    In my interview with Cecily Anne Paterson, she explained, “I certainly didn’t set out to write a book about a deaf girl. It all came about because I needed a plot device...” I adored her first book, Invisible. Although a plot point, she offers a dynamic character; in numerous ways, my own inner 13-year-old can relate to Jazmine’s feelings of isolation and how those middle years of adolescence can truly be tough. In her sequel, Paterson doesn’t need a plot device. Jazmine, a 14-yr-old girl who is deaf and fluent in Auslan, is an established character. When I review books with deaf…

  • Ears and hearing effects continue to reverberate after Boston marathon bombing

  • Best supporting actors -- in your ears? Research points to potential way to restore hearing

    12 Nov 2014 | 6:30 am
    There’s a cast of characters deep inside your ears -- many kinds of tiny cells working together to allow you to hear. The lead actors, called hair cells, play the crucial role in carrying sound signals to the brain. But new research shows that when it comes to restoring lost hearing ability, the spotlight may fall on some of the ear’s supporting actors – and their understudies.
  • Bilingual brains better equipped to process information

    12 Nov 2014 | 5:45 am
    Speaking more than one language is good for the brain, according to new research that indicates bilingual speakers process information more efficiently and more easily than those who know a single language. The benefits occur because the bilingual brain is constantly activating both languages and choosing which language to use and which to ignore, said a researcher.

    10 Nov 2014 | 5:22 am
    Bobbing your head, tapping your heel, or clapping along with the music is a natural response for most people, but what about those who can’t keep a beat? Researchers have discovered that beat-deafness, though very rare, is a problem not simply of how people feel a pulse or move their bodies, but instead, how people synchronize with sounds they hear.

  • Editorial #145: Look–If AT&T and Verizon Can Be Interoperable, Why Can’t The VRS Industry Do It?

    pbravin
    7 Nov 2014 | 5:04 am
    Recently, ATT and Verizon announced plans to make their new LTE networks interoperable (link). They are major giants in the industry and see a need for this. The VRS industry, while getting better, is still not 100% interoperable. We continue to see things like poor video connections, black screens, and address books that cannot be ported. Dr. Z is challenging the VRS industry to move on—we all have to deal with a dominant provider who is causing all this. While they all including the dominant provider have been meeting periodically on SIP interoperability–there are areas within…
  • Why Don’t Deaf People Use Twitter? Dr. Z Does and It’s Great!

    31 Oct 2014 | 7:44 am
    Dr. Z has been using Twitter for some time–it’s a great resource. But we all know deaf people don’t use it–they use Facebook, iMessage, VRS and other tools to communicate and read. Dr. Z thinks Twitter is like a visual radio. The problem with Twitter is that it is a bit confusing to use and learn at the beginning. ZVRS uses Twitter and Facebook to communicate with the public. Dr. Z will give you tips on Twitter for the next couple months. As a beginning, you don’t need to set up a Twitter account to use Twitter. To follow CNN on Twitter, simply type…

The towns residents felt something could have been done better for the area. I agree with that too. Also when the sun dial first went up, it wasn't long said how one of the roman numerals were placed wrong. I don't know if this was ever corrected. I did not even know anything was wrong when it first went up, as I don't really know my roman numerals, so I would…

My mother and I LOVED the city, the culture that has been preserved, and especially the architecture. We visited museums and spent much time in the Old City.I was amazed how much the city had grown along the outskirts. It looked so different from what I remember from my visit decades ago. I wanted to visit the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, but to our dismay, the streets were too narrow and there was no parking for a large RV, let alone one towing a car like we are. We decided we…
