Top stories about the deaf:

In Nigeria, approximately 300 angry deaf people
stormed the office of a local government, demanding
to know why their benefits were cut off.
Security people shot their guns in the air to keep them away.

In Vermont, Barb Prine, a lawyer with Vermont Legal Aid’s Disability Rights Project said that her
clients have had problems dealing with
the University of Vermont Medical Center.

In North Carolina, the sheriff’s deputies of
Guilford county are learning sign language
to better communicate with the deaf.

Activists in Guam are complaining that
classroom interpreters are treated as
teachers’ aides – resulting in lower
pay for these sign language skills, and
pushing away future interpreters in
the classrooms.

A South African newspaper praised the
Carlson Rezidor Hotel chain for hiring
the deaf at all of their hotels.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

A SPEECH WITHOUT A PRINTED COPY
In 1966, there was a surprise visitor that came to
the Gallaudet University graduation ceremony.

The surprise visitor was president Lyndon B.
Johnson. No one knew about the visit – not even
the Gallaudet president or the White House.

Johnson arrived at the graduation and immediately
went on the stage to give a speech. After the speech
he left Gallaudet.

Where is the printed copy of his speech? The
Johnson Library archives does not have it. The
Gallaudet archives does not have it.

A big mystery!

This week’s ASL video in youtube

DEAF FEEL COLD AIR DIFFERENTLY FROM HEARING
Do deaf people feel cold air differently
from hearing?

Seems deaf people have to feel the cold
air while hearing people “hear” the cold
air?

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

Summer tends to be vacation time for many people.

For us who are DeafBlind this might be difficult in some ways.

We often need SSPs to get around and enjoy ourselves.

There are many camps for DeafBlind people around the globe!

These camps have volunteer SSPs and interpreters for a week in exchange for room and board.

It is also affordable for us DeafBlind to attend these camps.

The camps plan many activities for us to participate in.

Most of the camps operate between June and September.

In USA, many states have camps for DeafBlind people.

Enjoy your summer!

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