— mysterious Hong Kong deaf stats

A newspaper story said that 80 percent of
150,000 deaf people in Hong Kong are senior
citizens (age 60 and above). True or not

in Hong Kong, move away to other nations?

— worst Deaf Advertising

Man” is a half-movie, half-game that involves a
character that is deaf. A movie/game critic
said this trailer was the worst ever. A
trailer is important because it advertises
a product – and if the deaf trailer is bad,
would hearing people try out this half-movie,
half-game?

 

— Deaf Art to be displayed at the Capitol in Washington, DC

Anna Wright, who is deaf and from Louisiana, is a talented
artist. One of her works, titled “theme of isolation”
will be displayed at the Capitol in Washington, DC some

at that time, it may be a good time to view the painting.
