Top stories about the deaf:
A clarification re Arizona legislature captioning
its proceedings. It is not the first among all
state legislative bodies. Nebraska has been doing
the captioning since 2016.
A big issue in Kansas is the Kansas State Board of
Education recommendation that one superintendent
serve two schools – Kansas School for the Deaf and
Kansas School for the Blind. The deaf community
wants both schools to have their own superintendents
instead of sharing one superintendent.
Deaf British activists have accused the government
of refusing to enforce laws that were supposed to
give full rights to the deaf.
A British member of the parliament has accused the
government of ignoring the rights and the needs of
the deaf in  pubs, clubs and restaurants, saying
that they all ignore the Disability Discrimination Act
(equivalent to our ADA).
The James Castle Collection and Archive is filing
a copyright lawsuit over the book Allen Say’s “Silent
Days, Silent Dreams.” Much of deaf artist Castle’s works
have been displayed in museums across the world.

DEAF ZOO IN PAKISTAN
Is there a Deaf Zoo in Pakistan?
A silly question, yes! But a hotel in Pakistan has many deaf
employees and there was an advertisement in newspapers and
magazines, asking tourists to come and stay at the hotel.
The ad asks the tourists to watch the deaf in action at the hotel.
This ad is very insulting. The deaf do not live in a zoo.

N INTERNET RELAY NIGHTMARE
This is a nightmare. You have problems with cable internet
service. You contact the cable company through internet
relay to ask for assistance.
The service representative advises you to disconnect
the router and then to reconnect it and to let him
know if it works. It is hard to explain to the customer
service representative that if you disconnect the router,
the relay call is disconnected.
You explain this to him – and he does not believe you
because he thinks you are using the TTY machine to contact
him through the relay!
This is a nightmare.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
This Winter’s weather has pushed me to the gym!
The unstable winter weather has prevented me from snowshoeing!
I need to exercise at least 5 days a week for a minimum of a
half hour each day.
So, with this extreme winter, I signed up for the gym.  A new
gym opened nearby.
I told them since I am DeafBlind, I will need an assistant
such as an SSP or interpreter.
They easily gave me a yes to bring my SSP at no charge
in exchange for supporting me.
Now, let’s see if there will be a new me by beach day!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
