Top stories about the deaf:
University of Nebraska has been awarded one million
dollars in grant money – goal is to make sure the
deaf youth people are getting the services they
are entitled to.
The Deaf Quiz Show, scheduled next week, at Harper
College (Illinois) has been cancelled. Reason?
Lack of interest!
Rebecca Capen, who is deaf, was written up in
a North Texas newspaper. She is a nurse with the
Baylor Scott & White Medical Center.
The Norfolk Deaf Childrens’ Society is a lucky
British agency. Michael and Sylvia Porter,
not deaf, collected old postcards as a hobby
and donated the proceeds of these sales to
the deaf agency. The proceeds were £122,000
in British pounds.
Texas Governor Abbott has declared October
as the month of Persons with Disabilities.
He is not deaf, but uses the wheelchair

A TV COMMERCIAL THAT IS STRANGE
    There was a TV commercial about Hand Kingdom.
What is Hand Kingdom? DeafDigest editor never
heard of it.
    The web search really did not say too much
about it.
    Is it about ASL called Hand Kingdom or is it
something else with the hearing?

RICH HEARING CONSULTANTS, POOR DEAF CONSULTANTS
    Are hearing consultants rich and are deaf consultants
poor?
    As an example, a hearing senator loses congressional
election, and is out of job. No worry. He becomes a
consultant and becomes a rich man with many consulting
contracts.
  A deaf person loses a big job. He then becomes a
consultant. But will he become a rich man? No.
  This is sad!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Recently I was working in my backyard on a bright sunny day.
After I finished the chores, I came in the house.
I had to prepare dinner for the family.
I realized it was very difficult for me to see!
We who have Usher Syndrome have a hard time adjusting from bright lighting
outside to more moderate lighting inside.
It takes us a long time to adapt and utilize residual vision.  I had to
use my other senses.
Let’s see if my family survives my cooking!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
