— Deaf Chef in the nation’s restaurant hotbed

According to Andrew Zimmern, the famous food host
with Bizarre Foods, the Twin Cities area is
a hot area to try new and different meals. And
we do have a deaf chef in the Twin Cities area
(Minneapolis/St Paul). It is Kendall Kail
who operates his own Ward 6 retaurant
in St. Paul. He worked as chef at different
restaurants for years until he landed his
job at the Ward 6 restaurant. See the picture at:


— Uber again

Where do the Deaf Community stand with Uber? This
company says they want to hire more deaf drivers.
Yet, it is confusing to follow Uber.

1. Uber encouraging more deaf drivers to sign up
2. Uber pushing for self-driving cars
3. Quebec tells Uber they cannot use deaf drivers

$. And today, Uber has announced a partnership with
Canadian Hearing Society to hire more deaf drivers
across Canada.

What is next with Uber? Good news or bad news?


— Comcast joins a Deaf Club

Comcast joining a Deaf Club? Well, it was just
learned that the Comcast CEO has a deaf daughter.
As a result, the CEO has given $25 million
to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
That hospital works with CI children.

Let us look at past “members” of the Deaf Club:

1. Past CEO of a national restaurant chain.
His son is deaf, and he was supportive of
men’s basketball at Gallaudet, as the son
played this sport. When he graduated,
the CEO no longer supported Gallaudet.

2. Past officer of a big Washington, DC
supermarket chain. He has donated a lot
of money to local deaf clubs and deaf
agencies. Not any more, since the father
retired and the son grew up.

3. Big movie star. His son was deaf. He
had nothing to do with the son, but the
wife helped establish an oral school
for the deaf.

So, everytime we see a CEO or a VIP
with a deaf child, it is always interesting
to see what they would do to help (or not)
the deaf!
