At a vacation resort in Madh Island, off the
shores of Mumbai, a big attraction is a
Christmas Crib. It has been designed and
built by Anthony Estibero. He is deaf
and a long-time resort employee. Every
year at Christmas time, he works on
the crib – where tourists come to watch
in awe. A picture is at:

Fox, an auto dealership in Michigan, has a sign

signs in these TV commercials. Does it help?
The dealership says nearly ten deaf customers
come in every month to purchase vehicles.
True or a fake claim? Very possibly true!
