Top stories about the deaf:
Hearing people that love coffee do not know sign
language. How were they able to order their coffee
from Deaf-In-Business, a cafe in Malaysia.
There is a huge sign in front of the counter
that shows different signs for Espresso, Cappuchino,
Cafe Latte, etc.
In Shillong, a region in India, a workshop took place
for district officers. It is “Accessible Election for
the Deaf and Hard of Hearing People.”
Deaf said that. Hearing said that. This incident
was in reference to the Dunkin’ Donuts shop in
Jacksonville, Illinois. The deaf said hearing
won’t communicate. The hearing said he
communicated but the deaf person wouldn’t
understand. The issue was an order for a
vanilla coffee. There are three varieties of
the coffee, and the hearing person wanted to
know which variety the deaf person wanted. It
went on back and forth. Hence this issue –
the hearing said that. The deaf said that.
Do hearing people in India listen to the deaf?
Well, there was a recent workshop where Miss Deaf
Asia, as the keynote speaker, gave advice to
100 hearing women interested in business careers.
Prosphen Okiemute, who is deaf, graduated from
University of Ibadan in Nigeria and is an
attorney. The university said this deaf attorney
is one of their most successful graduates.

TWO DEAF HOUSES NEXT TO EACH OTHER
    Some time ago two deaf families lived in houses
next to each other. Both houses had side doors
that faced each other about 20 feet apart.
    When these deaf people from one house wanted
to communicate with someone from the other house,
they just stood in front of the windows of the side
doors and chatted in ASL without leaving their houses.
    Not any more, both families moved away.

DR MARSTERS AND THE TTY MACHINE
    Dr. James Marsters, who died few weeks ago, was
written up in many hearing newspapers. They said
he was involved with the first TTY machine in 1964.
    Weitbrecht was already using his Radio Ham TTY
machine to communicate with other hearing Radio
Hams from 1940’s to 1960’s.
    Marsters and Weitbrecht did not know each
other before a friend introduced them. Marsters
was a frustrated dentist, not able to use voice
phone to communicate with his hearing patients.
    With Marsters’ encouragement, Weitbrecht
converted a Radio Ham modem to a Deaf TTY
modem in 1964.
    Marsters and another deaf partner founded a
company that manufactured Deaf TTY modems.
This company helped the Deaf TTY network grow
very fast.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
I traveled to Colombia, South America for 12 days.
The country is much older than United States!
The sidewalks were difficult to navigate due to bricks
and cobble stones.
Many sidewalks were narrow with many street vendors trying
to sell their products.
Also some of the older buildings had wooden decor
exposed on the outside walls for me to crash into!
I told my wife that I brought the wrong white cane!
My other white cane has a special tip called “All Terrain”.
It would have allowed me to go through more smoothly than
getting stuck in between cracks!
Overall, it was an interesting and cultural experience for us.
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
