— a shocking X-ray picture

The picture is self-explanatory. Do visit it at:


— FCC tells TV manufacturers not to hide the CC symbols

How many times have we tried to turn on the captions
on a hotel TV we are not familiar with, and to waste
time trying to locate the CC symbol. Is it on the
remote or is it on the screen, via menu options or
on the TV set? Some of us had to call the hotel
engineer to come up for help. No more, if FCC has its’
way. FCC ordered all TV manufactures to make the CC
symbol more visible, either on the remote or on the
screen or even on the TV set.



— deaf student kicked out of university

Jane Ottah, who is deaf, was a student at a university
until she was kicked out. Bad grades? No. Disciplinary
issues? No. She was kicked out because of her
deafness. ADA? No, because it is Rivers State
University of Science and Technology, not in USA but
in Nigeria! The deaf student is very angry and
is planning legal action.

One hearing blind employee is frustrated.
Hearing employees would not communicate with her
on office gossip and office rumors.
As a result, she depends on a deaf employee
to give her gossip and rumors.
It is a big irony!

In a hospital, there are two separate medical
waiting rooms. The first room has TV with captions.
The second room has TV with no captions.
You prefer the first waiting room, but the
receptionist directs you to the second room.
You cannot argue – because you can’t risk
missing your appointment if the receptionist
asks for your name – and you are not there!
