The wintry storm has hit in Kentucky specifically Pike county like it has never happened before in decades. I live in that county in Kentucky which is one of the counties that got hit the most, here we got hit so bad that we had to declare state emergency in level 3 and several of residents has lost power and some damages however luckily I live in the mountain that the power lines are under several trees which makes it harder for the outrage however only damage I had gotten was the internet and TV and I would rather that than losing any power because the power is more important than those especially for the heater to keep us all warm throughout the wintry storm.
At here I would like to wish every one of you readers a very Merry Christmas and that I hope that every one of you are enjoying today especially opening the presents or watching your family opening some the presents and watching the smile on their faces is better than anything! Also I know that most of you are looking very forward to having some good Christmas dinner like I do, me and my family are having turkey, dressing (stuffing) and many of other for Christmas dinner. Our Christmas traditional dinner is same as thanksgiving at most and same traditional to most of the people that I know of and probably to some of you as well.
If you have already received presents please leave comments below to let me know what you have for Christmas! And as well what foods are all of you having for Christmas dinner today!
I stumbled upon a article that wrote by Fox News that upsets me more than anything. The title of the article says “Feds try to eliminate housing for the deaf”. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) who granted to pay 2.6 million in funds to build a complex named Apache ASL Trails that has 75 units for deaf and hard of hearing to live in back in 2005 but now they changed their mind and are wanting to force the deaf and hard of hearing residents to move out and be homeless.
Apache ASL Trails is located in Arizona, the senate of R-Ariz are fighting to put a stop in HUD to force the deaf and hard of hearing residents to move out and make them homeless, but HUD are quite powerful especially their lawyers and are willing to be inhumanity because all they care about is for themselves and not anyone who residents in Arizona especially the deaf and hard of hearing. Over five hundred thousands of dollars from state taxpayers and the apartment’s developer has put in to fight HUD, and National Association for the deaf (NAD) has jumped in the action to fight HUD and bought in more lawyers, several people are fighting against HUD to try to put a stop for them from forcing about 69 residents that are deaf and hard of hearing to move out and become homeless. But NAD has told Fox News that HUD attorneys is being ignorant and arrogant for what they are trying to do to deaf and hard of hearing.
There is deaf news where they give the news all around in the world for only deaf and hard of hearing to watch the video about the news they have up to date or read the update news they have. Today one of the news on deaf news has the title that stated “Congressman hires deaf interns” and that caught my attention because my belief is that all deaf or hard of hearing are equal to hearing people but sadly, often they are not recognized as much as the hearing people are in America especially when it come to important things such as career, politics and among others.
That is what makes me ill is that often a lot of people who think that deaf or hard of hearing people cannot do what the hearing people can do, that has been a heated debate going on for several decades. Same way as men vs women for driving, comparing their skills and such. Same concept as deaf/hard of hearing vs hearing which is quite unfair as it should be equally because only difference between deaf and hard of hearing vs hearing is that deaf and hard of hearing cannot hear, that is it as it does not change how their brain works because they do have same brain as the hearing people have and believe it or not the deaf or hard of hearing have more focus on things than hearing people does and if you do not believe me then feel free to do some research which I suggest you to do so as it is quite interesting.
I have come across a video on YouTube that are quite interesting about the deaf holocaust in Germany along with Nazis in world war two (WWII) and decided that I should embed a video in this post so that every one of you can watch the history about the deaf holocaust and the nazi in Germany at the dark time, it has subtitle/closed captions for every one of you to get the idea what the narrator are saying in the video and as well for deaf or hard of hearing people to understand what the narrator are saying in sign language who signs in Germany Sign Language (GSL) which is quite interesting, it is quite long video so be sure to grab some popcorn and a cup of coffee or soda and pull the chair in and sit and play the video to watch or if you have device or TV that has internet app on TV, then press watch later button and then go to YouTube app on your device on the TV then you will be able to watch from there instead of watching it on the computer.
There were a contest for the best coach in the nation done by a website USATodayHSS.com where they have two or three-part of contest which is a poll for each coach in region, state/nation. One of coach that was in the contest were one from the high school that I graduated, which if you recall my blog post to ask all readers to cast a poll for Coach Philip Haywood which the post can be found here. Thanks to every one of you and everyone in the region, nation or the state in Kentucky that were voting for him and the result of that he has won for the best coach in the nation! Please allow me to congratulate you to be the best coach in the nation and you do truly deserve to have the recognition especially after all what you have done for football team at Belfry High School.
