Top stories about the deaf:
A group of hearing people in Big Spring,
Texas, created a mural as a way of honoring
the Southwest Collegiate Institute Deaf.
These hearing people, however, had no real
connection, one way or other to the deaf or
of the collegiate program!
……….
No two state commissions for the deaf and hard of
hearing operate the same. This being said, the
chairperson of the New Hampshire Commission on
Deafness and Hearing Loss said that they solicit
donations from businesses, getting help each from
non-profit agencies and also from volunteers.
……….
The Deaf Centers of Nevada has been forced to
deal with shortage of face masks to distribute
to its deaf clients.
……..
Disney has issued a casting call for deaf actors
to play a deaf Hawkeye role.
……….
Today’s ADA is by far much more complex and more
complicated than the original ADA. An example
is Section 12102 buried inside today’s ADA regs
that tries to define exactly what is a disability.
Splitting hairs, is what ADA specialists are saying
these days.

LOUD TIMERS IN KITCHEN
In restaurant kitchens, hearing chefs use loud
clock timers to tell them that dishes on the stove
and oven are ready to be taken out and served.
When these restaurants hire deaf chefs, there
are no big, visible, alerting timers to tell
them the food is finished with cooking.
Why?

10,000 STEPS RULE ON I-PHONE
iPhone has an app that helps count
10,000 steps per day for users that want to
exercise and keep their weight down.
It may be funny! A deaf person was
communicating in ASL all morning with
her family and then went out for her walk.
She looked at the walk-counter and it
already showed over 10,000 steps and she
wasn’t even walking, except in her house.
It was realized that the iPhone confused
ASL movement of hands with walking on the
streets!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Matching colors is getting more difficult for me.
I have a hard time trying to match my clothes of different colors.
If I don’t get assistance that day, I’ll probably hide in the office!
Or should I empty the closet and replace with all same color shirts and
pants?
That is gonna be a boring life.
That is why I have my wife decorate me!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
