Top stories about the deaf:

For some reason the Edwards Air Force base in
California was slow to install video relay
equipment for its deaf employees but finally
got around to it this week.

Dussehra is a big event in Mumbia (India). A large
group of deaf women exhibited their best clothes
in hopes of winning approval from the audience.

A team of researchers in Edinburgh and Manchester
(Great Britain) is studying how the interpreters
interact with the deaf.

A deaf man was fired from his job with General
Rentals in West Virginia. He filed a lawsuit,
claiming deafness was the reason for his dismissal.
This case is in the courts.

New Forest is the name of the play that is making
its tour in Great Britain. One of the performers
is Sophie Stone. She is deaf, the only one in
an all-hearing cast

ANGRY HEARING PEOPLE IN THE ELEVATOR
Happens all the time. A deaf person goes into the elevator with
hearing strangers. They do not know that he is deaf.
They tell him to please press floor 4 or floor 6, etc. The deaf
person doesn’t press the button. Hearing people get angry, thinking
the deaf person is lazy or is a snob.

A WANDERING DEAF MAN
A true story. A deaf man was visiting his deaf family in a
different town.
The deaf man was nervous; a lot of pressure with many problems.
He decided to cool off with a long walk by himself. He walked for
many miles.
When the deaf man did not come home after a long time, family
members were worried.
They contacted the cops. Suddenly the TV news and the newspapers
said deaf man was missing – maybe kidnapped or got hurt or was hit
by car, etc.
Hours later the deaf man came home, and was embarrassed by
all the attention on him for nothing.

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. We have laws protecting the rights and needs of
the deaf. The ADA is a perfect example. Yet why are
we seeing so many deaf lawsuits claiming that ADA
regulations were violated.

A. Many hearing people say they are aware of ADA
but really do not know exactly what it is all about,
and think their anti-deaf actions do not break these
ADA regs!

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

I attended a rally to save Austine School for the Deaf.

It was a very moving event with advance planning for us who
are DeafBlind.

We set up projector screens with the black side toward the audience
to help attendees see better.

We set up a second one for low vision folks with interpreters.

Speaking of interpreters, they all volunteered their services.

There was lots of planning by a few interpreters to be sure
DeafBlind were getting accessible services.

Job well done by Vermont RID for their behind the scenes work!

Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
