TCL Vibe[tm] Travel Alarm Clock with Vibrating Wristband Alert

TCL Vibe[tm] is a dual travel alarm clock that lets you wake up by a
vibrating wristband alert, a 75dB audible alarm, or both.

The vibrating wristband will wake you up without disturbing others in
the room-a great feature if you need to keep quiet for a sleeping
spouse or a dorm roommate. It even has its own snooze button!

The TCL Vibe[tm] is perfect for travel, measuring less than 3¡í on
each side. It comes with 3 AAA batteries, wireless wristband,
vibration unit, and USB charging cable (for the vibration unit) that
all fit neatly in a convenient travel pouch.

Order the TCL Vibe[tm] at Harris Communications for only $49.95.

Top stories about the deaf:

The National Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux
received a grant to train volunteers, fluent in
British Sign Language. These volunteers, upon
training, will be able to serve the deaf community
in a variety of roles. Areas to be served are
Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Derby and Coventry.

What is Deaf and what is deaf? We all know what
both terms mean. A student at University of
Nebraska wanted to make a clarification in the
campus newspaper. He said deaf is for those that
can’t hear, and that Deaf is for those that
wish for a cultural identification.

NTID has won a $540,000 grant for three years.
Goal is to see if low public expectations of
deaf capabilities and skills would impact on
the way they learn (or do not learn) math.

University of York, in Great Britain, has mandated
that captions appear on all campus videos – even
if there are no deaf people around!

Going on right now is a hot debate in Vermont.
Issue is – how will the 650 impacted deaf children,
formerly served statewide by the closed Vermont
Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing be
taught. Vermont has 14 counties across the state.

RICH HEARING CONSULTANTS, POOR DEAF CONSULTANTS
Are hearing consultants rich and are deaf consultants
poor?
As an example, a hearing senator loses congressional
election, and is out of job. No worry. He becomes a
consultant and becomes a rich man with many consulting
contracts.
A deaf person loses a big job. He then becomes a
consultant. But will he become a rich man? No.
This is sad!

LOOKING AT PEOPLE AT THE BAR
A hearing person can enter the bar, sit down,
and just listen.
Examples are – a pro athlete discussing his new
contract with his agent; an author discussing his
new book with his book editor; a boyfriend telling
his girlfriend that it is time to break up, etc.
A deaf person knows nothing, and uses his eyes
to imagine things with them.

Voting

Tuesday, November 4, we vote for many positions, from Governor,
to state legislatures and Congress.

Finding an accessible method for us DeafBlind to vote is a challenge.

I voted early with assistance and had my choices recorded. Now,
that was no secret!

For now, we have to trust our assistants who help us vote.

Hopefully there will be some better way to vote independently

So, don’t forget to vote! Your votes count!
