Top stories about the deaf:
The South Korean national assembly will pass a
bill to give rights and needs to the deaf.
Lorne Farovitch, a deaf graduate student at
translational biomedical sciences at the
University of Rochester, has a goal. He
wishes to convert science words into ASL.
An example is converting DNA into something
ASL that the deaf will understand.
Google has been working on Project Soli.
It is based on gestures to help improve
communications, basically among hearing
people. DeafDigest is hoping it would
evolve into a deaf-based version of
Project Soli. Hearing people understand
gestures better than sign language.
Fitness is My Sickness is a gym in the
San Diego area. This business wishes to
teach deaf participants to fully
participate in these exercises the same
as with their hearing peers.
A deaf student won a lottery in India to
be placed at an exclusive school. The
problem was that the school did not have
a deaf education teacher. As a result,
he lost the lottery as the pick was
given to a hearing student!

DISAGREEMENT WITH A SCHOOL DISTRICT
    Many parents of deaf children have disagreements
with the school district.
    An example would be that the parents want to send the
deaf child to a residential school but the district
wants the deaf child to go to a mainstreamed program.
    If you live in Virginia, you may be lucky. The
state Department of Education has mediation services.
    The parent and the district can go to mediation
and hopefully solve this disagreement issue.
    Does your home state have it? Maybe you may need
to find out.

DEAF RUDE TO OTHER DEAF
    An immature Gallaudet student was rude, insulting
deaf people older than he was. He repeatedly insulted
an older female student (who was married with a
family) who returned to Gallaudet to finish up
courses for her degree.
    That student, about to graduate, was looking
for jobs at deaf schools.  At one deaf school, the
husband of that deaf female student, was an
administrator.
    Needless to say, that rude Gallaudet student
didn’t get the job he was hoping for.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Breakfast
I was frying eggs for breakfast.
I always use plenty of pepper on my eggs.
It just happened that my pepper mill was out of pepper corn!
So, I use already ground pepper in a can from McCormick.
I flipped one side open and it poured!
Oh, what a hot spicy breakfast I had!
Lesson learned! I need to feel the top before shaking!
Coffee refill coming up!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
