Top stories about the deaf:
Corporations have their own customer data base,
which, of course, is a corporate secret. Do
these corporate data bases divulge customers’
deafness – which could be of assistance to
medical personnel in case of Covid-19 cases.
This was an issue brought up in a web posting.
……….
A big concern during the pandemic is that
the needs of the Deaf Community, everywhere
in USA and the world are being neglected.
……….
Do deaf people function well while working from
home? A newspaper story said no!
……..
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued
guidelines for people that return to work.
In the guidelines is protecting the rights
and needs of deaf employees.
……….
Alexander I of Russia, who ruled Russia
between 1801 and 1825, was said to be deaf
according to a historian, doing that article
for a newspaper.

This week’s ASL video in youtube
ASL OR GESTURES
Often we walk on the streets and see someone
moving their hands.
Is it ASL or just hearing gestures? We often
don’t know and watch that person for about 30
seconds to make sure which is he – deaf or hearing!

This week’s ASL video in youtube
SOME BANKS ARE AFRAID OF THE DEAF
    This is a true story; a deaf person went to a bank
and gave the teller a note.
    The teller got scared and pressed the “bank robbery”
button to alert the police.
    The police came to the bank, looking for the bank
robber. The teller pointed to the deaf person.
    It was realized that the deaf person was not a
bank robber but wanted to ask the teller a question
about a banking matter.
    Many bank robbers pass notes to the tellers
demanding money. Not that deaf person!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Covid-19 continues with social distancing.
It is hard for us who are DeafBlind not being able to touch.
This puts us into isolation at home or wherever we are.
We are using group lists on Google groups to stay in touch.
In one group I joined, people are from East coast to West cast on the
list.
I wake up in the morning finding 50 – 75 emails overnight!
The time zones are making it difficult for us to handle.
The group leader decided to limit 15 postings a day,  5 in the AM, 5 in
the afternoon and 5 during the evening till midnight.
This new policy will start Monday.  Let’s see if this will work for us to
stay connected!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
