— a cop in Ohio understood the weapon gesture

A deaf man came to a cop that was patrolling the
Youngstown, Ohio downtown and used a gesture
to indicate a gun. The cop caught the gesture
and followed the deaf man to a nearby store
where a robbery was in progress. The robbers
were arrested. It took place in the 1950’s.
If this same gesture was used nowadays, would
the panicky police officers draw their
weapons on the innocent deaf man who was trying
to say something?


— a deaf movie with a terrible plot

A new South Korean movie is titled Bo-ri.
It revolved around a hearing girl, the only
hearing member of an all-deaf family. She
feels rejected by the family because she
is not deaf like her family members. She
does everything to make herself deaf –
listening to loud music and diving into
deep sea. Rescued she was sent to
a hospital. She wakes up as a deaf girl.
The critics have said it was a bad movie
with a bad plot.

scientists is trying to come up with a special
device that would help the deaf to hear the light.

say it works.
