Marvel universe

the Deaf was shut down some years back.

……….

An activist said, in a private email, to DeafDigest
editor:

remote work is problematic for deaf employees; one of
the reasons are that Zoom leaders do not really involve
the deaf in the work-related issues

…………….

US Department of Transportation is updating
its Passengers with Disabilities guidelines
because of continuing issues with deaf

huge airport terminals.

ASL COURSES POPULAR WITH COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYERS?
There are many, many college football players that
take ASL classes.
Do these football players love ASL and love Deaf
Culture?
No. Many football coaches tell these players to
take ASL classes because they think it is an easy
class for them to pass and to continue playing
football.
An example was a group of 29 football players at
University of Oregon taking these ASL classes.
Maybe this is why the team is very strong since
all of them passed their ASL classes!

TINNITUS: A CHOICE

In Scotland few years ago, a hearing woman was
suffering from tinnitus.

It is a stubborn ringing of noise in a person’s
head that almost never stops.

The doctor told the woman that she had a choice –
to have an operation to cure tinnitus but to become
deaf for good or to ignore the operation and suffer
tinnitus for life but to remain hearing.

An awful choice!
