Opinion on Anne E. Geers’s Research

Okay, where do I start here? Please note that this is my opinion and over 70 million people in the Deaf community are welcome to share their opinion on this subject as well.

I strongly believe that the research done by Anne E. Geers may be biased or improperly researched. In her article, it stated that she studied a different three groups where one of them would have newborn to learn sign language early on, one with cochlear implantation while learning spoken language such as English and one with cochlear implantation learning sign language. In her research, she stated that the group where the newborn who had cochlear implanted and learnt spoken language could speak more clear and better reading than the other two groups. I must ask, did Anna E. Geers herself handpicked the sign language teacher to teach the child sign language? And what exactly did she mean “sign language”? Doesn’t she realize that all other sign language modes besides American Sign Language has proved to be fail and that American Sign Language has proved to be successful for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing child? Another question, wasn’t she aware of bilingual-bicultural education? The fact that American Sign Language is a visual language, a recognized language at that and it is vital that the Deaf children to learn early on in their toddler age to help the child to understand communication itself so that the child can effectively learn written English through bilingual-bicultural education (American Sign Language and English). So, her “research” on early sign language (what sign language?) exposure and cochlear implantation benefits is much as fail as any. Not only that, cochlear implants does not help anyone to understand word by word because all it does is it gives them a sound and all they are for is to help them to aware their surrounding but not what people says. Her research can do more harm to little human beings and cannot be used anywhere except it can be perceived as Anne E. Geer’s opinion only.

Deaf Cultural Genocide

I am way behind on the hot topic and news on the Deaf community in general, mainly because I have been very busy lately and I could never find the time to write an article anywhere including my blog here but at least I will share my thought about this topic “Deaf Cultural Genocide” that was going around a few weeks ago. That would be better than not sharing any thoughts of mine on that topic so here I am to give a piece of my thought on the topic that was trending in the Deaf community, several weeks ago an associate professor at Gallaudet University wrote an article stating that if anyone who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing decides to participate in the medical or science research that supposedly cure deafness by receiving genetic therapy that they would allow a form of cultural genocide and it would be unethical of them to do so. There are medical research labs or sciences especially that specialize in stem cells, compete to come up with a proven cure to eliminate the deafness either at birth or at some minimum to maximum ages for anyone who want to have the ability to hear and or that the child who was discovered Deaf after the birth to have the ability to hear at the parents’ request/wishes.

2016 U.S. Presidential Election, Vote and Debates

A four years term is up and we are getting ready to be going into the 2016 United States Presidential Election at this time of the year for United States presidential. We have had Barrack Obama for two terms since the year of 2008, some people hates him and some people loves him as everybody have different opinions about our current President of the United States, Barrack Obama. Regardless what is your opinion of Barrack Obama, he have done some good things and he have done some bad things just as every past presidents of the united states have done and the future presidents of the united states will be doing. No one is perfect, nobody can do a such feat that do everything good and done nothing bad. I will say that I am happy that we had Barrack Obama as our president of the united states opposite the other presidential candidates at that time such as Republican John McCain in the year of 2008 versus Democrat Barrack Obama and then in 2012 Republican Mitt Romney versus Democrat Barrack Obama. Thankfully Barrack Obama won the election in the year of 2008 and once again thankfully Barrack Obama won the re-election in the year of 2012 because we wouldn’t want John McCain or Mitt Romney in the office as we have seen how they were after the elections as they have done nothing good so imagine one of them won the election then the things that they had done in past these years after election would be the same thing as if they were president of the United States. You can hate or love Barrack Obama, the point is that he was a better choice at these both times and it is probably best choices that the American have done by electing Barrack Obama twice considering who were the other presidential candidates at both times.

Freedom Of Speech.

Every Americans have the rights to freedom of speech, that has been a problem with social media lately because everyone is trying to enforce other people to vote their preferred presidential candidates or shoot down their opinions on each presidential candidates just because they thinks that their opinions is the only matters when they aren’t even come close to true as everyone’s opinion do matters. I can understand that when it comes to anyone talking about presidential candidates for the President Of The United States next year when Barrack Obama packs his things and leaves the office for good due to law that no president of the united states can run more than two terms of presidency which is four years per term. What bothers me more than anything is that I get to see a lot of adults not allowing young people such as teenagers even if they aren’t old enough to vote but they have the right to freedom of speech and do so you but the problem is that you abuse that by trying to make it known that your opinion is more matter than any other opinions which is a foolish thing to do. Understandably the election is obviously, sensitive thing to talk about as politics become almost sensitive as discussing about religious and that isn’t good at all. Now everyone including you have freedom of speech, each of you have the right to express each of your opinions but you do not have the right to deny someone’s freedom of speech by telling other several people who your opinions is more intelligent or more right than theirs.

Language Deprivation.

Language is a very important tool for communication otherwise we as human beings would not have a way to communicate with each others, pardon me I am actually wrong because as I wrote that I just realized that the human beings can communicate with each others using gestures or by visual but still a language is what makes it easier for us human beings to communicate with each others and thankfully there is a very long list of languages that allows us human beings to communicate with each others. Each language is in within’ our DNA, in other words our native language that we inherited from the earlier generations or the first language that we learned after the birth so that we can be able to communicate with our parents or to kickstart our education because without language then how are we able to learn? The language is very essential in our life, the language that we comfortably understand and communicate smoothly with others. Now there are a very large group, some organizations and even corporations always set out to make sure that we communicate using their language preference such as English here in the United States therefore they are on the look to deprive our native language by trying their darndest best to convince many of us human beings that their language preference will make us more successful in a long run than our own native language that we inherited from the many generations of our families or to try to come up with false medical information such as saying that using our own native language over their language preference will cause us to have a brain cancer or similar (it’s true, Starkey Foundation is one perfect example of that).

Should I get Hulu?!

Hulu Logo

As of lately I have watched several television shows on Netflix such as The Walking Dead, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practices, House M.D., Gotham, Arrow, S.H.I.E.L.D and few of other popular name of shows which they are the television shows that I pretty much watch on daily basis through Netflix streaming video on mostly my huge 4K smart television on the wall. While I have the appreciation for Netflix to give me something to watch that I wasn’t able to watch through standard cable due to difference in my schedules because every time one of my favorite television shows comes on I am never available or have any free time to just sit back and watch them but I have a bit of problem with Netflix which is that Netflix only carry a year old season of every new television shows like The Walking Dead, Gotham, Arrow, S.H.I.E.L.D. and others. Some of you know that I am probably one of some person who is very impatient and never liked to wait for something before I could get which in this case to be able to watch a new episode after it have been aired through the standard cable. Lately I am running out of episodes for several television shows that I am a big fan of such as The Walking Dead which Netflix released fifth season last weekend I believe and ever since the fifth season was released I already almost finished watching the entire fifth season so of course I am going to be wanting more episodes to watch.
