Monthly Text-A-Thon Fundraisers To Be Held At Eye Fire Vlogs Website Starting September 2012

http://tinyurl.com/deaf-text-a-thon

Coming soon to a communication device already in your hand, purse, or pocket. Our monthly TEXT-A-THON fundraisers will bring you excitement.



Text based relay communication systems are heavily favored better by our society over visual based systems like video relay systems.

Bookmark this backup telethon page and like the telethon page too http://tinyurl.com/deaf-text-a-thon.

As we will have exciting text based telethon chat and sponsor offerings starting this coming September, we promise it'll be much much more exciting than the TTY-A-Thon! Why? After seeing the results of and receiving a lot of feedback from the public regarding both the TTY and Videophone telethons, we determined that the TEXT COMMUNICATIONS RULES!

A Visual Valentine for You

This short movie is another one of my experiments in visual expression. I've seen similar slide shows on the internet set to music. I chose to have no audio track for this one and to use visual effects instead to provide interest when the photos change.

Out of the Great Silence

When I hear the name Solomon Islands, beautiful imagery of white sandy beaches, blue skies, and coconut palms lining the shores fill my mind. Paradise untouched.

The “Why” of SendOutCards

My journey with SendOutCards began when my friend Ann Marie Mickelson sent me a card shortly after my dad passed away. When I opened the card, my heart literally skipped a beat.

Surgery Booked

Our one hour appointment at the hospital turned into an afternoon event. It started with Tex-Mex for the adults and a meat lover’s pizza for X, was punctuated by Starbucks and signing on multiple dotted lines, and ended with the purchase of a police vehicle set from the gift shop.

Hey Video Marketers: Caption Your Videos for the Marketing Value, Too

There is a lot of resistance (passive and active) to captioning videos online through YouTube or similar services. Some people don’t ever even consider it an option, even people who are trying to market themselves.

Tinnitus infographic: a visual guide to tinnitus

Another excellent infographic from Amplifon. 50% of sufferers find tinnitus moderately or severely distressing yet 93% haven’t consulted a doctor, wonder why that is? Maybe people don’t see a doctor because it isn’t a pain or making them feel ill?

The Salt Lake Convention 2012

President Hurwitz shares his dream for Gallaudet in State of the University Address

President Hurwitz drew inspiration from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his February 7 State of the University Address, which celebrated Gallaudet's past and present and envisioned its future. Dr. Hurwitz said he chose "A Dream for Gallaudet" as the title for his presentation after a moving January 19 tribute to the late civil rights leader hosted by the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, the Black Deaf Student Union, and the Student Body Government.

What an ill chicken tells us about deaf access to universities and college

New IFHOH Journal Online: For all interested in hearing...

Lots of good things in the IFHOH newsletter, as usual. [link] The need for much more inclusion of captioning (subtitling, CART, STT, steno, fast typing, palantype, velotype) is vital to mention also. This is our language too and it's missing in too many places.

Savonoralia: The Rape of a Poet by Seattle

Probably as a result of the hemorraghue by ghoulish attorney falling over each other to service Penis Dixon, I can no longer blog in The Chinatown Gazetteer.  If this is as I expect the case it is very typical of the situation that The Bill of Rights was finally subverted by a The Black Man.

SO by Peter Gabriel was a criminal outrage.  JFK by Oliver Stone was a Confederate Act with the AIDS Combine.  Both murderers puppeteered me.
