Alexander Graham Bell: Public Enemy of the Deaf

Some of you may not know this especially if you aren’t associated with the Deaf community and if you are indeed associated with the Deaf community or you are Deaf/Hard of Hearing yourself then there is a good possibility that you know this. If you aren’t associated with the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community or you are one of them then you already have a question in your mind wondering what or who am I referring to the public enemy of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community but if you are associated with the community or you are one among of us as I am Deaf myself then you should by now already know that I am referring to Alexander Graham Bell being the public enemy of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community. Now that I have mentioned that the name is Alexander Graham Bell, those who aren’t associated with or is Deaf/Hard of Hearing immediately recalls that Alexander Graham Bell is known for being a pioneer or an inventor as he invented landline telephone and some of you already know that he has been suspected of stealing the blueprint from Elisha Gray who came up with the mechanics in blueprint to build the first landline telephone that everybody today uses at home using dial-up connection. That wasn’t the only thing that Alexander Graham Bell is known for, he is also known for being a public enemy of the Deaf community for more than a century and even though he may not longer alive but he left something behind that would continue to keep himself as the public enemy even to this day. His organization with several agencies under it calls Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. He has himself alone done harms to the Deaf community itself deeply to the point that it left an everlasting scar and his organization is here to always make sure that they find a way to open the wound scar in the Deaf community that he made when he was alive.

12-10-2016 Tidbits

I know I have not write anything for a few days, about a bit over half of a week because I have been somewhat lately and not only that I have unbelievably struggles with trying to find some time to write an article for the blog since my last article where I was talking about looking for anyone who would like to write an article as a guest. By the way for these emails that I have gotten from you about wanting to write a guest article on here, I am very thankful for these emails and I am hoping that I will continue getting some more e-mails from some of you who would like to write an article as a guest. It seems that through these emails I have gotten from the people, most of them wants to write an article about foods and recipes so I am somewhat taken back by that as I realized that there are more food bloggers than I thought they would be. I have not picked two or three guest bloggers to write one of each articles as guest yet because I want to make sure that everyone can still get this opportunity to write an article as a guest in case if they didn’t know that I am looking for some guest bloggers so I am trying to spread the words about this as much as I can and will do so for as long as I can although I will probably try to call it a deadline by either Sunday or Monday this week coming up so to give everybody a bit more time to decide or a bit more time for more people to find out about this opportunity. Nonetheless I am being hopeful that I can give something back to the bloggers in return for their thanks for helping me to succeed from the day one when I started getting some interest in becoming a blogger in the year of 2004.

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.

11-20-2016 Tidbits

This would have been 11-19-2016 tidbits as I was planning on to write the tidbits earlier, but the midnight have passed so that means it is no longer the 19th and it is now 20th of November. That means I am writing this article at very late of the night which is a bit unusual as I usually start writing a blog at around nine o’clock but lately I have lost the track of time, I usually make sure that I follow my daily routine such as taking a bath at midnight (twelve o’clock), be in bed after taking a bath about at 12:30-12:45AM then wake up at four o’clock in the morning and yes that means I only sleep for about three hours every night. After waking up at four o’clock I would tune in on the television, especially Netflix or Hulu to watch a few episodes of few television shows from about 4:30AM after waking up until about 7 o’clock AM I would get on the computer to surf around for a bit for about a couple of hours and then start working on the internet at about 9 o’clock to ten o’clock in the morning because I do freelance in several things such as web development, internet marketing, search engines optimization and among others for a few hours until about five o’clock in the evening I would take a couple of hours rest to watch Netflix or Hulu on my smart TV in my bedroom. After finished taking a rest from about five o’clock until seven o’clock in the late evening, that is when I would usually do some checking for news and some research for about a couple of hours until about nine o’clock which that is when I would usually start writing an article for my blog here or as a guest blog for some bloggers that looking for a hire for some good contents for their blog so that is where I usually comes in as a guest blogger. Then by about 11:30-11:45PM I would get myself ready for a bath, before I do I would watch a movie for maybe about twenty to thirty minutes before taking a bath and then call it a night so repeats.

Twitter Is For Sale, MySpace and Social Media

Twitter is one of my most favorite social media, probably just a little more than Facebook for some reasons and that I look at Twitter more of an intelligent system than Facebook is. Surely Facebook most of the things that people needs, private messaging, wall posting, commenting, pictures uploading, videos uploading, live videos, notes, applications (apps) such as games, groups, pages and many more while Twitter is very simple when it comes to features. Maybe I am just a simple person, I don’t know as I don’t like things too complexes and clusters; MySpace is the perfect example. Some of you may not know what MySpace is, some of you may know and remember what MySpace were. MySpace is a wholly different now than it was before, as a few years ago MySpace was the king of social media and MySpace is practically the forefather of the social media whether you accept it or deny it. However, Tom Anderson who was CEO of MySpace at that time decided to sell MySpace for several millions of dollars and sold it to by news corp company. That is when MySpace started rumblings to pieces, Facebook immediately dethroned MySpace within’ a few months after MySpace was sold and Facebook has become what we all knows today — The biggest social media of all. But ironically, MySpace was so popular at that time that it almost bought Facebook off Mark Zuckerberg and that would seal the fate of Facebook ever becoming what it is today while MySpace would still be sitting in the kingdom’s throne to this day. What revert the sale of Facebook to MySpace, were that Mark Zuckerberg was asking too much as he asked for 75 million dollars from MySpace although at the first MySpace had nearly bought it as it wasn’t priced at that high price but once Mark Zuckerberg realizes that MySpace were too excited in buying his Facebook so he decided to skyrocket the asking price to 75 million dollars and MySpace rejected the asking price.

Hatfield and McCoy Marathon ’16

June 11th of 2016 in the heated summer, there were one huge local event that everybody looks forward to and that is Hatfield and McCoy Marathon Run. They do Hatfield and McCoy Marathon Runs now and then, to my knowledge it’s once or twice annually as it is how many times I usually sees them but I could be wrong because I don’t know the entire schedules or the deal with Hatfield-McCoy Marathon. Hatfield and McCoy Marathon has always been one of the largest event in the heart of two counties which that is in Pike County of Kentucky and Mingo County of West Virginia. In Pike County, Ky they runs between Belfry to Blackberry and in Mingo County they runs in Williamson which is where the kickoff is and the finish lane is. Why these two counties with two different states you may ask? If you don’t know the history of Hatfield-McCoy feud then I am surprised because almost everybody know the history of them, nonetheless Hatfield-McCoy feud happens between the border of two counties, that is both in Pike County and Mingo County. Specifically between the Belfry in Pike County of Kentucky and Williamson in Mingo County of West Virginia, both of them is a border to two states each others. Now between that, there is a river which is known as Tug Valley’s River so if you were to cross from Belfry to Williamson you would cross where the river is or cross from Williamson to Belfry. Long story short on the history, the leader of Hatfield family is Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield and the leader of McCoy family is Randolph “Randall” McCoy who goes war against each others right on the border of these two states. If you want to know the entire story which I highly recommend that you do, I recommend you to buy a book calls Hatfield-McCoy Feud and if you aren’t into book then good news is that they made a movie out of it with the same name of the book “Hatfield-McCoy Feud”.
