Top stories about the deaf:
40 British MPs, all of them hearing, have protested
budget cuts in education of the deaf. Possibly
afraid of the Brexit, most MP’s have supported
these cuts?
The Columbia University School of Engineering
has come up with a brain-activity hearing
aid. Not sure exactly how it works but it
has something to do with the brain being
read for the hearing aid to produce
an approximate level of voice coming in.
A hotel in Japan refused to accommodate a group
of 100 deaf people, saying it was a safety
issue. When the deaf group filed a formal
complaint, the hotel management apologized.
A deaf-blind Australian woman was in her
apartment alone when there was a smoke
alarm warning building residents of
fire. Fortunately firefighters broke
into her apartment and got her out.
Ryan Gollner, who is deaf, was appointed
interim Director of the Louisiana School for
the Deaf. He previously served as the
Principal.

This week’s ASL video in youtube
HEARING LOSS RULES ARE CRAZY
    A deaf woman with a hearing loss of 64 dB can
participate in the Deaflympics, but cannot participate
in the Miss Deaf America Pageant!
    Why? Because Deaflympics rules say that deaf athletes
must have a hearing loss of 55 dB or higher to qualify. But
the NAD Miss Deaf America Pageant rules say that
deaf participants must have a hearing loss of 65 dB
or higher to qualify.
    This rule is crazy!
NOTE:
NAD no longer hosts Miss Deaf America Pageants. This
video is an old one that is being run again for your
laughter and amusement!

THE GEICO CAVEMAN ADS ARE FALSE
    When we watch TV we laugh at these famous
GEICO caveman ads.
    These ads are false. In these ads, the Cavemen
use voice to communicate with each other.
    During the Stone Age, the early Cavemen used sign
language to communicate with each other for
many years.
    The GEICO ads should have used sign language

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
When I work with interpreters at various settings:
People ask very naïve questions.
1)      Are you two married?
2)      Why are you holding hands? (Tactile ASL interpreting)
I end up writing stories for my comedy show!
You should see those comic pictures I used in my shows!
Let’s see if I can catch any more to add to my story line!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
