    I find it really sad that so many of us feel disconnected, mistrustful and disenchanted with our politicians at the moment. People feel that they are too professional, too aloof and do not represent the society we live in. This is especially the case for many people in the deaf and hard of hearing community, who feel so frustrated and disempowered by the political establishment. Some even wonder why they bother to vote at all.I recently attended .... Click here to read more at Richard Turner's blog.© Liz's Deaf Blog by Elizabeth Fisher.

Instead of just random body decoration, the semicolon actually has a deep and meaningful symbolism. The semicolon tattoo trend was started by Amy Bluel. When she lost her father to…

    Epilepsy and tinnitus are both caused by overly excitable nerve cells. Healthy nerves have a built-in system that slams on the brakes when they get too excited. The 'brakes' are actually potassium channels that regulate nerve signals. A new drug may treat both conditions by selectively opening potassium channels in the brain.

    I find it really sad that so many of us feel disconnected, mistrustful and disenchanted with our politicians at the moment. People feel that they are too professional, too aloof and do not represent the society we live in. This is especially the case for many people in the deaf and hard of hearing community, who feel so frustrated and disempowered by the political establishment.

    A new study promoted by hearing specialist Amplifon has revealed that diabetes and hearing loss may share an often ignored link. The Consensus Paper “Hearing and Diabetes”, promoted by Amplifon, puts in evidence studies in which type 1 and type 2 diabetes sufferers were discovered to be 2.15 times more likely to have a hearing impairment than the matched control group. Diabetes patients seem to be more susceptible to noise-induced hearing loss and this may be due to impaired recovery from noise-induced injury, the study concludes. Amplifon suggests people with diabetes should be urged to…

    The word is spreading I can tell pregnant women the sex of their baby BEFORE their ultrasound reveals the gender. Two women asked me yesterday what they were having. So far, the accuracy percentage is 100%.My trick? No trick.. It's Science! Male and female genders are created magnetically/energetically differently. I learned this during my Reiki practice at the end of a session when I was making sure all the client's energy centers (chakras) were unblocked with a final scan. Her Sacral Chakra responded differently, and I realized she was expecting... And she was going to have a girl.

    More grist to the ever-growing mill of deaf independence and the myth that it actually exists. Savage cuts to UK deaf and HI support are throwing out of work what jobs deaf people were able to get, and removing hard-won hard of hearing financial support and back up, because they are labelled the same as those cultural deaf despite not using same systems or communications or allude to a culture. Much anger is being seen recently online over UK ‘gestapo’ state attacks on support to get deaf and disabled into a job, with the main Minister showing real signs of clinical…

To cut a long story very short (too late!), he isn’t talking and to get some speech therapy, he needed to have (another) hearing test. (This would now be test number 4.) Having arrived there, under slightly calmly circumstances compared to last time, I was impressed. (That’s a whole other blog post.) You go in, take a ticket like you do it at the delicatessen and wait for your number to be called.

  • Stabbing Eardrums

    The Tree House
    21 Apr 2015 | 1:22 pm
    To our friends across the big pond, SJ happened to be watching a programme on British TV the other night called the “U.S. Bounty Hunters”.  A fugitive was being sought and to the bounty hunters amazement; they found him hiding behind an upright mattress. He was then thrown down to the ground and naturally he resisted in being restrained. Then, to SJ’s horror, the fugitive’s eardrum was stabbed in order to subdue him so they could put the restraints onto him. Stabbing an eardrum? Seriously? Who would commit such an act?! An act as such could be extremely damaging and dangerous.
