Top stories about the deaf:

In India, there is a push for mandatory hearing
loss screening for all newborns.

In an interview a deaf activist said:
If I was the only deaf executive in a Fortune
500 corporation, would it change the corporate
culture to be more accepting of the deaf?

Janna Luksha, who is deaf, is a personal
trainer of the deaf and hearing ASL learners
in Rochester, NY. She was featured in a newspaper story.

America Needs To Hear From More Deaf Leaders. That was the issue raised in a HuffPost article. DeafDigest says times have changed and we pretty
much do not know who our local and national
leaders. Too many reasons.

A deaf employee in an automobile factory
claimed job discrimination. The judge threw
out half of his case, saying his complaint
was vague and dubious.

TO READ FACES
We, the deaf read faces and are sensitive to facial
expressions – anger, upset, hurt, disappointment, etc.
There is a reason for these different faces. A
magazine article said that there are 43 different
face movements, and also 10,000 different expressions.
Movements and expressions can be scary at times!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

Introductions to people in the room.

Trying to get all the folks names in a gathering is difficult task.

Fingerspelling is hard while tactiling.

If the individual has a sign name, that would be easier!

I once attended a party and got most of the people.

I asked my wife about a specific person I didn’t see that night.

It turn out she did finger spell her name! She caught me asking my wife!

When I went to her I felt her hand and realized that was her!

Now I need to work hard to be sure I really understand who is in the room!

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