NASA reported the 7 Crematories in Wuhan were 24/7 filling 30 gallon galvanized steel trash cans of ashes. (Makes me wonder how many people would grind down...

    Do you think the Deaf-community is similar to the LGBT+ one?

    The deaf were deaf. They were people in their own way like all people. Individuals. The alternative lifestyle took hold in MSD among the Girls first in the middle to highschool as a cool thing back in the 80's thereabouts.

    School Captions

    No closed caption in college. Not with what I was working inside IT etc for a couple of years. The first year they provided a interpreter until I learned the voices of teachers, staff and so on. Once I had that there was no trouble. As always I worked pretty hard to stay ahead of everyone as...

    does anybody know any good ways to learn and memorize the ASL alphabet?

    Sign Language is a living thing. You learn the langauge as it is for yourself first. When you are able to communicate slowly in the beginning with other deaf, you will slowly be taught new words and letters etc. Over a time with deaf you will have developed your own language. The reason I say...

    Trip in America

    You can run America as I have done for a lifetime and not see it all. And I have been pretty much everywhere you can get a semi tractor trailer into all over the USA. I recommend that due to the political problems in several states combined with lockdowns in others forget about coming to America...

    Sexual Abuse of Deaf Students in Schools...

    I would want you to think that if you are good, as in not harboring any evil then the Kids will love to have you in that School or wherever. If working there fulfills you then go for it.
