Top stories about the deaf:

In Bhubaneswar (India) deaf individuals will be taught
how to bank their money and use the banking services.

A student leader at University of Texas gave a suggestion
in an article that to accommodate deaf students, a special
inclusive classroom setting be set up for them – meaning
interpreters and CART and audio devices.

Amy Anderson, ASL teacher at Ocean City High School
(NJ) was praised for reaching out to the community
to try to have the needs of the deaf accommodated.

There is an effort at Utah State University to make
all campus web sites accessible to the deaf.

Businesses dread the “ADA compliance demand”
letter. A consultant has been telling these
businesses to relax and instead of fighting
the Department of Justice, to follow what
the letter asks, be it interpreters or
captions.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

$1.00 PER YEAR SALARY
California governor Schwarzenneger only earns $1.00
per year salary for his job. New York mayor Michael
Bloomberg earns this same $1.00 salary, the same with
governors in Tennessee and New Jersey. And again, the
Ford CEO offered to work for $1.00 per year They are
wealthy and really don’t need the full time salary.
What about the deaf? Do we have rich deaf persons
that would work for just $1.00 per year in salary?
Answer is no!

This week’s ASL video in youtube

8-YEAR OLD CODA HELPS DEAF MAN IN ACCIDENT
Isaac Curry is a 8-year old Coda son of a deaf mother
in Maryland.
There was an accident. A deaf man was hit by a car
and was hurt. The fire department sent an ambulance
to the accident scene, but no one from the paramedics
staff knew ASL.
Isaac saw that the paramedics were struggling to
communicate with the deaf man. He walked to the
group and immediately signed in ASL what the
paramedics were trying to ask the deaf man about
his pain.
Few weeks later Isaac was honored with the
Prince George’s County Fire Department’s
Good Samaritan award. They said he was the
youngest person ever to receive this honor!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

Super Bowl! Many of us who are DeafBlind watch the game,

But we need assistance to enjoy the game by using Touch Signals/ProTactile.

There are so many ways you can help during the game to keep us informed.

When I watch the game alone, I use both TV and computer.

The computer provides me details of moves, downs, time, location in the
field and scores.

Also, many of us post on Facebook during the game to better understand
through discussion.

The list goes on for how we the DeafBlind can enjoy the game just like you.

Now, where are the pizza and beer????

Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
