What of Luke Adams?
The Countdown To The Resurrection I'm not a fan of The Amazing Race. Once in a while, whenever I get bored, I watch it. But since it comes at the same time with The Family Guy — I tend to watch the Griffiths over The Amazing Race. Since Gay Boy Ritchie has disappeared off the map from BRAVO's Janice Dickinson's Modelling [...]

Oops! Sorry About It!
The Countdown To The Resurrection I know. I know. I basically lost the interest in doing blogging these days. One has to look at how Deaf people deals with each other ... I simply had no desire to deal with crap like that. But first things first. I'm back. And I shall blog ... on my own accord. I'm not going to [...]

The Countdown To The Resurrection After GoAmerica swallowed HOVRS and Verizon TRS, they did not stop as they went on their way to purchase two major interpreting agencies in Washington, DC area in an attempt to control the interpreters from working for other VRS companies.

6: HOVRS — What Is So Special About ‘Em?
The Countdown To The Resurrection Videophones. Like it or not, the videophones are vital to millions of Deaf individuals across not in this country but across the globe. Like it or not, the videophones are replacing TTYs these days. More and more Deaf people are tossing the TTYs in the closets and attics. The videophones, of course, spawned the need for [...]

8: I Don’t Know Where To Begin …
The Countdown To The Resurrection I simply did not bother to blog in the last couple of weeks mainly because I did not know where to begin with everything that has transpired so far. Some of you may be puzzled to see a famous image of Princess Di's funeral whom Prince Charles, Prince Harry, Prince William, Lord Charles Spencer, Diana's sister, [...]

9: Deaf Mario Lopez?
The Countdown To The Resurrection Is Jason Yeh the Deaf Mario Lopez?! When I first saw the picture, my first response was, “Whoa! Jason does look like Mario!” That picture is absolutely stunning, to say the least. In fact, I IMmed a good friend of mine in New York to tell her to check the article, her first response was: “OMG, Jason looks like [...]

The Countdown To The Resurrection Last week was busy for me. Work. Errands. Time to reflect and all that crap. But rest assured, Hanna's visit was brief and sweet. I have plenty to blog this week. But not at this moment. For some reasons, I cannot sleep. It is 3 AM EST. I need some Zs in order to get up early [...]

Of course, one has to tune in to watch the Oxygen Channel's Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency whom one Deaf model gets to live in a house with Janice Dickinson.

13: About Martin Ritchie
The Countdown To The Resurrection Oh lord. Word gets around that Martin Ritchie is going to star on Oxygen Channel's Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. Martin Ritchie is Deaf. At first, I did not recognize him ... I realized, “Oh, my gosh.” I knew Martin when he was a toddler. He was quite hyperactive kid but relatively nice boy. He used to live [...]

14: Beijing 2008 Opening Ceremony = Spectacular!
The Countdown To The Resurrection I really feel sorry for London 2012 Committee. Beijing has provided the best opening ceremony I ever had seen in any Olympics. Normally, these 3 to 5 hours of opening ceremony tends to be overbearing at times. But last Friday's 8-8-08 Opening Ceremony, I never felt the need to endure the whole program. [...]

15: Only $50,000?!
The Countdown To The Resurrection Not a long while ago on another blogsite, I wrote an entry blasting the local cops in St. Paul for their brutality upon a Deaf individual, Douglas Bahl. Suffice to say, the local press in Twin Cities got the wind of several blogs/vlogs, including mine, that basically embarrassed the Police Department and Sheriff's Office. Doug [...]

16: Six Degrees of Separation
The Countdown To The Resurrection You know, I do believe in 'six degrees of separation' theory. The theory can be explained through this link. Today, The Washington Post has an article about the research on Instant Messagers (IMs) which basically confirmed the 'six degrees of separation' theory not with 6 but 6.7. But it is relatively still close, anyway. Basically, the [......

The Countdown To The Resurrection 2008 Decision: For the next few months, we will have to endure the bombardments of political ads everywhere else (Internet, TV, newspapers, magazines ...) supporting and disparaging John McCain and Obama Barack to win our votes to get them in White House.

21: Cheers to NTID/RIT and Gallaudet
The Countdown To The Resurrection Condescending. That is the word that first came to me when I think of Matt Hamill. Double cheers to Amy Cohen-Efron for alerting the communities about Matt Hamill picking a hearing actor to perform as Deaf person. The result is that it sends a ripple effect to Washington and Rochester where they subsequently cancelled [...]

23: Not Again! $%@!!!
The Countdown To The Resurrection Many knew that I do not trust the cops. I avoid them as much as I can. Why? Because many, many, many, many cops trampled on Deaf individuals' dignity from A to Z. Of course, mainly with the communication barrier that led them to trample, dismiss, disregard, subjugate and disparage Deaf [...]

The Countdown To The Resurrection When I was a child, I observed my father reading the newspapers every morning. At VSDB, I often walked into Student Life Office to pick up the local papers to bring it in the Bass Hall Cafeteria for breakfast. Why? Because knowledge is power. To keep abreast of current events are important to [...]

That destroyed building eventually was converted into Sam's Club as Wal-Mart moved about few hundreds yards south into a new building.

Do YOU Observe The National Day Of Silence?
The Countdown To The Resurrection Do the Deaf Schools across the nation and Canada gets to observe the National Day of Silence last Friday on April 25, 2008?

The Countdown To The Resurrection Have anyone else read this novel before? I did. I was digging up few books out of a box that I had it stored away and sealed for a long time. I found this hardcover novel by Leslie Davis Guccione. ‘Tell Me How The Wind Sounds' was published Scholastic, Inc. in 1989, primarily designed for teenagers [...]

The Countdown To The Resurrection In Morganton, North Carolina — the sleepy town that sits right next to the Appalachian Mountains and the hometown of North Carolina School for the Deaf.

The Countdown To The Resurrection Have you noticed that the television animated programs are no longer restricted to children? Many of these shows are designated to target the teenagers and above.

The Countdown To The Resurrection Decisions must be made sooner or later. We gotta vote. The 2008 Decision eventually will torture all of us through the spring, summer and fall in time for the election in November. I personally am not looking forward to the negative barrage of public relations upon the candidates. It is nasty just [...]

46: Muslims & Xians? Bleargh!
The Countdown To The Resurrection Many knew that religions are the source of evil. They bred hate, fear and retributions. They bred intolerance. They bred classes. They bred almost everything that contradicts the nature of the evolution. Granted, there are many moderate folks within these religions. But they often allowed the extremists to take over and oppress others who do not [...]

The Countdown To The Resurrection Deaf Blogs & Vlogs: Last night, I had a brief conversation with one Deaf Vlogger. My disappointment with the large numbers of Deaf bloggers/vloggers are that they seemed to be divorced from the mainstreaming blogs. Yes, we are Deaf. But we are just a minority in this big, bad world ruled by whom? Hearing people. [...]
