Top stories about the deaf:
A shooting incident took place in Israel.
A Palestinian woman was shot for not heeding
police instructions to stop what she was
doing. Was she deaf or hearing? The newspapers
said she was “allegedly” deaf or was “claimed”
to be deaf.
A travel agency in India advertised vacation
vouchers for anyone signing up for travel.
A deaf couple signed up for travel and were
never given vacation vouchers despite their
repeated requests. The agency, after discovering
they were deaf, did not want to bother with
communications at all. The company was heavily
fined for not following up on their advertising
promises.
Tang Shuai, the deaf Chinese attorney signed in
a video, warning the deaf of fraud and scams.
All of a sudden he was tagged with 10,000 friends
on the messaging app – all from the deaf that
needed his advice and tips.
Deaf Crows, consisting of deaf students from
Thom Collegiate, a junior college in
Regina, will be featuring their acts at the
Apple Time event.
A deaf Romanian man was fined for shouting
anti-government comments at a public rally.

THE KEYBOARD AND THE DEAF
    The keyboard has always been important to the
deaf. First, it was the TTY, then it was the computer
for e-mail and now for deaf pagers.
    Will the keyboard disappear? Voice technology may
cause keyboards to disappear. In the future hearing
people can use voice to operate the computer.
    We must make sure that computer manufacturers
will always keep the keyboard even though voice
technology is coming up soon.

This week’s ASL video in youtube
FRUSTRATIONS IN WATCHING CAPTIONS
    Many of us have watched a football game or
a basketball game on TV, but cannot follow
the scores because the captions hide it.
    We have complained for years but this
problem continues.
    One captioner said he can move the captions
away from the scores; the reason why he
doesn’t move it because he does not watch
the captions while he is typing very fast
to keep up with the voices.
    He also said that the engineers in the
TV room can move the captions away from the
scores. But many of them don’t, and it is
frustrating.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
We have been working outside sprucing up our yard
for the summer.
I needed to work mostly in the morning for the backyard.
Sun shines most of the morning which helps me visually.
By mid-afternoon the sun is basically on the side and
front of the house.
I was trying to put mulch in our flower garden and
realized I had a difficult time seeing.
I asked my 12 years old grandson to help with spreading mulch.
He took the bag up the stairs on the deck and dumped it
over the sides to spread the mulch!
Let’s hope grandma will smile tomorrow morning!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
