Top stories about the deaf:
Madison, a city in Wisconsin, will not allow
City Zoom meetings without advance permission.
One of the reasons is captioning issues that
would place the deaf at disadvantage.
……….
A deaf woman is the leader of a church singing
choir in Australia, and she pretty much is
leading the group via on-line communications.
……….
Interpreters for deaf are available during
press conferences in Scotland and Wales.
No interpreters for the deaf during Boris
Johnson’s press conferences in London!
Why? This is what British deaf activists
are asking.
……..
FedEx reached a $3.3 million dollar settlement
over job discrimination lawsuits filed by 200
deaf employees. Is this good or bad? It may
mean $15,000 settlement per deaf employee,
which is not that much money!
……….
Japanese tourist not surprised by deaf vendors
in China. The tourist said “I wasn’t surprised.
In Japan, there are many bakeries and other businesses
with deaf employees.”

A WRONG WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE DEAF
    A hearing person writes notes to communicate
with the deaf.
    This is great – but sadly, it is the wrong way.
She would use red pen ink to write notes on tiny
red post-it paper.
    When the deaf person complained that it was
hard to read red ink on red post-it paper with
tiny handwriting, the hearing person laughed
and thought it was funny!

A FRUSTRATED HARD OF HEARING LEGISLATOR
    A former hard of hearing state legislator
served several terms but was frustrated. Being
hard of hearing, it was not possible to tell
fast-talking legislators to slow down. And
there was no CART system.
    As a result, the legislator was always
asking wrong questions at the wrong time,
because speakers move on very fast – from
topic to topic within few seconds.
    The legislator knew no sign language
and an interpreter would be useless.
  This legislator became so bored that he
would read books and newspapers during
legislative sessions!
  No one was happy about it.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Every year, DeafBlind folks always look forward to attending DeafBlind
camps or retreats.
This is the most affordable gathering for us who are DeafBlind.
SSPs and interpreters volunteer to provide guide and interpreting
services.
There are about 15 well known camps around the USA and one in Canada.
The Covid-19 pandemic is devastating our hopes to attend this year.
Stay healthy and safe.
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
