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.

Tidbits 8-17-16

There are a few of topics that I would like to discuss about with you today, as some of you know that I write tidbits article here now and then so you should know that sometimes that a tidbits article can get long because where the definition for tidbit means that it is a bit of anything. So it will be more than just one topic instead of one topic, I think that sometimes it is better writing about a few of topics instead of just one topic because it can get a bit boring and not only that I am somewhat talkative so obviously it’s fitting for me as I don’t like writing or talking about just one topic or one of something. If you ever think of a word for something that you would like to discuss or share your opinions about few or several topics than just one topic then now you know that there is a word and that is tidbits. Tidbit is in the dictionary so you can easily find the definition for the word “Tidbit” on some search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo and tidbits are more interesting to read than just reading one topic because some of the people likes to read about a few of topics than just one thing so if you are a blogger or a vlogger then I suggest that you do some tidbits yourself; your readers or viewers will appreciate you for that.

FaceBook’s Video Comment.

I am the one, I am sure there are many of others too who pressed Mark Zuckerberg to add video function to the comment for the FaceBook because before I started pressing Mark Zuckerberg the CEO of FaceBook it only has pictures function where you could upload pictures in the comment but not video and I decided to send a message to CEO of FaceBook Mark Zuckerberg that I suggest for him to add the video option along with the picture in the comment function because I have seen where several Deaf or Hard of Hearing people have complained about not being able to respond to anyone’s post with a vlog in American Sign Language so I suggested that Mark Zuckerberg to add the video function to the comment section instead of just only the photo function in the comment. This was not only one message as I have sent Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg on regular basis to remind him that he need to add video function to the comment because so that it would allow us Deaf community to be able to respond our family members or our friends wall post with vlog and that we can respond using our language American Sign Language instead of text comment. I also have explained FaceBook CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying that we Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals are known to not fluent in writing English as it is not our first language as American Sign Language is our first language so this is why that we ask for the FaceBook to acknowledge that and to accept my suggestion by adding the video function for the comment on FaceBook so for once of all that we can finally respond using our native language American Sign Language instead of having to type a language that isn’t our native language which is English.

AG Bell Is At It Again!

AG Bell in short for Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, generally in the eyes of public AG Bell is just short for Alexander Graham Bell himself who is known for being inventor as he have invented phone that everybody uses inside their household but its eyes of the Deaf community the name AG Bell itself is shortened for Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing as both of these are practically same nonetheless. In the recent news, AG Bell have just detonated the ticking bomb not only in the Deaf community but also some professionals who is experts in the languages itself as there were a conference where AG Bell gave presentation by none other than the president of AG Bell, Meredith K. Sugar and in her presentation at a conference she declared that American Sign Language which is Deaf and Hard of Hearing’s native language is animal for any Deaf or Hard of Hearing child to learn. To be exact she declared that bilingualism is animal for any Deaf or Hard of Hearing child to learn, which referring to two languages in a package; American Sign Language and English is animal for anyone to learn. How does bilingualism works? When a Deaf or Hard of Hearing child born, that child would learn its native language which is American Sign Language as their first language so that the child have the ability to communicate at later in their life and then once their brain have developed to the point that they know how to communicate then they start learning English so they would know two languages which is what every business or colleges always look for in their application because they like anyone who is bilingual that fluent in more than one language.

Michael Hubbs Is Hypocrite.

Even though this blog aims for a broad of people in general, meaning that this weblog is not a Deaf niche blog as from the beginning to this day I write articles for the people regardless if they are or not Deaf or Hard of Hearing and any other kinds as I produces for the people regardless what their background is. That is and always have been my readers base for over eight (8) years as I write about everything so it’s not focused on just one niche or two as this blog is focuses on all kinds of niches or what I call it “all-in-one” niche. With that being said, I am going to start this article about a gentleman or should I say not-so-gentlemen in this case who goes by the name Michael Hubbs and he is somewhat a well-known person considering that he have decent numbers of fans base or followers because on his social media such as Twitter he has over 56 thousand followers which is somewhat surprising especially to me. Before I start writing the Deaf community’s perceptive of him along with my opinion too, Michael Hubbs is known as Deaf Speed Skater who have said that he will not allow any obstacles to get in his way of his dream to enter the 2018 Winter Olympics and he have entered the United States Olympics few years ago but failed to make it to the list to compete against others. I am not expert or even have much of knowledge in any kinds of olympics but I do understand how it goes, in United States Olympics or any olympics if you want to get in you must do some qualifying before you can get in it to compete against others and in that Michael Hubbs himself could not pass their qualification or in some sort of that progress to be qualified to enter the olympics so I hope this clarify a bit on what happens with Michael Hubbs.

Burger King Tribute To Deaf Community!

One of fast foods chain somewhere over in the district of D.C. here in the United States decided to do something special, by doing something special which means they showed their appreciate to the Deaf community by temporarily changing the looks of the fast food restaurant itself and that is the Burger King. What did they do that shows their appreciation to the Deaf community? By changing the looks of the restaurant itself temporarily with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing’s native language American Sign Language (ASL). Although by on the social media, the Deaf community is saying that it is only for one day as there is some Deaf events that are going on down there in the district of D.C. and in my opinion I believe that Burger King should keep the way they are for at least a few days or more so a week if possible because then that would truly show that Burger King does appreciate their Deaf and Hard of Hearing customers who order their foods on regular basis. Even though it may be only for one day, they still shows that they are an alliance of the Deaf community and I am almost certain that no other fast food chain restaurants will follow the Burger King’s example by doing something similar to show that they are also an ally to the Deaf community. Like its competitor Hardee’s? McDonald’s? Or even Wendy’s, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Taco Bell or others? So the way that Burger King did today is truly amazing for the Deaf community especially after an attempted to smear the Deaf Community from Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing aka AG Bell which you can find my article about what AG Bell did to the Deaf community here (click here).
