Top stories about the deaf:
The A&E Network will be airing a “deaf program”
“Born This Way” sometime next month.
Israelis and Palestinians both do not get along
with each other. They made it an exception in the
case of deaf Israeli boy that crossed the border
to Palestine. He was picked up by the Palestinian
police and returned to the Israeli police across
the border and eventually returned to his family.
Artificial intelligence (AI) that can lipread
for the deaf. This was the story in the
Science Magazine. Perfect lipreading machine?
DeafDigest does not think so.
The New Mexico School for the Deaf was flooded
and several buildings were damaged. Yet the
school will open on time.
The Byodo-In Temple is a Buddhist temple in
Kahaluu, O’ahu, Hawaii is a popular tourist site.
One of the artists at the temple is Daniel Wang;
he is deaf and originally from China. Many tourists
buy his pieces of art. He was profiled in a newspaper
story.

This week’s ASL video in youtube
THE DEAF IN JAMAICA
    Andrew Gallimore, not deaf, is the director of Labor
and Social Security, a government agency in Jamaica.
    He gave a speech recently during a banquet with
factory owners and manufacturers. He said that
the deaf are the best employees because they are
not bothered my factory noise and they do not
waste time gossiping with other hearing employees
and do not also waste time talking on the telephone!
    He wants the manufacturers to hire the deaf.

This week’s ASL video in youtube
APPLE HATES GOOGLE; NAD HATES CBS !
    Apple and Google both compete against each other
and they both hate each other.
    But there were some important issues that Apple
and Google had to discuss. As a result, the CEOs of
Apple and Google met at a coffee cafe for a meeting.
They met at coffee cafe which is a neutral location
since Apple CEO won’t go to Google office, and the
Google CEO won’t go to the Apple office.
    Did it happen to the deaf, in the past? Yes,
in 1980, CBS refused to close caption their programs
for the deaf. The deaf from all over USA had
protest rallies in front of CBS offices in big
cities.
    The CBS vice president wanted NAD CEO to come
to his office in Washington, DC to discuss it.
The NAD CEO refused to come to CBS office; the
CBS vice president refused to come down to the
street to meet with NAD CEO.
    As a result, the protest embarrassed CBS.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Normal people have 5 senses, sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch.
Deaf people have 4 senses and DeafBlind people have 3 senses.
Myself being DeafBlind, I can figure out who is sneaking by me!
Recently my adopted daughter passed by me through the hallway without
touching me.
I felt the breeze from her passing by!  I can tell who is near me with
smell of their perfume/scent!
However, this practice is not the best way “humanly”.
We prefer you tap us and just say who you are and pass by.
That is a simple way to reduce our frustration.
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
