Texans Owner Cal McNair Used Anti-Asian 'Slur' During Golf Event

"The owner of the Texans. Cal mcnair used a racist slur at a charity golf tournament back in May. I thought, oh gosh, what did he say? What do you mean? What does that mean? Headline Texans owner Cal mcnair used anti Asian slur. During team golf event, this happened back in May. Cal mcnair wrapping up his remarks with according to a report at bally sports using a racist slur. And I'm thinking, gosh, that's tough. That's hurtful. That's hateful. One witness told a reporter, Michael silver, everyone gashed. Especially the people directly across from him. He and his wife seemed to think it was hilarious. It was dead silent. And then the article goes on to list scandals that his father had been involved in. His late father, who evidently used the phrase, you can't have the inmates running the prison. Referring to player protests about police brutality. I use that expression all the time. You can't have the inmates running the asylum. You can't have the inmates running the prison. I never thought of that as a slur. Or an attack. Certainly not racist. It's an expression that we've used for everybody uses. But back to Cal mcnair, I'm thinking, what did he do to use a terrible name to call you some racial horrible, you know, attack? Here's what he said. In fact, if you're driving, you might want to pull the car over to the side of the road. Because this is awful. You're going to be so shocked. At this monster, Cal mcnair, the owner, of the Texans, you're going to be so mortified, you're going to want him to be lose control of the team. You're going to want him to be incarcerated. I think incarceration is the is so egregious. It's so awful. It's so horrendous. I mean, even a New York newspaper calling this a racist slur. And when you hear it, it's worse than you think. Here's the quote, addressing a crowd of over a hundred. Over a hundred people, gasping. Fainting. Vomiting. Being taken away in the hospital, the hospital, they were so offended by this monstrous villainous evil racist named Cal mcnair. What did he say? Get to it Gallagher? He said, I'm sorry, we couldn't get together last year because of the China virus. That's it.

Mathematics and Logic Are Founded on Faith

"Angels it folks I'm talking to doctor Michael gillan. The new book is believing is seeing a physicist, that's Michael. Explains how science shattered his atheism and revealed the necessity of faith. Michael it's brave of you in many ways to be talking about faith and science the way you do because so many people in the world of science are either openly and illogically hostile to discussions of faith or they are like many people simply afraid to open their mouths. And so they stay quiet and they contribute to the problem by being quiet. So thank you for all the books you've written and for what you do and say, and thanks for the new book believing is seeing. You mentioned mathematics in the book. Obviously, math is not a science, but they bear on one another. What do you say about math in the book? Math is the queen of the sciences and it is widely perceived to be solidly founded on logic and has nothing whatsoever to do with faith. So if of all the sciences, physics, biology, astronomy, mathematics is generally perceived, and it's a misperception, but it's generally perceived as being 100% faith free. And in this chapter that I call having faith in mathematics, I explained that even mathematics and even logic is founded on

Author Michael Guillen: We're Able to Perceive Things Not Visible to the Eye

"Folks I'm talking to Michael gillan, who's a scientist, who's written a book called believing is seeing a physicist explains how science shattered his atheism and revealed the necessity of faith. So you were just saying Michael gill really extraordinary experiment. They separate the connection between someone's left hemisphere and right hemisphere. And then they ask them, what do you see, cover up one eye? What do you see? Whatever. So the first time they cover up the right eye, and I'm sorry. The first time we cover up the left, which means you had it right. The first time they showed the picture of a frying pan to Joe, the split brain patient, they showed it to his right eye, which means that was being the image was being processed by the left hemisphere. And he had no problem identifying and naming it. He's a friend. Okay. Okay. Then sometime later, you know, they were jumping jumbling all these pictures. They showed that same frying pan image to his left eye, which means the image was being processed by the right hemisphere. And guess what? He said, well, I don't see anything. And the said, what do you mean? You don't see anything? No. And then they said, then they said to him, okay, close your eyes and draw the first thing that comes to your mind. So the guy closes his two eyes and draws, guess what? A frying pan. So what that indicates to us is that we're able to perceive things that are not visible. We're able to perceive things that are invisible to the eye. And that is where I start exploring the nature of faith because if you think about it, faith is all about seeing or perceiving truths that we can not see or prove in any or even imagine.

'Believing Is Seeing' Author Michael Guillen on How Science Led Him to God

"Science. It's nothing less than astonishing. When you realize that the idea, most of us have heard in our lifetimes that faith and science are at odds, is not even slightly true. It is in fact the opposite. It's hard for us to shift our paradigms. But we need to, as I said, I write about it a lot in my new book. But a friend Michael gillan, we've had him on before, has a new book out on the very same subject called believing is seeing. He's a real scientist. Michael gill and welcome. Hey, Eric, it's so good to see you again, my brother. Looking forward to our conversation. It's great. It's great to see you and to talk to you. I love talking about all this stuff, especially with somebody who knows about it the way you do. You really came to faith later in life. You had been hostile to faith. And now you're writing books, explaining to people that faith and science are friends and that this is a lie that they're at odds. In the book you talk about how the latest discoveries in neuroscience physics astronomy, mathematics. Point to faith in many ways. Talk about that because I mean, what do you mean when you say neuroscience? I'm not even sure, do I know what neuroscience is? Signs of the brain. Yeah, yeah. It's a study of the brain and, you know, I remember when I was at ABC News, I did a story on the Harvard brain bank, which is the largest repository of human brains. I think in the world, certainly in the nation. So I went there. It's Ian Massachusetts, not too far from Harvard. I was also teaching at Harvard at the time, so it was convenient for me. And I remember being able to hold, they allowed me to hold a human brain in my hands. And even to this day, Eric, it was just a really weird feeling to think, you know, this is the essence of what we call humanity, if you will. Never mind discussions about soul and the spirit. I mean, this is where our personalities. This is where we reside in this two, three pound brain. And the human brain is made up of two hemispheres, the right and the left. And a lot of studies have been done on that. And I talk in the book about I think it was in the 70s when scientists physicians started treating patients with epilepsy by severing the corpus callosum, which is the cable like it's a very thick cable of nerve fibers that connect the two hemispheres. And what they found was that when they, when they cut the two hemispheres, when they separated the two hemispheres like that, the epileptic seizures stopped. Not entirely but to a great degree. But there were some interesting side effects. And that's what I deal with in the book because ultimately I connect that research to my exploration of faith. It's a little bit complicated and we couldn't do it justice here, but I will say this much that when you when you look at these what we call split brain patients, these are patients whose hemispheres have been separated. They there's a lot of interesting side effects. For example, why quote one woman who goes grocery shopping, she's a split brain patient. And she finds that the two hands when she's reaching for groceries or putting groceries in the basket, they fight one another. And what I explain in the book is that what we've discovered from split brain patients is that our two hemispheres are basically at war with one

Why Does Gen Z Believe Leftist Garbage?

"Welcome back to one on one with me, Sebastian, and amala E. So, you are at the forefront. You are probably the newest national personality for this amazing institution that is pragya university. Will you tell us a little bit about first because you're in the trenches? Will you tell us why? Generates, what are you Generation Z, what are you? Yeah, I am. Okay. So why does Gen Z? Believe all this garbage. Break it down for us. Is it just the schools or tell us how they believed what you believed? I think it's a multitude of things. I think schooling is really important. I think that's a big part of it now, although it wasn't such a big part of it when I was younger, but the rise of CRT, critical race theory and DEI, diversity equity and inclusion is particularly putting young people at risk to believe this sort of ideology. But I think more so than that. It's social media and mainstream media. What they do is they pull these emotional stories. I'll talk about it in my case, things like tamir rice, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, the police brutality narrative. I was inundated with that narrative by mainstream media and by social media. And of course, you hear these harrowing stories of abuse. And so you'll like a post talking about how Michael Brown was shot and killed for being black and suddenly that's all you see on your social media feeds. And the big tech overlords are cognizant of that. They're pushing this sort of ideology to young people and everybody on their platforms. So I was getting it from social media. I was getting it from mainstream media. And then I had the brilliant combination of also getting it from my mother at home. And it didn't matter how successful I was as a young black female. I went through school. I was valedictorian of my high school. I worked a job after school. I started my own club at school. I got all these scholarships. I was inquired by Yale to go to Yale. And yet you would have asked me and I would have told you, I'm a press because I'm a black woman in America. And it's because these emotional stories that do not speak to a larger truth or a larger systemic pattern are so pervasive and they're able to cut through actual logic and reason when it comes to young

"That. Now I want to go to a Jen Psaki whopper yesterday. And were you in the press room yesterday? Yes. Okay. Do you know what I'm going to get? I don't know. Okay. It is cut number 17. You comment on reports that China has saved a nuclear capable hypersonic missile over this summer to the surprise of your professional as accurate and raised concerns about Chinese people's capability. I know general secretary Austin, I should say, was asked this question this morning and addressed it. But I'm not going to comment on the specific report. I can say echo what he said, which is generally speaking, we've made clear our concerns about the military capabilities that the PRC continues to pursue. And we have been consistent in our approach with China. We welcome stiff competition, but we don't do not want that competition to veer into conflict. And that is certainly what we convey privately as well. We welcome stiff competition, caught the eye of every person who follows nuclear weapons and especially hypersonics, Michael scheer. Did that sound like a clunker off of your ear when you heard it? Yeah, it did. I mean, you know. Welcoming stiff competition is what you normally think of in terms of perhaps development of consumer technology or something that doesn't have national security implications. It's hard to imagine the administration truly welcoming stiff competition when it comes to development of nuclear weapons or advanced advanced deployment systems of nuclear warheads. I mean, so yes that seemed to me to be at odd way of phrasing that

And one day the Saturday night and I was watching the Michael Moore film going for Columbine. And I started drifting off thinking about the United Nations and how horrific they are and damaging they are. And why isn't anybody up in arms about it? And I looked over at the screen at the Michael Moore documentary. I thought, what did engaging interesting. Way to convey an idea, this idea of a smart, dark documentary. Now, he may be totally wrong, he's a big fat pig. But hey, you know what? Still, it's a really interesting way of conveying a perspective. So I thought, you know what? I'm going to do that. I literally quit my job. I was sorry, I quit my job on Monday. Start raising money, made a movie called you and me, which was thank God successful enough where a kind of open live doors for me.

I apologize not problem. Date chairman of punchbowl. Get your punchbowl news at punchbowl news dot com check last hour. I played chuck schumer speech. You wrote your assessment of the binding legislative agenda. Did you take into account the impact of the shimmer speech which brosseau told maria barham yesterday has deeply soured the republican caucus. I mean to the point. They don't want to talk to the guy. yeah. I actually don't. They didn't talk much to anyway. I don't find that big. I don't find it to be this positive. I've been through a lot of michael's where speeches what we're supposed to ruin relationships. The fact is the reality is. There's not much cooperation that we anticipate anyway. I think the conventional wisdom is wrong on the democratic side. I think that because mcconnell blinked and this lasts debt limit fight he makes it less likely appoint again And i think that i just i. I don't think the speeches what did it. I mean it's not like we were in a golden era for cooperation. What did you make joe mansion face in his hands and then leaving. We reported at the time that he He used next live instead. It was. I read batting. Yeah i can't remember exactly what it was I think listen. I think i am the cynic here is you know hugh i think. Being against schumer is beneficial for him. But i do think. Joe manchin owns chuck schumer in a way In the sense that he can't get anything done. Schumer can't without joe mansion so You know what mansion said In in many respects was right that if you want to have more progressive agenda you don't have to worry about joe manchin so like progressives to the senate you know and i think that's the reality of it now. Can i explain to you. My theory of what happened last week. I think mitch mcconnell one. Even though people think he lost. I think he intended people think he lost so that he could win. In december he could not allow the debt crisis right now so he waited and waited and waited extended it till december and he will allow it in december. Couldn't allow it now. It might have the reconciliation going to a higher number now. The democrats have to work out their reconciliation and if they do they're going to have passed trillions of dollars in spending and they're gonna have to borrow for it to reconciliation to get your take ship sherman. I don't think that yeah i mean. Listen i i think that he. I don't think that he won or lost. I think this was kind of a stupid fight with an. It's now it was a stupid deal. That really screws over everyone involved. I mean i agree with you. He couldn't have a he could not afford to have a default And he did. In the only the i guess i would say. He won. Because schumer's main argument against reconciliation and lifting with reconciliation was that he didn't have time that was schumer's made argument yao He can't make that argument. So i i and i hear that I do hear that. There's a lot of anger in the republican conference. Though i mean. We can't underestimate that On what mcconnell. There's no movement to get rid of them that silliness that is coming from whatever wherever trump. We're getting that from. Oh you mean getting rid of mcconnell not not a not a chance

"I think it's up to the provider to really delve into that. When we're doing our general overview during our follow up appointments with each other so many times that may be helpful is i asked about two different things. The on times. The disconnect the wigley movements How you feel when you when you feel your medications kicked in and then i typically ask You know what are your off. And many people have difficulty telling exactly what they're off may be very nebulous. It may be something that they don't they can't really describe so What i usually ask people to to do. All the family members as saying a make a motor diary and and kind of make a very quick bullet points of what happens through throughout the day. Both the extra on symptoms of wigley movements in the potential awesome Increased stiffness slowness trimmer. If the patient really doesn't have as much insight into these potential off symptoms a lot of times. I will ask the caregivers of the family to say. Do you notice when this win. The you're feeling member your loved one is you can tell when they're ready for their next dose. And if you say yes then. I asked okay. How do you know that your family member is ready for their next does. Do you see it in their face do you. Do you see them become more anxious. Do you notice that. They are more stiffened more slow. And then how long does that occur before dose. Because that can help with us really pulling out and recognizing what an awesome may be and then potential a management options. We can go with from there. You mentioned discontinue a couple of times. Can you help define that for people who were familiar with that. Yes so when We mentioned a disconnect as these are basically extra non purposeful movements that can occur when we see that our patients are really we call on their medication on so not just improvement of tremor stiffness and slowness but it can almost as the liba doper Replacement can overshoot what you need and so it can be a Kind of a shifting of the head the shoulder the arms and legs. That's not usually when it's very mild. It's not bothersome. To of the person experience it is experiencing but their numbers can notice that the person appears to be restless when it really becomes a more of an issue is when it it. It's a definite When it keeps someone from walking or engaging in the activities that they wished to do from day to day. I'm so that's what we define as a as a disconnect asia. Okay as sonya out your physician and you're somebody who with parkinson's so you've seen both sides of the coin here. How would you advise people to talk to their doctor about this. But i do agree with doctor. Ause that the clinician needs to ask questions. But i also think in this disease in particular knowledge is power sufficient after become educated about what the terms of. They're going to be using what information they need to give to the position. Such as when they're disconnect. What does that mean distant when telling what that means on-off what that means because your clinician is gonna base their management decisions on based on what they see but also what you tell them so all the symptoms that i'm dr mentioned a very important in relation to the time of your medications because sometimes you can get to tonia when you're up when you're on and sometimes you can get disconnected the other way around to the rarer than the normal but they still can happen so that kind of time line of your symptoms versus when you're taking your medication is really important and rick..

I am co founder and secretary and treasurer the peanut vendors on the executive director return parkinson's and author of the book perseverance and the winner of season one of raising mentioned that one for sure. But the what we working on together as the pdf vendors. The pandur is is really a nonprofit lead organization working with the michael j. fox foundation and over fifty parkinson's organizations worldwide to build a global alliance to end parkinson's disease. We also have more than thirty seven hundred individuals from seventy countries worldwide. Who signed up to be pedia vendors and and we talk about the bedia vendors and the people are like. I've heard this over and over to there's so many organizations. How do we know what they are. Which is why we're here today because we want to introduce you to some of the other organizations mean. You're absolutely right larry. We can never have enough. People helping people parkinson's live a better life and searched for a way to end this disease. I mean if you think better parkinson's was identified more than two hundred years ago and since then we've done a lot of humanity is put men on the moon. We've eradicated polio. We've changed hiv from a death sentence to a chronic illness. We've mac human genome and discovered thousands of galaxies among the stars and yet the gold standard treatment for parkinson's disease is a fifty year old medication. It's it's older than we are.

"That gives me great great hope lacquer ties into my last question is this is a pity vendors. Tako takeover the foundations. Podcast why did foundation agree to partner with pd inventors. Well i think there's you know if you think about what it really takes to succeeding you. It's it's folly to magin that one organization is is going to be you know is is the one and only organization that needs to exist to make this happen. I mean just by step whole back and think of one subset of needs which is better treatments there. There are three big entities just in that part of the space. There's government funding in early stages in academia there's fox funding which is highly strategic that is bridging on a basic science. And teeing it up for in the translational space to get it into the clinic at We often our funding in phase. One a little bit face to even and then there's pharma and that's that's before that's just to get a drug approved. Then you have other entities that need to get it to to patients and make it give accessible and affordability so you you. It's just folly to imagine that any success is gonna come by a single entity. And when i think of the role that a lot of Patient organisations way it. It's really Critical for us to reach as far as we can and so working with smart people who are motivated who seek who want to be informed and want to figure out which of these things i can do to really make a difference. We need those kinds of partnerships. And so it it. It's a no brainer. So debbie We gotta get michael. Decide up a pdf venture. So how are you gonna help us do that. Well you know i. He's he's what everybody in spirit on these things and it's just you know it's really. It's a stunning thing for me. To have seen over the years. How many tugs come on his shirt and you know and to remind folks. He's had parkinson's now for thirty years. And so you know. I said before. Everybody can't do everything. And i think it's fair to say he's tunnel bot and let him pick what he's gonna do but please no he's with spirit and we're here and and so I think If you want a role model for an adventure is the original. We're standing on his shoulders. Appreciate all that. He's done to bring us out of the shadows. I have often said that. That without the michael j. fox foundation we would still be lost somewhere back in eighteen. Seventy and we are so very grateful to all that you have done and what michael has done to literally bring us out of the dark and let people know that we exist out. There's more that we need to thank you. And i know that he he. He takes very seriously that the appreciation of that and he took it very seriously stepping into the role. He thought a lot about He he he wanted to do something but he thought a lot about. What's what's the right thing to do. Where could he bring the most value. I think that's an important journey for anybody who wants to get a gauge. You know it's hard not to be tempted to want to do everything and the at the fox. Why should we really. We work hard on that too. I think part of our strengthened successes come from staying very you know very everything. We do has a connection to the goal of speeding drug development and better achievements and sometimes it may not be so obvious. But i assure you everything we're doing is in service of that and takes every ounce of energy we have and i think individuals there's a. There's a similar herald l. in that kind of process in. Obviously i'm looking at people on on screen as we record this and i see people who have done so many things you know so people can juggle and make their choices. But those prioritization are critical so that we don't isn't that we're rational and sober about where we can make the biggest impact. And and i. I couldn't be more grateful or being the person who happened to be the one that michael at the time and to help him realize his vision but i do think tim that he feels a great responsibility and felt a real opportunity to be part of the community by taking those steps. Thank you thank you. Debbie michael foundation for your passion commitment and dedication to get this done. We really do appreciate appreciate your time as well tonight. Names goodness it's my pleasure. Thanks debbie this. Awesome out one of the things to keep in mind about research and sonia. Tim you can talk about. This too is up. People with parkinson's need to help out. They need to raise their hands and participate Because it doesn't get done without us it is actually true without us. There cannot be any better treatments courage. Assistant work that way. The research community needs to partner with patient community to make that happen. We continue that were important in research so we need to really encourage one another end to ourselves involved in research wherever whenever we can and we're not just about research about research and advocacy and wellness and many of the organizations around the world touch on two or three of those pillars as well The pedia vendors are inspiring change around the world as it relates to research now dundee university in scotland.

"And i had the pleasure. Speaking with her cure. Parkinson's Is an organization that was founded back in two thousand and five by four individuals with parkinson's who wanted to really put some energy behind research into a cure and at that particular time the landscape the research landscape was pretty bleak. A number of big pharmaceutical companies had left left parkinson's just as that drugs were coming off patent. It wasn't making sense for them to be active in the space and there've been a number of studies that hadn't Hadn't been successful. And i think we felt that more needed to be done to really focus the effort towards secure sat impact on the type of research that you now fund very much so the research that we fund is is very much focused on trying to slow down the disease to stop it or reverse it But the re-met for our starch committee who evaluate all our research projects Is that the project needs to in the clinic. That means a phase two clinical trial within five years of funding. Because actually what we want to be able to do. Make a difference to people living republicans. Now what sort of research is on the horizon. for care. parkinson's we have all international link clinical trials program and we walk in collaboration with vinyl receptions. To change each year we pull together a group of ideas With very very strong biochemical evidence on these drug ideas that could move into into clinical trials. It is very active and thriving program with now sixteen trials of ict drugs that are happening around the world. A not all of those funded by us. Some of those are funded by our partners. But for me those meetings. The magic is because we have Partner funders in the room with us but particularly michael j. fox an h also join us partisans. Canada parkinson's uk And and that adds a dynamism but most importantly we will have people living with parkinson's at the table. How do you feel the patients fit into this. Whole clinical trial process. It's feick important. The people with parkinson's are embedded in in all projects. Right from the start. They can really help shape the thinking but also in terms of viability and practicality particularly now as we're moving into an era where a hybrid trials being designed which involves more home visits. We've we've got to be really mindful of making the clinical trial experience for people with parkinson's as positive as it can be and make sure that they feel as if they are very much included in the process as part of the clinical study team as participants not as subjects but as participants proactive participants. On that journey. That that's that's a great way of summarizing I i really think that that aligns with what. Pd ventures is all about as well and speaking of media vendors you've been an extremely supportive encouraging and guiding force for us. Thus far for me pd avenge is is such an important movement. This is about raising the profile of parkinson's nationally internationally and locally the high the profile of parkinson's the greater the chance we will attract government interest and with that government investment and with that government investment. It's not just in the curative research agenda. But it's also in the wellness research that is urgently-needed And i think it is also making sure that parkinson's is on the agenda globally with the. Who with the un you know. People have parkinson's in every country round the world and that health inequality is palpable. It's time that we raise the profile of parkinson's it's time we all work together to do that. Each of us of course have have are in areas especially -ality but we will all benefit if parkinson's becomes a health priority. Hell is such a great advocate and leader and supporter. But we're doing it's great if she's actually the catalyst for what we're doing. She's the one that made the initial call saying. What do people think. That book ending bargains disease. Let's get some folks together dog about he asked. I think we do have to thank for that and you can learn more about your apartments in by going to their website. Parkinson's dot or dot uk.

Just move your body. We'll deferring move on to wellness tim. Michael j. fox foundation has been a major influential player in all three pillars that the pdf ventures have committed to as you may know the michael j. fox vanishes largest private thunder parkinson's research having raised more than one billion dollars in finding innovative and at times high risk researched. So it's my pleasure to be here today to talk. Deputy brooks co founder and ceo than jeff. Welcome debbie and thank you for allowing us to take over the podcasts and yeah so excited to be with you guys today. The foundations are celebrated twenty years. And as a co-founder what stands out for you as it relates to how fox condition came to be sometimes Michael nice standing on the sidelines at a board meeting or at a staff holiday party and we just look at each other. How did this happen. I like i think about it. And i realized with michael especially how could not happen any. He's been first of all before he was kind of out and and connecting in the community and shared his diagnosis had kind of indirectly kind of volunteer by raising his hand. He's known to be warm and inspirational and optimistic. But as you get to know him you also catch very quickly. How why is he is and you know i. It wasn't a shocker. To me that he would be able to bring such gifts to any undertaking on the one hand. There's a part of me. That's not surprised. Because of michael. I before i will. I can't. I can't stress it enough of this. Was the debbie brooks foundation for parkinson's research. We'd be nowhere so there's just no denying it but at the same time There's a magical mix of what What we ended up building at the fox That patient centric passion and the scientific grounding and the business oriented approach that i think has Has delivered some beyond our expectations than so and yet i have to say look at it i think and we are not done yet and there is much more to be doing and i think that's what keeps us engaged and excited and motivated and even.

"Usually the diagnoses is parkinson's disease. Dementia is different. If it's the lou alday dementia or different. I notice i. I do want to mention one aspect here. The everyone have has different opinion while a but that is the genetic stratification is becoming more and more about practice and that is because we are starting to see the advent of therapeutic trials that that ought directed patients who carry specific mutations but along with this knowledge of genetics we are understanding the patients who have different genes associated with parkinson's can have different. Manifestations rights is progress and so there are a number of studies that have identified a genetic predisposition factors that will lead to faster rate of motor to non motor progression. So i want to underscore that. That's an important it's important from the Therapeutics unclaimed with trials. But also we are getting a little better everyday understanding prognosis based on genetics. So this brings to the very potent topic of what can he do. Smooth up tournaments corrosion have cure yet.

"That affected at all by db s. Well so Executive functioning is unfortunately a common feature of arkan's disease. And it's not necessarily something that we looked to be improved necessarily with deep brain stimulation. Oftentimes maybe there are some features of that executive dysfunctioning that can improve with to delve into the extent that those happen. Perhaps there's also a some improvement not with a deep brain stimulation as well but generally speaking. That's not something we expect to change when you think about the long-term profile of patients who have undergone a deep brain stimulation and what they're called Can what can happen to their mission over time. you know. There's there's a small proportion of patients who can have greater difficulties in certain areas in association with the surgery generally speaking over time seeing What we may see parkinson's advance But we're not necessarily seeing advancing as a cause of of doing the deep brain stimulation as far as access to db s is Like most things that i find with parkinson's i'm guessing there's inequities of of access to db s united states and around the world. Yeah so deep brain stimulation first and foremost. I think it's important for everybody understand. It is approved by insurance. It is a well-worked ignites treatment and so It it is something that people who have access to care for their parkinson's and have insurance and things like that. Those those these can should not be barriers for patients to get it. I think what we see are reflective of certain hair patterns in incense disease so we know that places that have large hospital systems or have been disorders clinics or or neurology kerr grams where they see. Large numbers of patients with parkinson's diseases replaces where we're also seeing more deep brain stimulation happening. Now it's going and it's changing and so there are centers or new smaller programs around the country. But i think one of the challenges that i've seen is that if there isn't a place close by that a patient can go issue to get pat db s care becomes harder for them to commit to it and so That sort of the center the whether or not. They're being managed in place that has a regular consolidated care for patients. Those are probably more the factors that we're seeing in terms of patients access to deep brain stimulation now. Some of the studies do show. That patients a certain demographics are less likely to receive that. But i do think that it has a lot to do with how he's a care. Patterns for the underlying parkinson's disease are are situated around the country. Grew dr xu Win we should talk about insurance. What you don't have insurance. Are there other places you can go to help get finance for this imagined brain surgeries not achieve a yeah. That's a really good question. I don't think there are other options out. There insurance doesn't cover it. It's really i think Some some health systems. You might be able to call and kind of talk with them and negotiate. They may have a certain certain assistance program. Said that maybe may be able to help with it but yeah unfortunately. I don't think there's much if you don't really have insurance. Are there other obstacles beyond the financial. People need to consider to getting deep brain stimulation. Activates more like dr shahad said it's the distance from the center. I think is is one of the major obstacles and trying to find a team that can do it for you. That's that's more convenience. What are the do you want to be closed because you still need to get the valid ends the there after you have the surgery. You still have to see that. The technician to adjusted. Eps that has lots of just after the surgery. They are probably they're fairly frequent. Visits where you need to kind of tweak and adjust the stimulation in order to make it better for you and that can take a fair amount of time. After the surgery so frequent visits is important. But also i think As doctor chad mansion a lotta times These tertiary academic medical centers. The university centers tend to have a lot more of the people who are experts in in managing partner disease so they are going to be the places that tend to have a lot more The defense english type programs has been trained. They see parkinson's disease and don't do this whole life It's hard to maintain a program With with good garin holiday quality Surgeons and people helping to manage it If if somebody's considering db s you won't you have to recommend them for that. They're they're movement disorder specialist has to recommend them for the surgery. What how important is the relationship that you have with the patient and how honest they're being with you weigh into that decision lash. I think if if your patience Being honest with your neurologist about your symptoms. I think is very helpful. I guess the example i can think of is i may have patients who come in and i think they they come in and they want to try and present the their best self rights so they may say i may ask how how are they doing. Are they having any problems and they say no things are going really well. And and then i would spouse and they're shaking their head now and then they start talking and then then when you find out. Oh maybe when medication wears off. It can't move a whole lot or they're having problems or more problems than than maybe a patient is leading on And i think that's actually very important just for your general care and parkinson's disease because You know from physicians. If you come in saying things are great. I might just say okay. Well things are great. We're not going to change anything. And then so nothing's actually going to improve for you on. If you lay out your problems that we can at least try and come up with a plan to try and make those those veteran. I think the same thing with the deep brain stimulation after you have it if we're tweaking and you want certain symptoms to be better if we can make better. I can only make a plan if if it's brought up but if you say things are great i'm going to say okay good. We don't need to change anything. Donny jerry ever catch jim great. When you know he's not on. It was always had to go to the doctor with him. Because i knew he wouldn't be honest. About how bad symptoms. If i wasn't there and that that that affects me to we know when the symptoms were worse. So i wanted him to take better care of himself for him and also for me and part of me wonders looking back if none of his neurologists remit recommended deep brain stimulation surgery price precisely. He said you know. I'm doing fine. Everything's fine it was actually a other care partners. Who asked you about why. Didn't hadn't gotten db s already. That triggered the discussion between us and jim looking back. Do you wish you would have been more forthright. Well yeah i mean i know. There's a piece about parkinson's that's no fun to manage. Which is you know you. Can you know there is no cure right. And so part of the defense mechanisms. I bring to that. Problem is to try to put a positive spin. On how i'm feeling or how i'm doing battling the disease so my my optimism wants to carry me across food the finish line but i do think donny's right that overtired. He looked at eye doctor's appointments. I was saying all the good things in holding back or been quicker about the bad things. And so in. That may have lived led them to think i was lu- less symptomatic than i might have otherwise really actually been delayed a recommendation about.

"Oh talking about who should consider getting db s a deep brain stimulation surgical procedure for parkinson's and we'll cover how the procedure works. What someone may expect after the surgery and the latest advancements on this research would through a lot of cool things that are happening in the world. We have a lot to discuss. So let's get started later. Due to our panel today dr kelvin. Chow is the clinical professor of urology at the university of michigan medical school that he is also the site investigator of the michael j. fox foundation landmark studies parkinson's progression markers initiative. Better known as p m i at the university of michigan. He is a researcher and has written a book on db s. Welcome to today's webinar. Tie thanks for having me. Jim nez chief people officer and general counsel at the michael j. fox foundation. He was diagnosed with parkinson's disease in two thousand and had dvd surgery in early. Two thousand eighteen his spouse donald moss and animal rights. Advocate is also here with us today. Welcome thanks and we have dr julie. Hemans shaheed the medical director of the movement disorders neuro modulation and brain circuit therapeutics at the icahn school of medicine. The mount sinai new york. She leads the registry for the events with db s parkinson's disease or our d. dash. Pd talk about more more a little bit later. Let's get started with the questions. What is deep brain stimulation. Doctor she said concert with a doctor pickle. Dr absolutely thanks for having me on this I think deep brain stimulation is a very exciting therapy. It's actually been around for a long time for treating parkinson's disease but what it is is a surgical treatment that is actually the most common surgical treatment used these days to manage parkinson's symptoms. It's like a pacemaker. For the brain. So if you think about a pacemaker. In the heart the wires are in the heart of regulate the the heart circuits But here we have a deep brain stimulator delivers a small electrical current into those deep brain structures that are controlling movements and by doing that. It can really kind of block signals that are associated with some of the symptoms of parkinson's disease tremor and stiffness and certain walking imbalanced problems and when we kind of get that stimulation just right for an individual patient we can see all kinds of improvements in holly just the primary parkinson's symptoms but also some of the treatment complications such as the just caniggia's and the fluctuations and maybe even the tremor that wasn't responding well to medications voter shoe took them specifically does does not help. Yes i think. The best way to think about deep brain stimulation is that it. Actually in most cases helps the symptoms. That are helped by leonova or the medications that you would take and so when people have parkinson's disease and go on for a long longer period of time and are treated with liba they might have what we call on and off states where you take the medication and after about a half an hour medication kicks in and then many of your symptoms improve like the tremor the stiffness lowness blocking problems etc on. Then you're considered a non-state and then maybe before your next dose medication. Wears off. In the tremor stiffness lowness all those types of symptoms. Come back yet. Well a deep brain stimulation basically makes you feel like you're on your on state Throughout the entire day so symptoms that respond to liba are the symptoms that are responding to deep brain stimulation if it doesn't respond to leave bud than in. Typically it doesn't it will not respond to stimulation either. The one exception to that rule is tremor at there are many patients who may have a tremor in which you take high doses of these get without a but it doesn't respond a bendy print stimulation will help. But that's the way about how how help you. Yes so if you have extreme differences between neurons offs and it's impacted by but then you probably are good candidates exactly great now Who should consider db s and win is a good time to get db s. Let's bring in our other guest to jimmy donny. What what may jim good candidate for db s well I would say you know i I had symptoms at responded to methadone. First and second tremor and stiffness and i gay in speed of movement. I say brady can you for short too. And then you know the one made e change or get the surgery wise. I was taking a ton of pills. Day and i was dependent on that wherever i went. I carried my parkinson's medication with me. If i was on a trip or something for work i would always. Have you know medicine with me. All the time and i just wanted to break the cycle of continued dependence on medication and my doctor ridden on my symptomology was Maybe a good candidate so we went ahead with. Also you were the right for. That's who let's talk about that a little bit more. dr should head a sheriff's some more information about the viable candidates. Is there an age limit. Yeah that's a common question that we get. I think that You know generally speaking. They're not as specific as lament forgetting deep brain stimulation with that. The main things that we're looking for our weather patients have had you know as described Were describing the the fluctuations that are up In the refractory tremor But we do know that as people get older they can have other medical conditions and potentially other sort of risk factors that might affect their sort of response to the surgery itself into there might be a different surgical as risks associated with patients who are older and so we do want to make sure that those are all investigated appropriately but there really isn't a strength at age cutoff or one of the symptoms that his bothersome for a lot of people especially with wild pd who are still the work field is is sort of the the. The decline of the executive functioning is.

"Not to dominate. The talk. And at the same time you know not the lead it and don't necessarily again just jump in explore the things that one talk about man and she share because you know the kind of leadership role there. I want the group to feel comfortable and not be dominated by me again. A buddy network allows me to talk to bob the on a conversational level and connected and just i love to hear op stories about his being in trials research trials. Not not. I victim irvine stephanie. Why people sign up for the buddy network. How else would we have connected. A gentleman in florida to gentleman in nebraska indian. I think that their story resonates also apart of the pd community. Mike had parkinson's for sixteen years. I've connected with other loved ones. That have someone that has either as living with parkinson's or his past and built connections with with those people you know it's kind of a virtual young professionals network most of of ways to connect with others and just talk sometimes. It's easier to talk to a stranger than it is your best friend and bob. Melvin said he. He's opened up to to chris about certain topics. And i think the opportunity is there to make these connections to learn more to really take charge of your diagnosis or take care of yourself whether you're person living with parkinson's or you have a loved one with pd. It is a great tool to really give you that power just looking here. Rebel live live in motion. Here the discussion page. Has anybody been on cinema at so. There's that question there was somebody else asking about. I love this question. How do you see yourself in five to ten years do you visualize a healthy. You are compromised. you like.

"That safe opportunity in. Chris mentioned you. Don't give your phone number. You don't give your email it as a safe place to to start a conversation but then if you wanna take it outside of the platform by all means were. We're hopeful that people do a serious question for you. Steph is the woman who's joining every facebook group about parkinson's there who who posts about how she was cured by herbal remedies. How do you keep those people out rate question. I have not seen such a post yet. But as part of that code of conduct that i mentioned earlier we have the right to remove any content or people from the network that are not adhering to that code on that are promoting that they have the magic cure or that they want to try to sell you a product we are in the network every day monitoring we as of capturing key words or phrases that are popping up. And we're definitely taking that seriously. We do not to turn the platform into everybody trying to sell this or or that so Yeah great great question but it is very very important us off again. I think that that's what i found. Is that. It gave me a confidence that i connect to somebody. I'm not gonna just dump. Linda somebody who's gonna try and sell me herbal product. Find that that. I just kind of leave the connection and go while they haven't got my contact information so i i don't need to deal with him anymore. I can come on buddy network. And it sends a powered through the michael j. fox foundation blinked in there and they won't give out my email to my phone number but i can still make connections which is great would have just jumped in one one more thing. Oh sure go ahead. Time of the social network thank follow a couple of facebook feeds and data The buddy network of discussion pages and stuff like that but i. I'm just not a person..

"Now with the social media and with the parkinson's community being you know mostly on the older end of the demographics. I'm sure they're concerned about security in about the being too complicated and so what has the michael j. fox foundation done to make sure that everything is safe and secure. It is safe platform that we have vetted that we are not going to be spamming the community on have to opt into our emails. They'd like to receive them. There is also some you know basic terms and conditions also code of conduct that people sign off on when they are registering. We wanna make sure that it's a safe space that people feel comfortable feel comfortable sharing. There's also a way a first name last name. Email are required to sign up but then you can actually change that name. If you'd to or post things anonymously in the platform If people are not yet out with their diagnosis or still trying to kind of page things little bit you can post anonymously. We're also here to support. So there is info at harkinson buddy network dot org and people can email us We've been answering questions some about the on boarding some people have emailed in and say i signed up. Now what do. I do providing help and support. There's also resources in the network to help people navigate a little bit better and again we're here to support. We wanna make sure that people are having a a safe and supported time in the platform where you mentioned the resources. It's a great connection to the michael j. fox station because oftentimes we'll get emails or whatever but this is it's all in one place so you can go look at some of the videos you can look at some of the resource guides. You can everything that you guys have. And i think you know along with the resources i think everybody that's in the network is resource. There are discussion topics popping up left and right about learning more about db s or. Has anybody tried this type of diet. War i'm thinking about this medication. And i think not only can. We provide mdf resources but the community is providing resources to each other. We do not want people sharing medical advice necessarily but if it's your own experience and what has worked for you and your.

"I consider myself somewhat active bicycle. I run into still employed full time. And i looked to bob to kind of give me the The hope and the The energy to keep going. And i imagine with once you establish you know sort of friendship of buddy ship over the course of six months. You're able to start diving into some deeper topics that's true. I know when i came to the relationship. I felt that i'd be the mentor and help this person down the journey as we got to talking chris very capable to talk to you and we talked about things that i don't talk to the people for whatever reason warmness depression. I just don't talk about it. Because i don't have time to be positive. Keep going him do that. But that's an comfortable almost immediately talking with chris. If be able to talk with that kind of an issue so i became the neater not eight or the needy not the nature so suddenly the butting that became more than just you being able to offer what you know. It's also now serving you absolutely now. That's amazing stephanie. When you hear this story how's that make you feel. I mean this story is is quickly becoming one of many that we're hearing from community members and i remember getting on the phone with bob on the a couple of months ago now and i met this gentleman. We set up a call. He got on the phone and we said okay. Now what do we do. You know blind date style. I guess but. I think knowing where that started this story that like. They're both being able to learn from each other and lean on each other. I think that's what the buddy network is all about. And i'll say one thing when when people are signing up there is not a lengthy but a decent on boarding process to ask specific questions that are It's a set once at a questions for people with parkinson's and other sex for care partners in loved ones. But it really digs into what you're looking to gain from the network and what some of your interests are hobbies are your stage of disease and i think through that on boarding processing within the buddy network. You're able to really filter in meet the right people. This was christie's first outreach to bob and it clicked. That might not always happen. But the buddy network. You're able to really dive into finding that right person or people to make these meaningful connections and we're hearing as more and more people are joining that more people are reaching out and saying hey i connected with someone and we had a great conversation and i found out that we live two miles from each other so these things are these things are happening and it just reiterates how important this network.
