    Zvrs acquires purple

    doesnt matter if it once or twice. zvrs is making things right. you have got to admire a vrs company cleaning things up if they didnt think the customer base wasnt worth it. whats important is that things are going in the positive direction finally. look at the past -- we have come a long ways...

    Medical model and cochlears

    i think perhaps your research would be better structured if you look at who pushes the CI the most? do they encourage ASL more then oralism ? look into ag bell who try to make deaf look "normal hearing". what you will find is shocking.
