I wasn’t sure if I could ever find the time to write an article for the blog but since I am writing this, obviously that means I have and the time I got is so little so I hope that I will be able to at least finish this article tonight and have it published before I head out to bed. Right now, it is at 2:05AM at very late night, I know I have not written an article for a few days because I have been very busy lately as I had a lot of things on my plate that I needed to do and still have a lot things on my plate that I need to do. I have tried to complete as much I could to clean off my plate, so that I could at least have a bit of room to breathe and have enough time to write an article for the blog without being stressed but that is not the case tonight as I am being somewhat stressed as I still have a lot of things that I need to do. I was thinking about to not write this article so that I could focus on some of other things that needs my attention but I felt that it wouldn’t be right to keep some of you hanging around a bit longer waiting for the next article by me and so here I am writing this article. I have a few of topics on a list which I write every time I would think of something that I think I should share my opinions or my thoughts about them with you all and as well a hand-pick of few topics from the topics suggestion list that I have gotten from you which I am grateful for because that gives me more options for what topics I should share my opinions or thoughts about with you all instead of having too few topics to share my opinions or thoughts which sometimes they can be bland so it gives me some flexibility in that area.

Hey guys and women! How are all of you doing? I hope that all of you are doing well, considering that we are somewhat having a taste of the winter as in eastern part of the United States is at 15 degree, especially over here in the state of Kentucky so it is obviously a bit cold and it is just the beginning of going into the winter. I am doing well myself over here, we got a lot of the heaters going on with the house’s heater, a couple of portable electric heaters and kerosene heater in the living room. With these heats going, the electric portable heaters and the house’s heater is having a bit difficult of catching up to the temperature that we have set for the house so that mean obviously that it is cold here but we are doing fine though. I notice that we just started getting low temperatures for the winter in December, which is a bit different because if I recall correctly, last year and maybe a few years before that we usually hit around 20-30 degrees in the beginning month of January. It’s middle of the month December, we are hitting the range of 10-20 degrees so that’s about 10-15 degrees and one month difference so I suspect that it is a possibility that we will be having a bit colder winter this year than we had last year but the question is how many snows are we going to get this year? I am a bit concerned about that, especially that over here in the eastern part of the United States that we are hitting 10-20 degrees then right back up to 40-50 degrees and then straight back to 10-20 degrees so the winter is bipolar this year as it seems. Climate change? Absolutely and that’s a problem we will be having with the president-elect Donald Trump when he takes the office in the next month because he doesn’t believe in climate change or global warming. What you expect, he is a Republican and that’s common with anyone who is Republicans although I am not saying that every Republicans doesn’t believe in that but unfortunately most don’t.

Remembering Pearl Harbor

I am sure that by now that every one of you knows what Pearl Harbor is since by now that Pearl Harbor story is in history books that is being used and being taught in History classes in every schools or institutes. The superficial of the Pearl Harbor story is that Pearl Harbor is a location in the state of Hawaii which is a state that belongs to the United States of America, this was during the World War Two or II as the Pearl Harbor is where the United States and its allies anchor their battleships waiting for their orders by the commander-in-chief which is the President of the United States. While they were waiting for their orders, it is also the place that the wounded battleships to anchor for the repairs or to get some fuels for their battleships and the whole deal. While the United States soldiers and its allies’ soldiers mingles with each other at some bars and other places they were in for a surprise. That surprise that no one likes and that no one ever want to see; the surprise was a heavy attack from Imperial Japanese Navy when they sent their planes to the United States soil in Hawaii. Imperial Japanese Navy showed up unannounced, under the radar and suddenly attacking everybody on Pearl Harbor by surprise. Sunk several battleships, destroyed several of their airplanes and killed over two thousand of soldiers including the ones that’s stationed on their battleships. So practically the Imperial Japanese Navy wiped most of Pearl Harbor, it is said that they do so to prevent them from defending United Kingdom and they knew that if they were to attack United States that United Kingdom would possibly have a strong defense due to the United States so in a sense they decided to attack the United States head-on and then go after the United Kingdom since they would have no backup defense which is some of them coming from Pearl Harbor.

Hey guys! How are all of you doing tonight? I hope that all of you are doing well, I see that we are already starting to feel the winter as it is reminding us that the winter is in the corner and that we better be prepared for it when they come. Why I said that we better be prepared for the winter? Because the mother nature made sure that they are unpredictable in the eyes of ours last year, when in around at that time in November last year that we are on this year a lot of us figured that it was just going to be what we predicted; Not a lot of snows, just a bit cold and a bit warm on some days but a very few days of blistering cold but we were wronged. The mother nature threw us something that we never thought to predict, a blizzard namely The Snowzilla last year where in eastern part of the United States had several feet of snows and the temperature were almost too unbearable. If you don’t know what I am talking about, referring to snowzilla then I suggest you to look up on a search engine like Google or Bing and look up the snowzilla in New York especially over in Brooklyn. You will see several pictures and videos where all of neighborhoods or in most of New York boroughs were snowed in to the point that no one can get out (literally) as their vehicles were drowned in snows. The winter last year were what we didn’t expect to see but they had happened, in other states on eastern part of the America such as Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, a bit of Tennessee and New Jersey along with New York was the target of the mother nature in the making of snowzilla. I am not going to say that we will be seeing another snowzilla, because I truly don’t know what we will be seeing just like we couldn’t predict the weather for the winter last year and it surprised us several times. So, it’d be better that we be prepared if that’s to happen again or worse, this way we can be more safe than be sorry and expect the unexpected if that’s to happen again.

Deaf Awareness Month: September

I know that lately I have written a few articles that is Deaf and Hard of Hearing related but the reason is the Deaf Awareness Month were to due in the month September which is the current month now. The purpose for Deaf Awareness Month in September is to educate the people about the culture of Deaf and Hard of Hearing people, people who is audism are trying so hard to destroy for several decades now. Even though the Deaf community may be a little but it has a strength in holding their place when it comes to anyone that is trying all their best to make sure everybody is not aware that the Deaf and Hard of Hearing has their culture as they want to frame them with the label disability. As I am part in the Deaf community, the battles with audism daily is tiresome and frustrating because one of many reasons is that we never gave the permission to anybody to make any decision for us especially on state or nation’s level. So many of the people thinks that anyone who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing means that there is something wrong with them, hence the label disability but what they don’t realize it is not disability when it is a culture and there is some family who have every generations that happens to be Deaf or Hard of Hearing which is a beautiful thing. That is where the lack of education comes in, the lack of education is due to some organizations such as Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing or people who is audism. The label disability is for anyone who is paralyzed, limbs amputation, have limit or none in their movements.

Deaf Created Internet.

Do any one of you remember what it was to experience the internet for the first time? Especially some of you who was born in the 80s like I did and the people who born in 80s or earlier was the ones who truly experienced the internet for the first time especially in the beginning stage and whoever born a few years later than the 90s will never truly have the same experience that many of us who was born before the birth of internet because anyone who born a few years later the birth of internet in the late 80s (1989 in March to be specific) would not have to go through that we had to go through at that time when the internet was born especially World Wide Web (WWW). How is it different you ask? Some of you may remember or not remember, when the internet was born at that time we had gone through the most difficult thing ever with the internet and that is trying to connect to the internet using dial-up connection via telephone landline cable and at that time not many of us had the patience for that kind of thing. To have the first experience in trying out the internet today is more pleasuring, would put you in amaze of how the internet works and much less of hassles in getting connected to the internet. Back in the days when the internet was just born, it was truly a mess because it’s not as easy as plug and go as we had to manually connect to the internet by adding several information such as IP, DNS/Host name, username, and more then once that we have added the information in we would have to make a call to the telecommunication provider to ask them to connect us so imagine the hassle in doing that.
