Although Americans tourists are banned from entering the country, I went under the journalism category.
It's only an hour flight, Cuban visa can be bought during check-in at the airline counter before departure, just don't forget your passport. I exchanged dollars into their convertible  (CUC) pesos upon arrival. I stayed at an hostel next to the baseball stadium. I focused on videotaping their culture alone rather than being somewhat biased traveling group with their hectic schedule. One day took a Soviet era Lada taxi to outskirts of Havana to visit a Deaf school. They asked me what we Deaf Americans do with our obsolete TTY as we are using VP nowadays, hopefully some organizations will donate those equipment. I felt like was blasted into the past, surrounded by all those vintage automobiles.


Dean of Student Affairs

Gallaudet just announced this morning that it completed the search for its new Dean of Student Affairs position, selecting the best qualified candidate to fit our changing campus demographic needs. In the past we had the majority of our students are from state Deaf schools but nowadays we get them from mainstreamed schools and foreign countries. Our mission have changed over the years, from instructions in ASL to adapting to the students needs, providing oral interpreters, learning English as a second language and accepting hearing students to fill in the gap.
I was shocked that Alexandra Graham Bell was selected as the new Dean of Students of Gallaudet, thought he was dead. 
Our stargate portal, designed by a Deaf engineering student, allows us to travel back into the past to collect AGB's DNA sample to bring it back to our laboratory, funded by NIH, at an undisclosed location to clone him, then indoctrinate him in both in ASL and Deaf Cultural propaganda.
 "I wouldn't mess with God, wouldn't you?" 
AGB's comment on cochlear-implants"
AGB was upset to learn of the organization that promotes oralism are using tactics that's destroying his reputation, and plans to shut it down. NAD serves everyone, we don't need division, we can work together for the common good that benefit us both.

Anyway, despite the controversially surrounding its choice, AGB will be the oldest administrator in Gallaudet history, of being born before its existence is something of an achievement, student leaders, faculty and staff will give AGB a benefit of doubts. People can changed their attitudes over time and remember that our enemies are friends we haven't met. 
In other news, American School for the Deaf (ASD) in Connecticut are experiencing a shortages of teachers and have asked Gallaudet to cloned a few Laurent Clercs. The government of Brazil recently inquire about Gallaudet cloning programs, I don't even want to know what they got on their mind.
AGB first project is a workshop for married students of having affairs on campus, "isn't that what student affairs all about, I may be old fashioned, but there are positions that are sexual enough."
