is connected to a machine that makes drinks

Not exactly sure what this means. Sign
language gestures producing sweet and
bitter drinks depending on the music?

— hospital advocate for the deaf

A hospital has just hired a deaf person as
advocate for deaf patients. Sorry, this
hospital is not in USA, but in Canada –
the Health Sciences North in Sudbury,

Deaf Advocate, then American hospitals
could also do the same!


— the deaf as an airline passenger

Airlines (Delta, Frontier, Southwest, United, etc)
do not permit deaf passengers to sit in the exit
rows due to emergency issues. If a deaf person
is “accidentally” placed in the exit row,
he will be moved to a different row. Even
hard of hearing passengers cannot sit in
the exit rows either. This topic was posted
in a facebook page.
