Why I Blog

I see a lot of the people starts off with a trend of Why I _____ and I figured that I will do one for blog. People have already started a few trends of “Why I” such as “WhyIVlog”, “WhyISign” and others. To my knowledge, I may be wrong and if I am wrong then please correct me by leaving a comment below here so I can make a correction note on here. That the “Why I” was originally started by the Deaf community with #WhyISign where anyone who knows American Sign Language and breath in American Sign Language to make a short videos to share why they sign. You can find #WhyISign on Twitter and Facebook if you are interested in see some responses from the people who shares their reason to why they use American Sign Language. So I am going to do one for the blog and this is #WhyIBlog! Hope that all of you enjoy reading some of my reasons to why I blog and I encourage that all of you bloggers to do the same by making a post on your blog with the title “Why I Blog” then use the hashtag on social media #WhyIBlog so that all of bloggers can read some responses from the blogosphere via social media like Twitter or Facebook.

11-7-2016 Tidbits

I am sorry that I have been MIA (Missing In Action) in the blogosphere for about a week, I know that is not the usual and that isn’t the unusual either as if you have noticed lately before this week I have started to become more active as a blogger for the last few months but then in the beginning of this week immediately put me on break due to a few reasons but the main reason I immediately was dropped out of blogging radar is because of the family matter which I will share on that with you in a few minutes here. I wrote the article in the beginning of the week saying that I will be taking a break from blogging for a while which you can find that article by looking for the article before this article and I said that I would have no idea when I would be done with taking a break, that is until I feel comfortable enough to get back in doing what I am passionate in. So this is to say that I am back, at least for now but I am not sure about being more active that I have been the least few months because I am not exactly all the way ready to be back yet as I have something else on my mind and that is why I have decided that I would just catch up all the topics that I have written down on the list while on break so in hope to put my mind to ease over what had happened to me in the beginning of this week. How are you everybody doing? I hope that all of you are doing great, enjoying the Fall season and starting to feel the winter coming? It’s getting colder here in the eastern part of Kentucky so that means that it’s reminding us to be ready for the winter to come in a few weeks this month or the beginning of next month December.

News Outlet Improperly Labeling Deaf

There are hundreds or thousands of news outlet including the big names of news companies, medium companies and unknown companies that everybody reads daily to gather some information about what is going on around in this country which is United States or internationally. There are some of the people who don’t follow or keep up with the news on the current events or news about what is happening locally, nationally and internationally. But there is several people who do keep up with the news including myself so that we could be informed with what is going on around in our country here in the United States or in other countries and there are a few services that allows some of us to personalize some news that we would like to get daily under our favorite sources such as Google News, Yahoo News, Bing News and some news apps like that news app in iOS 10 that allows you to personalize the way news you want them to come to you. My go-to for getting some information and news is Google News that allows me to only get most of the news from the sources/news outlet that I prefer and there are different news related that I personalized to get. For example, United States, Politics, World, Technology, Business, Social Media, Domain, Hosting, Deaf, Kentucky and West Virginia is my picks for news related. Not in particular order, nonetheless I saw an article that relates to Deaf news that had a video in that article and I decided to check the video out which of course it burst my bubbles as I am tired of some journalists, reporters, editors or bloggers labels Deaf people poorly whether it be intentional or unintentional.

Women Still Voting Donald Trump?

If some of you women have decided to change your mind to vote for Donald Trump then I absolutely don’t blame you at all but if any of you women decides that you still are voting Donald Trump then I am somewhat disappointed in some of you. Even though I may be hugely advocate for Deaf community that doesn’t means that I also advocate for others such as causes, things, humans and some more including the women. If you think that just because I am a male myself that means I don’t care about the women rights or damaging the dignity of the women then you are very wrong about that because even though I may be a male but that does not stops me from caring about the women after all I have some women in my life that I care more than anything in the world. Whatever I sees anybody or anything that degrades woman, I don’t appreciate that because after all regardless if we are men or women we always birthed on this earth from what gender? Exactly, our mothers and they are women so no matter what genders I am not going to allow anybody to degrade my mother or says something as if my mother or any women as if they are some objects which is something that I am very much against. As of lately I am sure that some of you notices that Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump is known for degrading the women more than ever, even way before he decided to run for the office in Washington, D.C. as President of the United States.

Police Doesn’t Protect Deaf, Instead Harms Deaf

You would think that the law enforcement are hard on the colored people, abuse their power against them and did several police brutality on them but what many people does not realize is that they are not the only one. Law Enforcement gives Deaf and Hard of Hearing people a very hard time as there are several stories about their experiences when they had confrontation with the police. One of several experiences, there were a Deaf woman who called police for immediate help because she was being beaten by her boyfriend or husband so once the police arrived at their residence and the Deaf woman were approached by the police where she would be supposedly to explain the situation about her husband or her boyfriend beat her to the plum but instead the police never took the time to hear her explanation so they tasered her then body slams her to the ground with their knees on the back of her body and cuffed her then books her to the jail while the husband or boyfriend who can hear were scoot-free. So imagine the horror as if you were in her shoes, the police never even questioned that man or even to let the woman to tell them what was going on or the reason for their call to the police station so they immediately arrested a victim and booked her there without an interpreter to read her rights which is illegal under American with Disabilities Act 1990. Didn’t even bother asking that man about the situation or anything, as they just tasered her, arrested her then put her in the back of the car and left while that man get to chill at her house with a jail-free card given by the police. How can they do that?

Olympic Rio 2016, United States Won It All!

I would like to personally congratulate all the athletes from United States of America for not only winning the most medals but also winning the most gold, silver and bronze medals in Olympic RIO 2016! United States team have won exactly 121 total medals with mix of 46 gold, 37 silver and 38 bronze medals which is an unbelievably feats for the United States team bringing to their home in the United States. Of course I am not the only one, but I am sure that most of Americans in United States are very happy about their awesome feat too as they brings home more than just the most gold medals but also most medals with the mix of gold, silver and bronze. Of course the sport in the United States is undoubtedly the best out of any other countries, however there are a country that is better at a certain sport than the United States which I am sure that most of us know that it is the United Kingdom in soccer or they call it football over there but over here in the United States we calls it soccer and that somewhat make a sense because the ball touches the foot so football so I see why United Kingdom came up with that name for the sport. But the rest, United States dominates the sport nonetheless and I would also like to congratulate every other country’s team for bringing some medals to their home because Olympic is all about the sport itself. Even though I am American living here in the United States, of course I am going to say that I am unbelievably proud of the United States team for having a such feat like this, bringing home the most medals along with all other most three medals but still I think we can say that it is a healthy and fun sport while at the same time congratulating other country’s team even those who didn’t win any medals because all it counts is the sportsmanship.
