Top stories about the deaf:

The Tanzania Association for the Deaf has started
a campaign to create national awareness on the
rights and needs of the deaf.

Color-coded sounds to help the deaf follow
the noise on the streets? This is what
a team of engineers at the Singapore University of Technology and Design is coming up with.
Different colors on the computer would
indicate which sound it is coming from
(ie truck nose, motorcycle noise, ambulance
siren, police siren, etc).

The Arizona Commission of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
is now celebrating its 40th year in business.

Sign Language has become one of the official
languages of Sri Lanka.

Because of declining enrollment, the Singapore
School for the Deaf has shut down.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

A CRUEL DEAF PUNISHMENT
A deaf employee in the federal government did not get
along with other employees and with the supervisor.

The deaf employee was right on many issues. But the
hearing people hated the deaf employee.

The deaf employee was given a cruel punishment. He
was transferred to a new office – without windows,
and all by himself with no one to talk to. And
to make things worse, no work assignments.

He was told – just come to work. Sit in the office
and do nothing.

The deaf employee quit.

DEAF STAY IN ONE JOB OR JUMP FROM JOB TO JOB
Many deaf people find a job and stay with it for
many years. It is always a fear of not finding a new
job if he quits his long job.

Many hearing people jump from one job to job; they
are called job-hoppers or job-jumpers.

Who is right? Stay in one job and suffer from bad
bosses and bad employees or to quit and hope to find
another new job?

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

Last week, I told you about my plans to travel to Oregon and about organizing my suitcase.

I arrived at the Dulles airport in Washington, DC. with my SSP.

Then when I got off my plane, an airport employee greeted with a wheelchair along with my name typed into an iPad.

Can you imagine without a SSP? I cannot read my own name!

I would be most likely to disturb the people traffic.

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