Top stories about the deaf:

In Florida, “deaf child” street signs are not available
according to county and state agencies, and that it
was up to private donors to erect such signs!

A deaf man in Nigeria was employed as a security
guard. Discrimination against the deaf is pretty
much bad in Africa, but it did not prevent this
deaf man from getting that job. Good news sometimes
become bad news – he was arrested on charges of
drug trafficking and sentenced to five years
in prison.

The Disability Rights Florida reached settlement
with the Florida Department of Corrections
regarding ADA violations with deaf prisoners
over the years.

A big story on the BBC TV program in Wales was the long-time efforts of Jack Griffiths
who wanted employment in the construction field
but no one wanted to hire him because of his
deafness. After a long time, one construction
company decided to hire him – and everyone is
happy.

A review of Palace Hotel Zagreb in Croatia said
that the hotel is practically the best in all
categories – except for one thing – no
accommodations for the deaf!

This week’s ASL video in youtube

DEAF WOMAN DESCRIBING HER DOG
A deaf woman walks her dog every day
and she is tired of hearing people coming
to her, asking questions about the pet.
She posted a message on her iPhone –
explaining the breed name, the age and
the name of the dog.
When a hearing person comes to her
asking about the dog, she will show
iPhone message. It works all the time!

This week’s ASL video in youtube

BARTENDER PROBLEM WITH CAPTIONS
A deaf person entered the bar, ordered
his drink and asked the bartender to
turn on the captions.
The bartender struggled with the
remote and failed to turn on the captions.
The deaf person offered to turn on
the captions with the remote.
The bartender gave the deaf person
the remote. The deaf person looked at
the remote and found the “cc” button.
He was ready to push the button.
Suddenly the bartender grabbed
the remote before captions could be
turned on.
Why?

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

Important advocacy is in the works here in Vermont!

I have been meeting with a few people to discuss needs for DeafBlind
consumers.

Summer is here but work needs to be done!  SSP services are on the top of
the list.

In order to get funding from the State, we need to advocate with specific
departments.

The budget proposals need to be submitted to the Governor’s office by late
August.

If the State department or Governor’s office doesn’t put funding for SSPs in
the budget,

then I need to switch gears!

I need to prepare for the legislature to return in January-another option
for getting funding for SSP services.

Important tasks need to be done to get this done!

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