    On the first night of my new class, Communication Training, my professor had us take a Myers-Briggs personality test. I was very interested in this activity because I had taken one about 25 years ago and remembered my result was ESFJ. I was able to remember that distinctly because it was around the time I was in library school and the typical librarian is an ISFJ. I was curious if my personality type had changed over the years. My results showed I was now an ISFJ. At first, I attributed that to nearly two decades of working in libraries. But then the thought occurred to me that perhaps it was…

    The thylacine, more commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger, was the largest marsupial carnivore to ever walk the Earth. It is believed that this creature went extinct in 1936. It is one of the approximately 795 extinct species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List. Since 1963, the list has been tracking the planet’s biodiversity.

    I have a compassion for the challenged, to include the Hard of Hearing and Deaf population. My Dad was hard of hearing and ASL would have been a Blessing to him. He was born hard of hearing and from what I've been told, had a hard time coping with his challenge of his hearing loss. I only wish I had known of ASL when I was younger, I could have helped him through some tough times. Since then, I have been led down the path of learning ASL and I love every minute of it! I only hope, as time goes on, I can help others along the way..

    In November, Alabama courts made history by handing down a record-breaking eight-year sentence in a federal dog fighting case. Now, the remaining two defendants in the case—which marked the second-largest dog fighting bust in U.S. history—have received their sentences, and the news is just as exciting. The remaining defendants were sentenced for dog fighting offenses and ordered to pay restitutions totaling nearly $2 million to the ASPCA for the care of the dogs seized. The ASPCA is grateful to Assistant U.S. Attorney Clark Morris of the Office of the U.S. Attorney George L. Beck for…

They talk about some of the things they miss out on, such as socialising with other parents, or chatting with their child’s teacher. But they also say that being a parent has taught them to be patient, and that their confidence has grown over time. As one mum says, if you need help, ‘Just ask. People are happy to help. Don’t feel you can’t because you’re deaf. Be confident, get involved.’

Main character Kyra is supposed to follow her mother’s line of interpreting the future by listening to the stars’ songs but Kyra is deaf and her mother is broken-hearted because she doesn’t…

The Kirkus Review describes it as "Hormones, hearing and “Deafness 101” collide to form Schrocke’s offbeat novel."

    5 Jan 2015 | 3:22 pm
    If you are in an abusive relationship, you feel you can not get away from your abuser. You may need to get a retraining order if your abuser keeps trying to get you back in his control.  As for an example, he knew my weakness that I would go back if he picked up my youngest kid from a school. I had told them that if it happened, I would not turn back to him if he took my youngest one away from me.   That's how I got my R.O.   Getting a restraining order placed on your abuser this can make staying away from them much easier.  It's also for peace on yourself.

    Membership dues at hearing clubs can be real expensive – somewhere between $250.00 and $1,000 and even higher. The Pittsburgh Association of the Deaf, one of the nation’s most respected deaf clubs, recently posted a list of its revised membership dues. To make it short, for active members it is $45.00 per year. It is a huge bargain as compared to other hearing clubs and hearing societies. Yet, it is sad that some deaf people feel that $45.00 is VERY expensive! These same deaf people don’t complain that Starbucks can be more expensive. Read more…

  • Family income, child behavior factors in legal disputes about kids with autism

    12 Jan 2015 | 3:13 pm
    A national survey of parents of kids with autism indicates these families with higher incomes are more likely to use their procedural safeguards -- including mediation and due process hearings -- to solve disputes with schools over their children's education.
  • Two brain regions join forces for absolute pitch

    7 Jan 2015 | 5:17 am
    People who have "absolute pitch" can identify notes immediately without relying on a reference tone. Intensive research is being conducted into the neuronal basis of this extraordinary ability. The researchers have now detected a close functional link between the auditory cortex in the brain and the frontal lobe in these extraordinary people -- a discovery that is not only important in theory, but also in practice.
  • Vitamin supplement successfully prevents noise-induced hearing loss

    2 Dec 2014 | 9:38 am
    A way to prevent noise-induced hearing loss has been found in a mouse using a simple chemical compound that is a precursor to vitamin B3. This discovery has important implications not only for preventing hearing loss, but also potentially for treating some aging-related conditions that are linked to the same protein.
  • New process helps identify odorant receptors in live mice

    1 Dec 2014 | 1:30 pm
    The receptors activated by two odors have been identified by researchers using a new method that tracks responses to smells in live mice. Using a fluorescent protein to mark nerve cells activated by odors, researchers identified the receptors that allow mouse nerve cells to respond to two odors: eugenol, which is a component of several spices, most notably cloves, and muscone, known as musk.
  • Dogs hear our words and how we say them

    26 Nov 2014 | 9:43 am
    When people hear another person talking to them, they respond not only to what is being said -- those consonants and vowels strung together into words and sentences -- but also to other features of that speech -- the emotional tone and the speaker's gender, for instance. Now, a report provides some of the first evidence of how dogs also differentiate and process those various components of human speech.

SIP is a newer method for video communication to talk to each other. The old method was called H.323 and H.323 is in the process of being phased out and everyone is moving to SIP. The providers have put together a working proposal and have met with the FCC on January 6th. The FCC has to agree to make some changes to its rules.

While most of the content is severely mis-read, it is quite hilarious to watch people say things that they are absolutely not saying at all. Bad Lip Reading works hard to make the video entertaining and totally unoriginal. You can watch how Jim Caldwell is explaining what type of pickles he likes to a ref or fast-forward and watch Cam Newton’s postgame interview unlike any other interview you ever seen. Best part is that Bad Lip Reading has closed captioned everything so you’re not gonna miss a beat!
