crashed during. That attempted go around the information. The data that we've received from the aircraft was not aid. ESP, so unfortunately, there's no bazillion information included, but we did get a lot of extended mode s data from the aircraft, so that has provided a great deal of incites, things like altitude indicated airspeed, true airspeed, vertical rates, and things like that from everything I've seen. This just didn't look good. Yes, so we the authorities and I think that the French have taken the lead on the so far have recovered both the flight data recorder in the cockpit. Voice Recorder and have taken them back to France. They transported it I believe in Eighth HR. Thirty eight hundred neo yet is an interesting little bit of information. Do it that as you will. But they transported that back to believed to loosen, they were able to successfully download the contents of both recorders. which if you've seen the pictures of those is always. that. They're able to get anything off them because they look absolutely terrible I mean they they are. They're literally designed to be crashproof at, but it's always amazing that they really are in almost every circumstance now readable, and that's no exception in this case, but the data that was pulled from the extended. Mona's painted a not so great picture. They came in fast. They came in steep. It was not a stable approach. That's what the data is telling us. We're not making any conclusions, but the initial data does not look very comforting that. I'll leave it at that. We can say that for sure. The indicated airspeed Four for the aircraft on the first approach. Did Not. Go below two hundred dots on the first approach, and only went below two hundred knots when the aircraft was already conducting its go round after the go around was initiated, the aircraft lost power in the engines, and that is what led to. The that that's the direct would directly resulted in the crash. There's evidence based on markings on the runway. The aircraft did in fact touched the runway without its gear down, but we're still waiting for all sorts of. Additional data from the flight data recorder to to really understand what happened. Obviously, this is like any crash. Investigation will take a significant amount of time. And there won't be a final report for for. We'll say a year or so, but a preliminary report should be forthcoming in. Hopefully we'll learn more there. Yup So we'll say has always say we'll keep you updated as we hear am. I believe we'll have some sort of initial fact-finding report within the next week I. Think I think that's what they've said didn't it will see what happens at that point? Interesting to know some some of the finer details, hopefully that reporters issued speaking of keeping updated on things that happened something we talked about I. Don't know how many episodes ago, but this was in twenty, eighteen, the very serious incident with a session airlines, a three nineteen, where the first officer was rather severely injured because the right windscreen. Disintegrated came out, and and the the first officer was partially sucked out of the aircraft. That's a bad day. was a very bad day. And the final report by the safety branch of the Chinese. Aviation Commission. came out this week, and so the final investigation pointed to the likely cause as a long chain. Of tiny things going wrong that led to the windscreen shattering. So there's a power supply wire that runs underneath the windscreen to to keep the windscreen. To supply power to the windscreen heaters. And there had been a gap opening up that allowed water vapor to enter the wire. You know eventually corroded because of the the water, and so there was a power. Being arked off of that and the temperature caused the. Eventual rupture of glass when that enough the pressure changes enough and the window blows out and the first officer also blows out in this particular case, a partially bows out. Yeah, so was managed to stay mostly in the aircraft. And received medical attention when when they landed will link to the report though it. Yet good luck reading it. If you don't Speak Mandarin, you might have some trouble reading. We're going to try and track down in English English translation to put showed to if possible, but will link to to report nonetheless so yeah. We've always talked about you know. It's always a chain of things. It's never just one thing that causes an accident in the certainly was another example of that.

"I remember getting to Karachi and Sunday. Everything changing the tension was lifted like literal weight was lifted. Often asked to how did we survive? Why did we survive because the train the previous train which will booked on from Delhi to Karachi and my mother just insisted? She said, no, I'm not taking the train. I need to buy some food for the journey, and lintels or whatever. And my father argued with he said, we've been not be able to get any place on the next train is critical leave. And she insisted and then he agreed and on, he would say this was a woman's into Shen being complement to our mother hand. What she did was she literally saved us because that entire train, all the passengers would then kill the slotted. I was fall and that literally my first memory and it left to deep impression on me as to why there would be so much hatred in people that they would want to both my bed nets and the siblings and myself. I've been back to its subsequently over the is one of my earliest essays at been home school. I was at boarding school. And I remember writing an essay, I must have been in the junior Cambridge, which is the equivalent of high school. It had description of a train compartment. And I described it as, as a cost Guetta death. Gos- Catta, a cylinder debt and the teacher, one of the fathers mocking the S his hit this avai striking image at vegetated from and I wasn't sure guy just used it in Ovid's stayed in my mind and then over the as I am constantly having a sort of dream. Not really nightmares but dreams of being a train, and there's another train moving at great speed and bosses me by my whole family in that train, and I feel help us, I feel my arms and ex-con to move have a cell phone, which doesn't work, but the message of the, the dream is that the other train just speeds by and I'm then stranded on my own without any communication with the entire world. And survey lonely feeling. It's only now in hindsight. Look back, and I feel like God, that is the experience. I lived through the same experience that I had my Hindu colleague, had inverse, which means her family was escaping from Pakistan to India and the same same sort of tension. Same sort of problems logistics, how you get out what you take with you. Who do you trust all the same issues she faced? And she was also a young girl than men. I was doing my piece in, in London at soya's I met her and at that time, a handmade very many Indians, and when we became friends, we began to swap stories and joke about each other's cultures. And, and she said, you know, that we were told it if you ever see a snake and the Muslim, you actually kill the Muslim, I because the Muslim is more dangerous more venomous than the snake an ice mileage. She said, why he's smiling as I said, I've heard exactly the same story except in my story to seek. The Hindu whatever and we both smiling, realize it. I experienced were like a a when when human relations break down to that level. These stories assume a far greater importance of their magnified inflated, and they in a sense, personify the behavior of the other, and that is very dangerous. It's interesting, you say that because I'm Pakistani, I grew up in Karachi, and I moved here. When I was twelve and I have never had negative experiences with Indian people are Hindu people, but I do feel somewhere deep down like this, this bias, it's so bizarre. You know, like I am so surprised as 'cause my partner is Jewish like, I'm very accepting and living that lack of hatred in my life in a lot of ways. But at the same time at like, I have this thing even though you live through this, like really time you didn't. You didn't feel that be ideas ahead the images. I had from the discussions, so my claws fellows from the people, I met about inducing, six vague negative. So I had to overcome that. In fact, wonder stand who these people were widely hated us why we hit to them, and that is when I met by Indian print, many as later in London, where really began to understand these people very much. Like us and in a sense experienced exactly as what we had experienced. So when I became adult and understood some of these different permutations and combinations of human relations, I began to get very involved in what's called interfaith understanding interfaith dialogue. And I began to ask questions and began say the people I meet a friend EBay, normally just like us. They just like me. So what keeps them away from me is my lack of understanding? I own prejudice on my own. Ignorance
