You've got a vibrating alarm clock that rocks your pillow daily like a 4.6 Richter earthquake, and faithful Siri always reminds you to get your tired butt to Ashtanga yoga class at 5 P.M. sharp. So why do you feel like there's no time to get stuff done?
Why does it seem like deaf people possess a psychic ability or a sixth sense? A philosopher, Aristotle argued that all humans have five active senses and no more than five. If one is lost, then it is irreplaceable. Perhaps we could argue against his theory however, intuition – in which it seems to naturally be ascribed to all deaf people since birth, may be the secret “sixth” sense.
Designed specifically for deaf and hard of hearing people; WyndTell Pagers quickly became a revolutionary communication tool.
On Urban Dictionary, definitions for a terp include a "turtle who is a pimp" and a nickname for the University of Maryland's mascot (terrapin). But in Deaf Community, a terp is something else entirely - and near and dear to our hearts.
Fresh after our East Coast launch, deafREVIEW hit its second milestone last week – 500 business reviews since our launch in Seattle. Chalk it up to the combined powers of our awesome West and East Coast reviewers.
This isn't your Grandpa's RV, nor the road trip you took while barely out of puberty. In Jack Kerouac's On The Road, two soul-searching young men blaze across the nation in a '49 Hudson. Fast forward 60 years, and two men in an RV (see their tour dates here) are helping deaf/hard of hearing students find their calling – and spur them into academic action.
Ask a culturally Deaf person this: ‘If there was a pill you could take to regain your full hearing, would you take it?’ a majority of them will tell you no. Once, a deaf woman told me, “If I got my hearing back, I would lose my identity and I wouldn’t know what to do.”
We're getting down to the wire: Unless you're an early-bird filer or are taking the Form 4868 (a tax extension) route, you've only got a week left to file taxes for the year 2012.
It's no April Fool's joke. After much social media buzz, voting, and feedback, the verdict is in: deafREVIEW has opened its review platform in not one, not two, but three bustling cities on the East Coast today. That's right -- all three cities have such good review potential, we couldn't simply pick one! If you live in or have visited Washington, D.C., New York City, or Rochester, you can now write consumer reviews about local businesses you frequent. Don't live directly within the city? No problem: You can write reviews within a 60-mile radius of the three major city hubs.
The use of Manual sign and Oralism has been in a life-long battle since the beginning of education for the Deaf. A speaker in the documentary, “Through Deaf Eyes” describes the period of Oralism in Deaf history as the ‘Dark Ages’- an era we might recall when Deaf students were forced to speak and also punished for using their natural language, American Sign Language.
