Top stories about the deaf:

In Fresno, California, a new deaf event took place
– the Deaf Prom. This event gathers all mainstreamed
students from the area into one setting so that they
can enjoy themselves socializing and making new
friends on Prom Night.

Profiled in a local newspaper story was volunteer
firefighter Eric Nusbaum, Elsmere, NY. He is deaf
and the chief told the interviewer that he does
everything possible to fight fires – except to
go inside to fight the fire face to face.
This is true of most, if not all, volunteer
deaf firefighters.

Oregon Health & Science University is buying
the world’s most powerful microscopes. One of
the reasons is to study the causes of deafness.

Most construction companies do not hire the deaf.
Eguizabal Construction, a deaf-owned construction
company in London, has an all-deaf staff. They
do work on school buildings, houses, office
buildings and other projects.

Google has been telling web developers to close
caption all of their apps, even if most of the
app-users are not deaf.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

A DEAF OWNER OF FUNERAL HOMES
When a person dies, the funeral home takes care of
everything – casket, burial, cemetery and funeral
services.
It is a very serious business because respect must
be given to the family of the deceased person.
Could a deaf person own a funeral home. Yes, we
have a deaf person – Lori Kober, of South Dakota,
and she owns two funeral home businesses. She has
been in the business for 13 years and has the respect
of hearing people in small towns in South Dakota.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

RIGHT WAY OR WRONG WAY TO DESCRIBE DEAF
There was a convention last week by American
Psychiatric Association. There was a hot debate
on right or wrong way to describe a person –
fat person, blind person, very short person,
person with criminal mind, person with limited
intelligence, etc.
The convention delegates did not discuss
right or wrong way to describe a deaf person –
such as deaf-mute, deaf-dumb, etc.
Maybe the deaf are not important to
psychiatrists?

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

My gym buddies who come and pick me up to go to the gym are out until June!

I started walking again since winter finally ended!

I tend to do 4 miles in 1 1/2 hours.

There is a new obstacle course on the main road.

I feel like I am doing hurdles on a track and field course, going around orange barrels and cones!

The construction crews are working overnights repaving the busy road.

Let’s see how well I score for the summer Olympics!

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