Top stories about the deaf:
For the past 20 years the deaf people of Malaysia
have been fighting to protect their own
Malaysian Sign Language. It was reported in
a newspaper story.
How do sign for the below word?
supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
This not a joke. A team of NTID is coming
up with signs for these hard-to-spell and
hard-to-understand and never-used words!
150 deaf people in Kenya were given equipment
to help them launch their own self-employed
businesses – ie lawn mowers, water pumps,
kitchen utensils, sewing machines.
The United Nations Development Program
made these donations.
A worry among attorneys that work with
defendants is the boom of lawsuits on
non-captioned videos filed by the deaf.
This point was raised in a law
publication.
EEOC has filed a lawsuit against Cracker
Barrel Old Country Store near Baltimore
for discriminating against a job applicant
who is deaf.

This week’s ASL video in youtube
ALLAUDET IN A TV SERIES DVD
    There is a new DVD for sale. It is about a past
TV series which partly involves Gallaudet.
    Gallaudet? Yes, but not of Gallaudet University,
but of actor John Gallaudet.
    This actor was playing a role as a judge in several
Perry Mason TV series that is in the new DVD.
    Was John Gallaudet related to the famous Gallaudet
family tree?
    Yes, but distant – into several generations. Even
one member of the Gallaudet family tree said he has
never met John in person before he died.
    In that TV series, Perry always won and the Gallaudet
actor (as Perry Mason’s judge) always lost when challenging
Mason in arguments over court room procedures.

This week’s ASL video in youtube
ASL AND VSL
    Our American Sign Language is a complete language.
We have signs for most words in the dictionary.
    Some countries have limited sign language vocabulary.
The VSL (Vietnamese Sign Language) is limited. For their
interpreters it was hard for them to sign some words
because there is none in the VSL dictionary.
    We should realize we are fortunate to have a complete
sign language.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
We have newlyweds in our house, living here until the right
time to move on to their own place.
Our son-in-law has been very generous helping with outdoor chores!
I think he enjoys the chainsaw the most!
Anyway, he has done a great job sprucing up the property.
However, for me being DeafBlind, he leaves tripping hazards!
I trip over things that he has left around.
He needs to be educated about putting things away or he will
find me covered with black and blues and purples and yellows!
I need to get used to the new landscape to avoid any more
scratches and bruises.
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
