Top stories about the deaf:
Times have changed in Europe. Years ago, big European
corporations made donations to deaf and disabled social
service agencies. Donations have become less because
of the investor demands to protect the bottom line.
An agency serving the deaf in St Louis have training
police departments on how to deal with the deaf
during traffic stops. Results have been encouraging.
It was disclosed that the reason for the Pepsi Center
(Denver) refusal to caption their game scoreboard
is because they think there are other options for
deaf fans (interpreters and audio devices). The
management does not realize not every deaf fan
knows ASL!
A Brazilian educator said that while Portuguese
is the primary language, many deaf people do
not understand it.
in Rigo District of Papua New Guinea,
there was a complaint that a deaf man wanted
to register to vote but was not allowed to do so.
He was not allowed even though he met all of the
qualifications for registration! He tried to
register several times and election officials
pushed him away.

INTERPRETING OR NOTETAKING
    Which is better for the deaf person in a
hearing classroom? Interpreter or CART or
notetaking?
    Well. A professor who talks too much in
one hour could equal 50-60 pages of paper.
A notetaker could only equal five or six
pages of paper in one hour.
    But, a student may forget what the
professor said. A student, reading these
notes can remember what the professor said.
    You decide which is better!

This week’s ASL video in youtube
VERY DEAF PERSON IN DEAF WORLD OR IN HEARING WORLD
    There are many “very deaf” people that function
in Deaf World. There are also many “very deaf”
people that function in the hearing world.
    Why? Many reasons such as marrying a hearing
spouse, living in a small town,  rejecting Deaf
Culture, parental choice in placing deaf with
hearing people, etc, etc.
    There is also another possible reason. Some
oral schools for the deaf would transfer some
very deaf, but very functioning, deaf child
to hearing schools. They feel these deaf children
are better off in the hearing world.
    Were these oral schools right? Hard to tell.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Let’s prepare for the July 4th celebration!
Many of us who are DeafBlind will find it difficult to
enjoy fireworks.
This does not have to be, if we get information via
touch signals!
Use Haptics or Pro-Tactile on our back to describe
the fireworks.
Just try to follow the fireworks and the location in
the sky to help guide us to where the flares are!
This will help us enjoy our independence Day!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.

Deaf Elite Athletes:
rookie’s comment about Derrick Coleman (Atlanta Falcons)
part of newspaper story
Despite their competition, free agent QB Tyler Renew said Coleman, who is
deaf, has been one of the most helpful of his new teammates.
“He’s really an inspirational player,” Renew said of Coleman. “He’s deaf
and plays with hearing aids, so to play alongside someone with that
disability who doesn’t use it as an excuse, it’s awesome. He’s one
of the hardest workers on the team, and he and (running back) Devonta
Freeman have been the most helpful to me.
“Derrick has a lot more experience than me. He’s got some savvy and some
tips he gives me. It’s phenomenal and not something you think would
happen. You’d think a guy competing with you might look the other way,
but he’s not like that at all. He’s always there to help me and offer
his hand.”
